Understanding the Process
The bail bonds process isn't difficult to understand but it's easy to be overwhelmed as you work through the process. The first step in the process comes with the call informing you of the arrest. As soon as we find out some necessary information, the paperwork must be filled out. It paperwork takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. The next step is securing the bond by paying the 15% state-mandated fee. The premium isn't negotiable and won't be refunded.
Once the fees have been paid and everything is approved, we will head to the jail to post the bond and pick up the defendant. As soon as the defendant is allowed to leave, the bail bonds agent will go over all of the details of their case. It's important that both the everyone knows what is going on with the case. Both parties must understand their rights and responsibilities.
Rights and Responsibilities
Both the co-signer and the defendant have obligations. According to the 8thAmendment of the United States Constitution, every person has the right to post bond and be released from jail until their court date. This is also a privilege that can also be taken away if it is abused. Posting bond gives the defendant an opportunity to return to work, hire an attorney, and fulfill their financial obligations to their family. In return, they must agree to appear in court on time, not receive any more charges, remain within the jurisdiction of the court and report any changes of employment or address to the court. They are also required to check in with their bail bonds agent on a regular basis.
As a co-signer, you become responsible for the defendant and promise that they will comply with the demands of the court. If they don't, you may eventually become liable for the full amount of the bond. If their bond is forfeited due to their absence from court, you will have to pay the entire bond amount in full, to the court upon demand. If you have used collateral to secure the bond, it will be sold and the proceeds used to pay off your debt to the court. Any money that is left over will be returned to you after additional court fees and fines.
