Applying for a bail bond is a quick and simple process, but there is no room for error. A bail bond can just as easily be revoked as it is granted, and obviously, no one wants that.
Here are 3 important tips to follow when getting a bail bond:
- Hire a bail bonds agent and company in good standing. Look into the services they offer, what they charge, and their reputation. You want someone who is not just doing this for a paycheck, but someone who will be a reliable, supportive resource and be on your team to help you no matter what.
- Know the exact contact information, address and phone number, of the defendant. The bail bond company and the court will want this information when they need to contact the defendant. Putting down a false address or phone number, knowingly or unknowingly, can delay processing of paperwork and release. It can also lead to a revoked bail bond.
- Honor all the terms and conditions of your bail bond. This means showing up on time for all court appointments, obeying any travel and curfew instructions, making all bail bond payments on time, and attending counseling sessions, if the judge orders them. Just one instance of neglect can cause your co-signer to permanently lose his or her pledged collateral and you will be re-arrested and held without bail.
