Words like economics, politics, taxes, and bonds, are all extremely boring. Seeing all those words together can make the most energetic person yawn. Not only are all those words boring, but they also involve complicated thoughts and ideas. Economics, and politics were briefly touched on in school while taxes and bonds are completely foreign to most of us. Visalia Bail Bonds can’t completely explain taxes, but we can definitely explain bonds.
Bail is a complicated concept at times. Especially, when you’re already stressed over the fact that your loved one has been arrested. When a person gets arrested they have to wait until their court date to appear in front of a judge. Until then, they aren’t sentenced or stuck in jail. The judge will either decide the bail amount or dismiss the case. This is where Visalia Bail Bonds steps into to help you out.
Visalia Bail Bonds will be able to bond out your loved one. By California state law, we must charge you at least 10% of the bail to bond out your loved one. For example, if the bail is set at $50,000, we will only charge you 10% of that, which is $5,000. The 10% that you pay us goes towards the legal fees and costs of bonding out your loved one. You do not get this money back.
We may ask for collateral for a bond. Don’t worry, it’s not a bad thing. The reason for needing collateral varies, usually it’s when the bail amount is incredibly high. The collateral helps insure that your loved one appears in court or else the collateral is lost.
After all the paperwork is taken care of, the bail agent will then post the bond. Now we have to wait for the jail to release your loved one. This can be as short as a few hours, or take a whole day. It all depends on the jail where your loved one is being held. Once we post the bond we cannot control how much time it will take the jail to release your loved one.
