Greg Padilla from Greg Padilla Bail Bonds explains how bail bonds work.
Bail bonds are comparable to loans. The bail bond provider is going to send a bail bondman out to your home to make sure that your bail has been paid in full. The bail bond firm sends the bail bondsman. The amount of bail to bail bond firms is typically around 10% higher.
Bail bond workers cannot search for jail clients. The lawyer you are working with or somebody you trust has to contact an agency that deals in bail bonds to set up a bail bond.
Bail bonds are viewed by courts as insurance coverage. One of the main responsibilities of the bail bonds company’s job is to make certain that you are present for the court date. The bail bond company can be liable for a significant amount of loss when you do not attend court appearances. The bail bond might require a co-signer, such as the parent who helps make sure that you’re able show up on any court appearances.
