What are the Benefits of Posting Bail

When you learn about a loved one’s arrest, it can feel like disaster is in the air. You might think that there is nothing you could possibly do to help, but you would be wrong. You help by posting your friend or family member’s bail.

By posting your loved one’s bail, you are enabling him or her to return to their normal life. Your loved one will be able to continue to work and earn an income. This will allow your loved one to support his or her family and keep their job.

Another benefit of bailing out of jail is being able to prepare better for the trial. Once out of jail, meeting with a lawyer becomes easier, thus making it easier to build a solid defense...

About the Bail Reform Legislation

Bail is when a defendant, who has been charged with a crime but has not yet been found innocent or guilty through their trial, pays a certain amount of money to be released from jail. This allows the person to return home to live and engage in an otherwise normal routine like going to work and spending time with family and friends.

Bail exists because it is unfair to keep defendants in jail for the duration of their trial which can be days, weeks, or even months, especially when we do not know if they are actually guilty. However, some believe it is unfair for defendants who cannot be released simply because they cannot afford to pay their bail.

Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Rand Paul co-authored a new bill that to change how defendants are released...

Celebrities Have to Pay for Bail Too

Celebrities are frequently given the red carpet treatment almost anywhere they go, for almost everything they do. They get special VIP access and treatment that the public never gets to experience. For all the glitz and glam, it sure seems beneficial to have a well-known name and face.

Occasionally, celebrities do not get special treatment. In fact, having star-status brings them more attention than they want. For example, being a celebrity and having a run-in with the law. Celebrities do not get away if they break the law. Just like any other person who broke the law, a celebrity must face the same legal proceedings and possible consequences as everyone else...

How Can a Defendant Get Out of Jail?

Someone who is arrested has been accused of a crime. They are legally considered innocent until proven guilty in court, but their trial in court may not happen for some time after their arrest. What happens to the accused during this time? It is not fair to keep the accused in custody unless they are considered danger to the community, or they are likely to flee before their trial. If the defendant is deemed safe, he or she has the opportunity to post bail and be released from custody.

A defendant can post bail by paying the entire bail by him or herself, or with the help of loved ones. They will need to turn over 100% of the bail cost before they can actually be released, but this is refundable later on as long as they show up for their scheduled court date.

The second way a defendant ...

Learn about Bail Bonds First

Whoever said that bail bonds are sketchy and for the lower class was wrong. Bail bonds are just as legitimate and equal as cash bail. Of course, there are different contingencies and requirements for both, but they both get the job done. In fact, even rich people and celebrities use bail bonds rather than cash bail.

Truth be told, bail bonds are the more common method to posting bail. Reasons more people choose bail bonds can be that they like the idea of having a professional bail agent assisting them through the entire process. They want the payment plan that bail bonds come with. They would rather pay 10% of the bail, rather than 100% it...

Why Do You Get Your Money Back for Bail, but Not Bail Bonds?

south-beach-bailbonds3

Some people who have an understanding of bail and the bail process, know that when you pay for someone’s bail, you get the money back after the defendant’s trial is over. So often times, they wonder why they do not get their money back after bailing someone out with a bail bond.

The difference, is that when someone gets a bail bond, they are not paying for the bail bond directly. When someone hires a bail agent, they are paying the bail agent to put up the money for the bail. This means that they are paying for the bail agent’s services.

In the case of bail bonds, the bail agent is paying the full amount of the bail to the court, and you are paying the bail agent for doing that...

Did You Know There Is a Difference Between Bail and Bail Bonds?

sea-cliff-bailbonds3

Many people do not realize that there is actually a difference between bail and bail bonds. The difference between the 2 can equal out to a lot of money.

Bail is determined by a judge, and it is the amount of money that needs to be paid in order for someone to be released from jail. Bail is usually set in the price range of several thousand dollars. Bail also needs to be paid in full with cash all at once, in order for the person to be released from jail. Most people do not have thousands of dollars just lying around, which is why it is hard for many people to bail their loved ones out all on their own.

It was due to those difficult conditions, that bail bonds came into existence.

Bail Bonds are determined off the price of the bail and are different from state to state...
