5 Benefits of Hiring A Bail Bond Service

17 January 2020 | 0 comments | Posted by Silvia Watson in Get Court

Why use bail bond services

The last thing anybody wants is to be on the wrong side when it comes to the long arm of the law. The judicial system can be a long and winding process and a costly one at that with many people not financially prepared for any legal cost or burdens they may incur.

While some may have rainy day fund or loving friends and family, they can rely on others need to look to external service providers to get the money to post bail.

In these cases, an individual may have to consider approaching a bail bond services provider.

What is a bail bond dealer?

First, let us start by defining a bond dealer. When an individual or a firm assists any defendant in getting out of jail by posting the court-mandated bail amount on behalf of the accused, such a service is termed as a bail bondsman or agent. Keep in mind that you will need to make a small payment or around 10% of the net bail amount as charges for the services rendered to you.

Why go for it?

Let us say, for example, that a loved one of yours or a friend/family member has got arrested. There might be some financial problem, which is making it difficult to make the payment for the bail amount. In such a case, all you need to do is pick up a phone and dial an expert service like your local bail bond office to post the bail amount for the defendant.

Now, we will look at the top five advantages of hiring a bail bond service.

1. To save money

Keep in mind that you will need to pay as low as 10% of the net bail amount as charges to the bail bond service. Yes, it can climb to 15%, depending on the state laws. However, you will still end up saving a significant amount. Most individuals end up taking out a line of credit or loan to pay the bail amount, which leads to debt. With a professional bail bond service, you can rest easy.

2. No more selling assets

As stated previously, desperate times call for drastic measures. There have been many instances where people have ended up selling property, valuables as well as assets to make up the bail amount. If you are looking to avoid jail time the intelligent way, then you should invest in an exert bail bind service the moment you get arrested.

3. Avoid financial scrutiny

Keep in mind that even if you can make the court-mandated fixed bail amount, there are strict laws and legislation that will apply. The court will look into your expenses and dealings to make sure that the bail amount gets posted using legal money. If you are looking to avoid the hassles of providing documents for the financial scrutiny, take the easy way out and contact a bail bond agent.

4. A better understanding of court procedures

If you are looking to handle the arrest all by yourself, keep in mind that it might get overwhelming for you. It is primarily because court procedures are all filled with jargon and technical language, which might prove to be a challenge to decipher. Secondly, you will already be working under tremendous mental strain. Therefore, it is crucial to work with a third –party expert who understands court procedure and language to guide you through the process.

5. Ensure complete confidentiality

If you are looking to maintain the sanctity of your personal life and keep the incident confidential, then it is imperative to work through the proper channels. If you hire an expert and professional bail bondsman, then you can be sure of the discretion.

Keep in mind these advantages of hiring a bail bondsman and make sure that you do the right thing if you get arrested.
