Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the temporary release of an accused from jail with the condition that he or she lodges money as a guarantee that he or she will appear before the court at the trial date. To post bail, the defendant or his family/friends can get in touch with the court to find out the type of bond, the amount of the bond, and where to pay it. In some cases, the defendant is unable to pay the amount required by the court. A bondsman can be hired to act as a surety. He will be the one to guarantee payment of the bail should the defendant fail to meet the conditions the court has set. The bondsman typically charges 10% of the bail amount. Depending on the risk factors, the bondsman may also require the defendant to put down collateral equal to the remaining bail amount.

These people are absolutely amazing. They did everything in a timely manner, answered all my questions I had, and were so fun and helped through the rough time. If you need your loved one out I would pick them. They were even willing to help me with a payment plan.
