A bail bond is basically what you purchase to get out of jail if you cannot afford to pay the bail set against you on your own. This type of surety bond is required by the federal government for all those accused of crimes as a way to ensure you do not skip out on bail, or leave town without facing trial. Bail is refundable if you pay in full. Bail must be paid if you want to get out of jail. That being said, depending on the type of crime that you are accused of, you may be denied bail if the judge deems you a flight risk.
A local bail bondsman is someone who offers bail bonds to those who are in jail and wish to get out before their court date. This is understandable; some court proceedings take weeks or months to resolve, and who wants to sit in jail during that time? A local bail bondsman offers you the chance to pay a portion of the bail set against you, while they cover the rest.
When you or a loved one contact a local bail bondsman, they will ask you some pertinent questions about the arrest, including the jail you or your loved one is in, and what crime you are accused of. Our 24-hour local bail bondsmen can help anytime you need it. When you contract with a local bail bondsman, you pay a small percentage of the bail amount set against you (this is usually 10%). The local bail bondsman pays the rest for you. In return for this service, you agree to show up to all of your court dates. If you miss a court date, a warrant can be set against you, and you lose the bail money on behalf of the bail bondsman. This is where a bounty hunter may be contracted if you leave town.
The fee you pay a local bail bondsman is non-refundable. This is what we charge for our services and covers our expenses and fees. In addition, we also offer free warrant checks and help throughout the bail bond process. When you partner with ASAP Bail Bonds in the metro-Atlanta area, you'll get assistance during this difficult time.
A bail hearing is where your case will be presented before a local judge and the bail amount will be set. Here, the judge will look at your criminal history, the facts of the case, and the nature of your crimes. They will also consider whether you yourself pose a threat to society if granted bail. All of this will be taken into consideration when they set the bail amount. That being said, there are standard bail amounts known as schedules that are set that can be paid before your bail bond hearing. This allows you to get out of jail sooner.
A recognizance bond is one that allows you to skip a bail fee altogether. This is where you will sign a written agreement to abide by terms set by the court and to show up to all of your court hearings. A criminal defense attorney usually negotiates these.
There are many reasons to use a local bail bondsman. First, you get an affordable bail bond. Sometimes, bail bonds can run into the thousands of dollars, which many people simply do not have. Instead, you can pay us a mere fraction of that cost and be out of jail with your family and loved ones. Next, you are getting expert advice. With decades of experience in the bail bond business, our local bail bondsman can help you navigate these troubled waters and get you the help you need, such as the recommendations of a good criminal defense lawyer. Finally, you are getting someone who cares about you as a person. We offer you rides to and from your court dates and do our best to support you throughout the legal process. We understand that this can be a scary time, which is why we're here to help. Contact ASAP Bail Bonds today.
