As soon as I realized that my personal financial picture was a little bleak, I started thinking about taking out a personal loan. I wasn't really looking forward to going into debt, but I knew that if I wanted to solve a few short-term problems, a loan would be the way to go. I talked with a few of my local financial institutions to get a good idea of what they could offer me, and then I sat down to go over the paperwork. It was incredible to see how much money I could save by securing a lower interest rate. Check out my blog for more information about loans.
If you need a fast and inexpensive solution to getting a friend out of jail, nothing can beat a bail bonding company. Their sole purpose is to assist nervous and stressed-out friends and family members in gaining a release from jail. To find out what you need to know about dealing with bail bonding companies, read on.
What to know about bail – Not everyone is given the opportunity for bail, so your friend is fortunate if they have that chance. The more serious the offense, the lower the chances for bail. Bail is both a financial commitment and behavioral promise. Agreeing to the conditions of bail means paying (or promising to pay) a certain sum of money in addition to following the rules set out by the justice system. Commonly, your friend will need to agree to show up for later court dates, stay out of trouble and not get arrested again, not have weapons, etc. in order to get bail.
What to know about bail bonding companies – Almost always located near a jail or the courthouse, bail bonding companies serve as the "middle man". They are usually familiar with the system, jail personnel, and the bail process in the local area. Always contact a company that handles bail in the same area that your friend is being held. Once you pay the bonding agent a fee, they will bail your loved one out. The fee is nowhere near as expensive as the bail the court is charging. Instead, you will pay the bonding company a small percentage, say 10%, of the bail price. You can find out how much you will need to pay by phoning a bail bonding agent with some information.
Preparing to hire a bail bonding company – If you are to help your friend get bailed out of jail, you will need to find out where they are being held. You can usually find out all the information you need by phoning either the city or county jail facility. The bonding company needs to know the amount of the bail, the nature of the charges, and the amount of the full bail. Using this information, you will be quoted a price for the bail. If the bail bonding company charges a 10% fee, for example, and your friend's bail is $10,000, you will need to pay $1,000. In some cases, you might also need to come up with some collateral to gain the release, such as a vehicle title or a property deed. That collateral is refunded when your friend complies with the bail conditions. Call and speak to a bail bondsman today and find out for yourself how easy and quick the process can be.Share
