Inmate and Arrest Information
First, you’ll be asked for the basic information about the inmate. You will be expected to provide their first name, last name, date of birth, location of arrest, booking number, and the nature of their crime. From there, the bail bondsman can usually help to locate where exactly they are being held. Having this basic information on hand will speed things up.
Before you contact a bail bondsman, keep in mind the inmate won’t be visible in a database until the booking process is completed.
A bail bond agreement is a legally binding document. You’ll need to give some information about yourself to the bondsman when you co-sign an agreement. They will need your name and birthday, and they’ll most likely want to know about your employment, residence, and financial situation. This is done because the bondsman needs to know if you are able to cover your share of the bail bond price. For those who are not able to cover their share, a bondsman will work with you to set up a payment plan depending on your levels of disposable income. They might also set up some form of collateral for backup, such as real estate, vehicles, credit cards, or other items of similar value.
You might also be asked about your own criminal record. If you have legal troubles, outstanding debts or a history of skipping out on court dates, you might not be approved to co-sign the bond. The bondsman simply wants to make sure you’re reliable enough to keep the defendant out of trouble after their release.
