Communicating With Your Bail Bond Agent

Communicating With Your Bail Bond Agent

Communicating With Your Bail Bond Agent

It is no secret that communication is the secret to success. It is also a key component to successfully cultivating a harmonious relationship between yourself and your bail bondsman. Early in your relationship, there are a few key things you need to discuss with the representative who is helping secure your release from jail.

How Much Does The Bail Bond Ultimately Cost?

The court determines how much bail you’ll have to pay before you can walk out of jail. If you bail yourself out, you pay the entire amount which the court returns to you once you’re case has made it through the entire legal process.

If you require a bail bond company such as David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Porterville, you pay us 10% of the total amount. We kick in 90%. Once the case is concluded, we get 100% of the money back.

This is the standard process. Each bail bond company has its unique twist which is why you must discuss exactly how much money you must provide and how much the bail company supplies. Make sure both amounts are clearly stated in your contract.

In addition to finding out how much bail is going to cost you, take time to learn if you need to have a co-signer if you have to sign over any assets and if you need to provide the bail bond company with information about your employer.

How Long Will It Be Before You’re Allowed To Walk Out Of Jail?

Some people assume that as soon as they contact a bail bondsman, they will get out of jail. That’s not usually the case. Several factors influence how much time it will take for the bail bondsman to procure your release.

Influencing factors include:

  • How long it takes you to come up with your share of the bail.
  • The bail bondsman’s current availability and schedule.
  • How long it takes the bail bondsman to fill out the required paperwork.

Knowing how long it will likely take the bail bondsman allows you to arrange for things like transportation to your home, care for your kids and when you can return to your job.

How Long Has The Bail Bondsman Been Active In The Area?

It is in your best interest to get a little information about the bail bondsman you’re working with. There are many stories about people who thought they were getting bailed out of jail only to learn that the person they were dealing with wasn’t a bail bondsman but actually a con artist.

Knowing how long they’ve been working in the area goes a long way towards confirming that you’re working with a legitimate bail bond company that can get you out of jail.

Knowing what questions you should ask your bail bondsman helps clear up a lot of communication problems and helps you to keep the relationship pleasant and business-like rather than stressful.

Preparing To Be Bailed Out Of Jail

Preparing To Be Bailed Out Of Jail

Preparing To Be Bailed Out Of Jail

No one wants to sit in jail any longer than absolutely necessary. Paying bail is the best way to get yourself released from jail so that you can start picking up the pieces of your life while also preparing your defense. In some cases, bail is determined by the charges filed against you. In other situations, you’ll have to appear before a judge who determines the amount of bail required for your release.

It is in your best interest to prepare yourself for the bail hearing.

Is A Bail Hearing Necessary?

Procedural shows give the impression that nearly every person who is arrested must go through a bail hearing. The truth is that in many cases, a bail hearing isn’t required. In a vast majority of cases, state and local laws already exist which determine how much your bail will be. The amount is disclosed shortly after the formal charges are filed.

Contact A Lawyer Before Your Bail Hearing

A bail hearing isn’t nearly as important as your future court dates are, but that doesn’t mean you should treat it lightly. When you appear in the courtroom, you want to appear polished, knowledgeable of the law and in control. Most importantly, you need good legal representation. It doesn’t matter if it’s a lawyer you’ve hired yourself or one the court has appointed. You want to have a lawyer beside you during the bail hearing. They will do everything in their power to convince the judge that you’re trustworthy, that you’ll make all of your future court dates, and that you shouldn’t be hit with an obscenely high bail.

Go To Court

Prior to the bail hearing, your lawyer should be familiar with the current charges you’re dealing with, your personal history and ties to the community, and if you already have a criminal record. This is the information they need to have to help you secure the lowest possible bail. Make sure you’re completely honest. Failing to disclose information to your lawyer could not only result in them being blindsided during your bail hearing but also come back to bite you in later court appearances.

After the judge listens to both sides of the case and reviews the charges, they’ll determine your bail.

