Plano, Texas Bail Bonds
Collin County Bonds Office
Forbes Magazine has named Plano as the safest city in America. That is quite an honor for any city. But it does not mean Plano is without crime. It is just well-policed and well-supported by the citizens. The city has a police department and two additional substations. There are juvenile holding facilities. Collin County Detention Center is nearby.
These facilities can place you next to potentially violent felons, and that can inevitably leave an impact that follows you well beyond the overnight stay. In other words, it is the Plano you don’t want to see. And at A-EZ Out Bail Bonds, we’re committed to getting you or an arrested loved one as far away from them as possible.
This is how we operate as well as what you can expect from the moment of arrest until the moment you are released.
Your arrest isn’t the first case we’ve ever worked. Our bail bond office has been open and active in the Plano area for a number of years. We’re very familiar with the officers of the Plano Police Department as well as those operating through Collin County and the Sheriff’s Office and courts system.
Knowing how each area handles the booking and arraignment procedures and having familiarity with the people running those operations gives us a distinct advantage over other bail bondsmen in the area.
From the moment you or your loved one give us the go-ahead, we begin tracking progress in real time. Through a combination of court databases as well as the aforementioned familiarity with procedure and personnel, we know where our subjects are through every phase of the booking process. We also know the patterns regarding arraignment (i.e., how it’s usually handled, whether and when to expect delays, etc.).
Real-time tracking is important because it speeds up the time of issuing payment. And the sooner payment is issued, the sooner you or your loved one is released.
Bail Schedule Support
One of the most nerve-wracking things about the bail process — other than the arrest, of course — is finding out how much you’re going to have to pay. The average person probably hasn’t heard of bail schedules, or he or she is unfamiliar with what the specific amounts are for each offense.
We’ve handled so many cases over the years that we’re very familiar with how the bail schedule operates, including any recent changes. That allows us to look at the charges and find the corresponding payment amount quickly and efficiently.
But we also know that bail schedules aren’t always accurate if there is a dispute with the amount from either the defense or prosecutor sides. Defense attorneys usually argue for release on one’s own cognizance or they ask for the scheduled amount to be lowered. Prosecutors take the opposite approach.
Ultimately, the judge has the final say on adjusting the bail amounts. He usually makes that decision based on the nature of the offense and the probability that if he lets you go, you’ll show up for the future hearing date.
This is a process we’ve seen many times, and we are adept at preparing for the final amount. That gives us the ability to share clear expectations of what is owed and when with you or the person(s) acting on your behalf.
Finding out the final bail amount isn’t time to panic. A $5,000 bail amount, for instance, doesn’t mean you have to come up with $5,000. In such a scenario, the amount is usually around $500, or 10 percent of the whole.
The problem is, for many, that’s a whole paycheck. Spending that kind of money all at once can cause significant financial harm to a person’s, or family’s, finances.
We believe in a better approach. Full payment transparency is our priority. That way, you know exactly what is owed in your specific situation. We then will handle the payment transaction with the court. You pay very little upfront and then pay off the rest on a payment schedule that works with you and your household budget.
Unlike many of our competitors, we don’t prey on you with high-interest loans — ours is zero percent — and we advocate wherever and whenever we can for you with court and police personnel, by serving as a notary on any documents you need to have notarized, and by not delaying or frustrating you through time-consuming acts like credit checks before issuing payment.
