Emergency Bail Bond Loans Information
Someone in your family arrested, and you don’t think you can come up with the bail payment? Before you call a bail bondsman, you need to know how much money you need for bail. It’s always best to be upfront and honest with the bondsman when you call about getting someone out of jail.
Please read these tips on securing emergency bail bond loans to get out of local or county jail:
When you speak with the defendant or the officer in charge, ask these questions:
- Ask if there is more than one bond, if so make a list of the amounts
- Ask the bond amount of each charge
- Ask if the bond is cash or surety or if a 10% option is available
- If surety is available find out the amount
- Ask if there are any fines and/or court costs that must be paid in addition to the bonds*
- Ask if there are any “jail fees” that are owed. In many states, these fees exist. These are called “booking fees” or “warrant fees” and must be paid in cash at the time you post bail**
- How Much Money Will You Need? Total all of the surety bonds needed for your loved one’s release.
The price for bail bonds is set by state and/or county law and depending on the state you are in, you will usually need between 10% and 20% of the total surety bonds amount. If you find that you cannot raise all of the money at one time for bail, don’t worry, most bail bonds companies have the ability to take payments.
If the bondsman doesn’t take payments or is unable to setup a bail loans repayment plan you can apply for emergency bail bond loans with any payday loan or online loan website. Most bondsmen will work with you to find the best bail bond loans payment plan possible for your circumstances.