Secure Your Bail

The great thing about bail is that you’re not responsible for the entire amount. You only must come up with 10% of it. If you’re lucky, you already have enough or are able to borrow some from your friends and family. If you can’t come up with the amount, you’ll have to contact David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Porterville.

We’re available 24/7 and will carefully review your case. Based on what we learn, we’ll determine if we’re confident that you’ll make all of your court appearances. If we think you will, we’ll cover your entire bail. In some cases, we do require you to have a co-signer.

When you find yourself in need of bail money, contact David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Porterville. Call us at 1-866-485-6356 or 661-326-0608 or click Talk To An Agent Now to chat. Consultation is FREE!

The Basics Of Bail

The Basics Of Bail

The Basics Of Bail

Bail is a concept that many people know about, but are pretty unfamiliar with. Everyone has seen some TV or movie character post bail at least once in their life. However, bail isn’t always portrayed accurately on the silver screen. This makes it so most people don’t know what to expect when they find themselves needing to bail a friend or family member out of jail.

For those who may not know, bail is the amount of money that a court requires to be paid for a person to be released from jail while they await their trial. The amount of the bail varies from case to case and is largely dependent on the crime that the person has been accused of. Once this amount has been paid, the person will be released from custody and is expected to show up for their court case.

The biggest problem that people have with bail is the cost. Even the cheapest bail amounts are several thousand dollars. Most people don’t have that kind of money to spare. This is where bail bonds come in to play. Here in California, bail bonds only cost 10% of the bail that they are for. If someone’s bail is set at $20,000, then their bail bond will only cost $2,000.

Getting a bail bond does the same thing as paying for the bail. However, instead of paying the jail directly, a person is paying someone else to pay for the bail for them. Aside from being cheaper than posting the bail on your own, when you come to David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Porterville, you get the guidance of a professional bail agent.

Here are some of the services we provide:

  • FREE Consultation
  • 20% Discount
  • Phone approvals
  • 0% Interest Payment Plans
  • No Hidden Fees
  • No Collateral with Working Co-Signer

Once a person is out on bail, they get to go back to living their normal life. They can go to work and visit with friends and family members while still going to court for their trial. Getting bailed out of jail can make the whole trial easier for people. It gets even easier when you come to David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Porterville for bail help. Call us today! We promise, we won’t let you down.

Questions About Bail Bond Payments

Questions About Bail Bond Payments

Questions About Bail Bond Payments

When it comes to bailing someone out of jail, most people have a lot of questions. Here at David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Porterville, we have heard, and answered, all sorts of questions. The part of bail that causes the most concern amongst our clients, is paying for it. People have a lot of questions relating to paying for a bail bond, and so we’ve compiled a list of those questions and their answers to make things easier for you.

  • How much does a bail bond cost?
    How much a bail bond costs is dependent on how much your loved one’s bail is set at. Our bail bonds cost 10% of the bail they are for. This means that a $20,000 bail will have a $2,000 bail bond.
  • Are there any discounts?
    Yes, we do offer discounts for qualified clients. If you or a co-signer for the bail bond is a member of the military, a member of AARP, a union member, owns a home, or has a private attorney, then you can get 20% off the price of the bail bond.
  • How do I make payments?
    We accept a number of different payment options to make paying for the bail bond easier. We accept cash, checks, credit cards, Western Union money transfers, E-checks, and Wells Fargo Business Account deposits. These payments can be made in person, online, over the phone, or even through the mail in some instances.
  • How much do I have to pay upfront?
    That is dependent on how big the bail is, and who the co-signers for the bail bond are. A smaller bail can lead to smaller monthly and down payments. Having good co-signers is another way to shrink the size of the payments.
  • How much is interest?
    0%. We do not charge interest on our bail bonds.
  • Do I need collateral?
    In most cases, all we need for collateral is the signature of a working co-signer. If we have that, most times we won’t need any other type of collateral.
  • What happens if I miss a payment?
    We understand that life can get difficult at times, and so a missed payment is bound to happen. If you know in advanced that you are going to miss a payment, talk to one of our agents. We will be more than willing to work with you.
