A bondsman understands the system so well that they can gather the information needed, fill out the paperwork, and pay bail in a fraction of the time that it might take you.
A Bail Bondsman Can Make Bond Affordable
Bail amounts have grown dramatically over the years. While the idea of bail was created in order to allow people to continue to live their lives while they await trial, modern bail costs can be so large that only the wealthiest people could afford to pay bail out of pocket.
A bail bondsman will pay the full amount of bail in exchange for a small fee, called a premium, and collateral. As long as the defendant shows up to their court date, the bail is returned to the bondsman and all you had to pay was a small percentage of the total bail. Typically, the premium amount is around 10 percent of the overall bail cost.
At ASAP Bail Bonds, we believe that it is important for people to be able to work and see their family before their trial date. After all, in America, one is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Spending months in jail does not feel like a presumption of innocence to us.
