It can be an extremely difficult and traumatizing experience for you when someone close to you is arrested. It might be a close friend or relative. But the first and the most important thing that you need to do is secure a bail.

The bail amount is a surety that you pay to get the defendant out of jail and it is ascertained by the crime committed by the person. It differs for different crimes and in some cases can be a substantially huge amount.

If you are unable to provide that bail amount, you can opt for bail bond services. A bail bond agency will require a written agreement signed by the arrested person assuring that he will appear in court whenever there is a hearing. If he skips bail or fails to appear in court, then the bond will be cancelled and the person will arrested immediately.

The process

The bail bond will require a co-signor along with the defendant who will have to make arrangements for security collateral. If the defendant skips bail, then the co-signor will have to pay the bail amount to the court.

The bail bond agent will charge a percentage of the bail amount for his services. Usually, it is 10% of the bail amount but can be higher or lower in different counties. The charges will further increase if the arrested person flees. Then the co-signor will have to bear all the expenses incurred while attempting to arrest the fugitive and get him back.

Unlike earlier times when you had to get in touch with a bail bonds agent via a court, now you can use online bail bond services. There are several companies that provide these services online. You can get in touch with these companies at any time of the day and you will get a bail bondsman instantly.
