Here’s What You Need to Know Before You Call a Bail Bondsman

You have gotten arrested…what happens next? You will be taken to the nearest jail and your fingerprints will be taken, as well as your photograph. Once you have been processed through the system, authorities will book your stay. You’re allowed one or two phone calls, so take advantage of these opportunities. Speak to a family member or friend and inform them of your location and conviction. You may also want to call a bail bondsman right away, but here’s what you need to know before making the call.

Information to Give During Call

In order to expedite the bail process, there’s a couple of things you should have on hand when speaking with a bondsman:

Personal Information

You will need to present your full name and current/permanent address, contact information, as well as your date of birth.

Location of Jail and Booking number

A bail bondsman will need to know the name of the jail, city, and state you are booked in. Locating an inmate can be quite difficult without the proper information. You are also given a booking number. Make sure you know the entire sequence.

Bail Amount

Before you make the call, ensure that you will be getting bail and what the amount is. A bail bondsman won’t be able to proceed without this information. 

Previous Records

A bail bond company likes to know who they are working with. They might ask you for previous records. If you have a number of unsolved bail bond issues in the past, a bondsman may be less inclined to help. 

What You Need to Know About Bail

Before asking for a bond, you should have a brief understanding of the bail process.

Qualifications

Not every inmate is given the option for bail. When you are arrested, you will be assigned an arraignment date. During this arraignment, a judge will tell you what you are being convicted of, as well as if you qualify for bail. There are a couple factors that influence the judge’s decision. Your criminal history, your flight risk, and the severity of the crime are just a few. If you qualify, the judge will also let you know what the amount is.

After you have this information, call A-EZ Out Bail Bonds right away. We will post bail for you, and you will be set free until your trial.

Financial Responsibility

When you get a bond from our bondsmen, you only need to pay a small percentage of the bail amount. A-EZ Out Bail Bonds will cover the rest. Essentially, a bail bond is like a loan. If you show up to all of your trials and court dates, the loan will be repaid to us. Therefore, you won’t owe anything, other than the small percentage you paid to secure the bond. However, if you don’t show up to your trial and court dates, you will be responsible for paying back the entire bail amount, as well as other fees.

Payment Options

There are different payment options available to help you pay the small percentage of the bail amount to secure a bond with us. We don’t want monetary issues to be the reason you are stuck behind bars.
