Obviously the bondsman will want to know all of your private details. What are the charges? Do you have an occupation? Do you have any assets? Essentially, the bail bond firm is trying to decideare you worthy of getting your bond paid?
You pay the bail bond company
If both the bail bondsman and you feel like this is a decent fit, then you will have to sign the paperwork and pay for their amenities. Usually, the amount that is paid is about ten percent of the bail sum set by the court. This sum is not an amount that is set by the bailsman. Rather, this amount is set by the state.
The paperwork is signed
When you buy a bail bond, you will have to sign some forms. The first form essentially is an agreement between the bail establishment and individual paying the fees saying that they are both accountable for making certain that the defendant will arrive at court. The last form is signed by the bail signer that specifies that they know that they are accountable for getting the defendant to court.
Bail is posted
Once the paperwork is signed and the dues are paid, your bail will be posted in a matter of some hours. The bailsman will bring the money to anyplace you are being detained and you will be released until your court date. Selecting the right bond company is this very important for your freedom while awaiting trial.
