Have questions about how bail bonds work? Around the Clock Bail Bonds of Winston Salem, Greensboro and Burlington has all the answers you need. We’ll start with what bail is, and what we need from you before we can begin the process.
How Bail Bonds Work
When someone is arrested for a crime, authorities will take that person to jail. After being processed, the individual will then be held in jail, or will have a chance to be bailed out. This is where our agency comes in. If it is decided an individual can be released on bail, the agency will put up a bond to guarantee that the person will appear at all court hearings. We will accept money or collateral for the bond from the person or a friend or relative. If the bail amount is relatively low, a payment plan may be enough. However, if the bail is high, staking collateral may be necessary. Collateral can range from personal property to a business or home. Some people opt to stake their credit in exchange for bail. Staking these things ensures that you will be committed to paying the bond amount back in full. This is how bail is made. The agency then acts for the individual to have them released from jail, and assumes legal custody of the accused until the court date.
What should I know before contacting Around the Clock Bail Bonds?
There are some basic facts that you should know, prior to contacting us. Simply the place of incarceration, the name and inmate number of the individual, and the bail amount are enough. This makes it easier for the bondsman to contact the jail and post bail swiftly. Time is of the essence! Don’t let your loved one spend more time behind bars than is necessary. Contact Around the Clock Bail Bonds as soon as news of incarceration arrives. At Around the Clock, our mission is to help you and your loved ones whenever we are needed.
What happens if the bond is not repaid, or the suspect does not appear in court?
Once the bail has been posted by the agency, the agency has taken responsibility for the defendant. It is the agency’s duty to ensure the defendant appears on time for his/her court date. If the defendant fails to appear, the agency then has the option to hire a bounty hunter to collect the defendant. It is always best to appear in court on the proper date. Doing things like leaving the state or changing an address without notification can also jeopardize the suspect’s freedom.
