What Does a Bail Bonds Man Do?
A bail bonds man will handle the details of posting bail for a small fee. In Nevada, that fee is set by law at 15%. When a judge grants bail, it means that a sum of money (or collateral) must be put forward as insurance that the accused will attend all court hearings as required. This is the condition an accused must meet in these circumstances to be released from jail in advance of the trial. There is some paperwork to be done as part of the bail process, and an experienced bail bonds man can usually do it in less than half an hour.
The bail bonds man from 911 Bail Bonds will also help ensure that the accused attends court on the required dates. In some cases, a bail bonds man will be authorized to arrest an accused who has failed to show up for court. The staff at 911 Bail Bonds are happy to explain the process in more detail to you and to talk you through exactly what we do and why. Our goal is to have all bail conditions met so the bail money is returned to the person who paid it.
