When someone you know is in jail or you are the person incarcerated, you will likely try to determine the best way to get released. Bail secures your release from jail until you’re supposed to go to court. First, you need to be patient so that your bondsman can carefully prepare the paperwork for your release. Ask lots of questions. When is the court date? How much is the bail amount? What does a cosigner have to agree to? You want to be as informed as possible to avoid additional problems. Here are some bail bond tips and advice to help you get started.
Talk to a few different agencies to get a better idea for the reputation of the bondsmen who work for the company. Ask questions about the types of collateral that they accept. Have collateral ready just in case so that you can quickly post bail once you find an agency. When you give the bondsman your information, try to be patient while the agent contacts the jail to confirm the details. Sometimes additional contact with court clerks is necessary to get all required information to post a bond. Have collateral ready in the form of cash, a credit or debit card, or a title to personal property to secure the bond.
