How does a bail bond work?

When an individual stands accused of a crime, they will be arrested and taken to the local jail. Once they have been processed, they will have the opportunity to be bailed out. That’s when you call us. The job of a bail bondsman is to ensure that the accused person makes it to his or her court dates. So, once a bond has been posted, the bond agency basically acts on behalf of the accused. For us to agree to represent the accused, either a payment plan must be created, or in some cases, collateral may need to be staked.

How do bond payments work?

The amount of money needed for bond is set by a judge. The amount determines whether payment is enough or if collateral is necessary. Collateral can be staked in the form of personal effects or in the form of real estate. Jewelry, a home, or even personal credit. There are many options from which to choose, based on the assets of the person putting up the collateral. Don’t worry—as long as terms of bond are met, your property is at no risk of being seized. Having something at stake simply ensures that the bond amount will be paid back in full to the agency. Once the individual has appeared at their court dates, the agency has fulfilled its side of the deal. All that remains is finishing payments, then all terms of the bond have been reached.

What do I need to know before contacting Around the Clock Bail Bonds?

Before Around the Clock Bail Bonds can begin the bail process, there are a few quick pieces of information we need from you. The place of incarceration, inmate name and number, and bail amount are all you need to know. This information makes it easy for the agency to contact the place of incarceration and post bail. After this, your friend or family member will be bailed out and released under the terms of bail. While on bail, there are some things that should be avoided to ensure continued release until the court date.

What things can break the terms of bail?

Primarily, the most important thing while out on bail is to make sure all court appearances are kept. Additionally, things like leaving the state or changing the address of the accused without notifying your bondsman can land the accused in deeper trouble. The easiest way to avoid breaking terms of bail is to stay out of trouble and stay in the state. Don’t try to run! This will only make things more difficult. If the terms of bond are not kept, you are at risk of losing any money you have paid to the agency, and any collateral you have staked.
