A Bonding Company You Can Trust

While there are many types of bonds available that will get you out of jail, the type of bonds that ASAP Bail Bonds offers is surety bonds, or bail bonds. The word "sure" in "surety" bonds says it all. When you can't afford a bail bond, you enter an agreement with a local bail bond agent who posts bail for you as a type of insurance to ensure you don't flee while awaiting trial. If you don't show up to court appearances, your bail bond agent is legally liable to forfeit the amount of money they posted on your behalf. Normally, this money is returned if you meet all of your court dates. This then could put the bail bond agent out of a lot of money, which is where bounty hunters come into play.
If you jump bail, a bail bond agent will hire a bounty hunter to find you and bring you in. The bail bond company has a certain amount of time to find you or for you to voluntarily show up before they lose their money for good. A lot of money can be at stake if you don't return, which is why bounty hunters are called in. These professionals are personal investigators who are experts at helping locate those who don't want to be found. The most prudent thing to do is to pay your bail and show up to court. That's the only way to have the charges cleared against you anyway.
While most people have a vague idea of what a bail agent does, most don't understand the full scope of their job. Currently, there are more than 14,000 bail bond agents in the United States. Most states require bail bond agents to be licensed and trained and require a bail bond agent to be at least 18 years old, be a U.S. citizen, have a clean criminal record, and have their surety insurance set up.
The day-to-day job of a bail bond agent involves a lot of paperwork, from collecting fees and signing documents for those who need a bail bond posted to the paperwork the court requires for loved ones to get out of jail. However, this is an overarching piece to a bail agent's day. Throughout the day, they field phone calls from potential and current customers and help those whom they have posted bail for remember their court dates. Some bail bond agents even drive their clients to and from court so they don't miss it. In sum, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes work that takes place in order for bail bond agents to ensure their clients' needs are taken care of. To learn more, call ASAP Bail Bonds today.
Without bail bond agents, many people would find themselves unable to post bail and would languor in jail. This causes many problems, such as financial losses, job losses, and personal losses within the family. In addition, when you are in jail, you have a very hard time preparing your defense. Communication with the outside world is limited, and you don't have access to resources such as the library or the internet where you can do your own research to help yourself get out of your situation. Plus, sitting in a very small, confined space for most of the day, unable to go anywhere or to do the things you want to do can not only be bad for your health, but it also can affect your mental health as well. Social isolation is never a good thing, and despair and depression are real threats when you are in jail.
Local bail bond agents fill the gap for those who cannot afford cash bail. The service they offer for a reasonable fee helps thousands of people every year have their freedom while they await trial. This sense of normalcy is what most people need when they are facing a situation that could be life-changing. Many people do not have friends or relatives to bail them out. Bail bond agents fill a dire need in a free country where people are presumed innocent until proven guilty by a court of law and where they should have the opportunity to be free until proven otherwise.
