How can I get a bail bond?
You can get a bail bond through the following process:
Contact a bail bond company- Since you are in jail, ask your lawyer, family member or friend to contact a bail bond company for you.
Bail Bond Company will assess your situation- The bail bond company will assess your personal details such as what are the charges, whether you have a job and/or any assets. This is done to determine if you are a flight risk.
Pay the Bail Bond Company- If you and the bail bondsman agree on the same terms, you will have to sign paperwork and pay for their services.
Sign the paperwork- After you purchase a bail bond, you will be required to sign a few forms such as the Bail Bond Agreement and a Notice to the Indemnitor.
Bail is Posted- Once you sign the paperwork and pay the fees, your bail will be posted in a few hours.
