What You Need to Know

When you call the Express Bail Bonds, it will speed up the process if you have the information we need to complete the application. We will need:

  • the defendant's name, address, date of birth
  • the location of the rest
  • possible charges
  • amount of their bail (needed to determine the bond amount)

While it's important to have the information, if you are missing part of it, your bail bondsman can contact law enforcement and get all of the details. The bail bondsmen at Express Bail Bonds have a solid working relationship with both the police and the courts making it easy for them to get what they need with just a few phone calls.

Defendant/Co-Signer Responsibilities

Both defendants and co-signers have responsibilities they must agree to before a bond can be posted. Co-signers must agree to be fully accountable for the entire bond amount if the defendant does not appear in court or the court orders the bond to be forfeited. They must also agree to maintain contact with the defendant while they are out on bond. If the defendant begins to think that the defendant may not appear in court as requested, they can choose to have the bond revoked. This means they will no longer be responsible for the bond and the defendant will be returned to jail until the case is resolved.

For the defendant, their main responsibility includes appearing in court whenever they have a hearing on the docket. It's also important that they do not receive any additional charges or violate any laws while they are out on bond. This could result in a bench warrant being filed and their bond being revoked. A defendant must also remain within the jurisdiction of the court. If their charge was drug-related, they may have to submit to random drug tests. When weapons are involved, the defendant may have to turn over their weapons to the authorities until their bond is released at the end of the court case.

How You Can Help Yourself

There are several things you can do to help yourself or a loved one if an arrest occurs. First, call Express Bail Bonds and find out how you will need to secure the application's 15% premium that is required by the state of Nevada. You can pay for the bond premium in a variety of ways. Express Bail Bonds will take cash, check, money orders, credit cards or property. If any tangible property is offered, it must be owned free and clear of any liens or title loans. It must also have a value that is one and a half times greater than the value of the bond.

Another thing to remember is that although posting a bond is relatively quick and easy, it is a process and may take a little time once the co-signer has finished their part. The bail bondsman must go to the jail and post the bond. (An Express Bail Bondsman can go anywhere in the state of Nevada to post a bond.) Once the bond has been posted, the wait begins. It takes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours for the booking process to be complete and sometimes longer for the release process (for 2 to 8 hours). This will depend on how busy the jail is and how many people are working.
