Bail Bonds Anytime
We Accept All Major Credit Cards, Debit Cards, Cash, and Checks
For this service, the defendant is charged a percentage of the bail amount.
Before being released the defendant or a relative or friend of the defendant, typically contacts a
bail agent to arrange for the posting of bail. Prior to the posting of a bail bond, the defendant
or a co-signer must guarantee that they will pay the full amount of bail if the defendant does not
appear in court.
Typically, a family member or a close friend of the defendant will post bail and cosign. Collateral
is not always required for a person to be bailed from jail. Often a person can be bailed from jail
on the signature of a friend or family member. Cosigners typically need to be working and either
own or rent a home in the same area for some time.
After an agreement is reached, the bail agent posts a bond for the amount of the bail, to guarantee
the defendant’s return to court.
If the defendant "skips", the cosigner is immediately responsible for the full amount of
the bail. If the defendant is located and arrested by the bail agent the cosigner is responsible
for all expenses the bail agent incurs while looking for the defendant.
