A secured bond is when you go in front of the magistrate and they set your bail at a certain rate and you call a bail agent and pay the required percent of the bond that the agent is asking for. The bail agent can charge you a rate from 0% all the way to 15%. The agent has made a contract with their insurance company and the county in which they’ve bonded you out of that they’re legally responsible for the total bond that was set on you and that you’ll go to all of your court dates. The bail agent, client, and cosigner also have a contract saying that the client will attend all of their court dates. If the client bond is forfeited then the cosigner is responsible for the full amount of the bond.
After a person is arrested, the court will set an amount of bail that must be posted before they can be released. JBR services can help you determine the best options for making this payment. We accept payments via cash, debit, or credit card. If you need help financing a bond with a short term payment plan, we can provide you with affordable and flexible options with a 0% interest rate. Once payment is made, we will post the bond, and the person will be released from custody.
INFORMATION NEEDED TO POST BAIL
To bail someone out of jail, we will need to know their full name, the facility where they are being held, their booking number, the charges they are facing, and the amount of bail set by the court. If necessary, we can help you locate an inmate, and we can help look up other relevant information related to their arrest and determine the requirements that must be met to bail them out.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT AFTER POSTING BAIL?
After posting bail, a person will be released from custody. We provide check ins to make sure they are fully aware of any upcoming court dates. If a defendant fails to appear in court as required, we will locate them and return them to police custody.
