YOU’VE BEEN ARRESTED. NOW WHAT?
Being arrested can be extremely scary — both for you and your loved ones. After the initial shock of it all and your booking, what do you do?
You will have to remain in jail until your bail hearing. At your bail hearing, your bail will be set. Bail can vary based on the charges filed against you and your past arrest history. The point of bail is to be sufficiently high enough to ensure you will show up for your court date. If you can’t make bail you have a couple of options. One, you can wait in jail until your trial and you are hopefully exonerated of all charges. Or, you can borrow the bail money from a friend or relative. Or, you can contact a bail agent, or bail bondsman to post the bail for you.
Advanced Bail Bonding in Covington is a bail bond company that can help you get out of jail while you await trial by helping you to post bail. You will pay only 10% of the bail amount set as a fee to us. You may also have to put up collateral as well. We then post a surety bond on your behalf. Contact us today to learn more!
HOW DO BAIL BONDS WORK?
YOUR GUIDE FOR THE BAIL BONDS PROCESS
You may have heard of bail bonds before, but you might not know exactly how the process works. We get it — the concept can be confusing and you may have questions about using a bail bonds service or if it’s right for you or your loved one. Here at Advanced Bail Bonding, our team makes the bail bonds process as simple and as straightforward as possible. You’ll find the typical order of events listed below:
- You or your loved one gets arrested.
- After being processed and booked at a local jail, a judge reviews the case in order to set a bail amount. Factors such as you or your loved ones standing in the community, criminal history, and the charges pending are used to determine what the bail amount should be.
- If you have the full amount needed for bail, you can post bail so that you or your loved one is released from jail right away. However, most people don’t have the full amount available. This is when you’d call your local bail bondsman.
- Once you call us, we begin the bail bonds process for you. You are then only responsible for 10% of the total bail amount. This is a fee that you will not get back. We, in turn, post a surety bond, ensuring you show up for court.
- You or your loved one will then be released from jail so you can prepare for the upcoming court date.
