4 Questions you Should Ask During Your Bail Bonds Consultation

Happy’s Bail Bonds in Bakersfield wants to make sure you’re one hundred percent comfortable using us for your bail bonds needs. That’s why we set things up so that you can have a free consultation no matter what time of the day or night it is. This consultation is your opportunity to speak to one of our highly experienced bail bond experts and learn everything there is to know about Absolute as well as the California bail bonds program. 

There’s just one problem. While we’ve created a great way to get in touch with us, we’ve realized that some of our clients don’t realize that they should use the consultation as an opportunity to get all of their questions answered.

There are a few questions that we think everyone should ask during their consultation.

How Much will the Bail Bond Cost?

Because everyone will require a different size bail bond from us we aren’t able to set a one-size-fits-all fee. Instead, we’ve arranged things so that each person owes 10% of the bail bond they require. We have created a 20% discount for veterans, clients who have hired a personal attorney, AARP members, and union members.

What Conditions are Connected to the Bail Bond?

We don’t attach many conditions to our bail bonds. The only condition we have is that you agree to report to all of your mandatory court hearings. Missing a single court hearing will result in our forfeiting your bail bond. 
While we don’t put many conditions on your bail, the courts might. Common restrictions include having a curfew, avoiding certain people, not leaving the zip code, and not engaging in any criminal activity while you’re out on bail.

Do You Need a Co-Signer?

Several factors influence whether you need a co-signer. These things include:

• Your criminal history
• Your community ties
• How large a bail bond you require
• Your personal assets
• Whether you can pay the entire 10% or need a payment plan
• How severe the charges you face are
• The stipulations connected to your bail

The good news is that by the end of your consultation, our bail bond expert will be able to tell you if you can sign for the bail bond on your own or if you need a co-signer.

Will you Have to Sign Over Your Home to Secure a Bail Bond?

Once again, there is no cut and dry answer for whether you’ll have to sign over some of your personal assets before we’ll write a bail bond for you. If you require a large bail bond or if we consider you a flight risk, there’s a chance we will ask for you to use something as collateral.
