03 Apr How Does a Bail Bond Work?
Bail is a topic that many people know off but aren’t very familiar with it. When it comes to bail, most people only know what they’ve seen on TV. They know that if they pay a set amount of money they can get their loved one out, but they don’t know exactly why or how much. This makes it so that when a loved one gets arrested, people don’t know how to help. Luckily, Happy’s Bail Bonds in Bakersfield is here to help.
For starters, the price of the bail is determined by the case judge. Only he or she can alter the bail price. The amount of the bail is determined based on the crime the person is accused of, their criminal record, and the likelihood of the person running if released. Once that is determined, a bail agent is required by state law to charge 10% of that price for a bail bond.
When you talk to a bail agent at Happy’s Bail Bonds in Bakersfield, our bail agents will walk you through the paperwork and answer your questions. Our bonds only cost 10% of the bail they are for, which means a bail bond for a $20,000 bail will only cost $2,000. In addition to this, we provide all of our clients with personalized payment plans that divide up the cost of the bail bond over several months to make it more affordable.
Once all of the paperwork is filled out and signed, and the first payment is received, we will send one of our bail agents to the jail. Our agent will secure your loved one’s release from jail. Depending on the size of the jail, this can take anywhere from a few hours to a day.
