How Do Bail Bonds Work?
A loved one has been put in jail. What do you do next?
You’ve learned that someone you care about has been arrested — what do you do? The cost of bail is too high for most people to afford. Fortunately, you have another option: bail bond services.
With a bail bond from ASAP Bail Bonds, you can secure the release of your loved one without the burden of costly bail. Instead, we will post bail on your loved one’s behalf. All you have to worry about is our premium, which our team is dedicated to keeping affordable for all Georgia residents.
ASAP Bail Bonds is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so don’t hesitate to give us a call and start the bail process!
Our team will need some basic information to start with so we can quickly secure your loved one’s release from jail. Some questions we may ask you include:
- What is the arrested person’s full name and date of birth?
- What is the arrested person’s address and employment status?
- What is the name and location of the court setting bail?
- What is the arrested person’s case number?
- What is the name of the jail where the arrested person is being held?
- What is your name, contact information, and financial information, if you are the one applying for the bail bond?
Once a member of our team has talked to you, we’ll handle it from there! We’ll call the jail to get any more information we need. We’ll work with you on the financial agreements and post bail on your behalf, handling all the paperwork so you don’t have to.
Once everything is set, your loved one will be freed! Our bail bonds team will tell you when to go pick up the defendant, and they can prepare for their trial at home, surrounded by supportive friends and family.
When you work with ASAP Bail Bonds, we won’t abandon you after bail has been posted and your loved one has been freed. We work with you throughout the process all the way up until the trial to help ensure things go smoothly! We will explain the legal proceedings so the defendant can successfully make it to trial.
If the defendant appears on trial day, the amount of bond will be credited back to ASAP Bail Bonds. You or the defendant will only be responsible for our affordable premium and any additional expenses incurred while serving the defendant.
If the defendant does not appear for trial, or they are late, then the bail bond is forfeited to the court. Our bonding company will be charged for the bail, which means we will need to collect the full amount from the defendant or whoever applied for the bail bond. There is no second chance for bail if the defendant is apprehended again after this point.
ASAP Bail Bonds is Georgia’s premier bail bond service because we take the time to inform our clients about the process while also offering great premium prices. Contact us today to find out how we can help you or a loved one get out of jail.
