FAQ

What Should I Know Before I Contact A Bail Agent?
There is certain information that a bail agent will need in order to help you:

Where is the person in custody? (Make sure that you ask the person in custody where they are located including the city, state, and the name of jail).
What is the full name and booking number of person in jail? The bail agent will need this information in order to contact the jail. The bail agent can get the booking number for you if you forgot or if it was not available.
How much is the bail? The bail agent will get this information when they contact the jail if you do not have it. With the bail amount, the bail bondsman can tell you the amount it will cost to post a bond and requirements to get the person out of jail.

How Do I Get A Bail Bond?
There are four ways in which a person may be released from custody.

You can use a bondsman.
You can post cash for the full amount of the bond with the court or jail.
You can use real property (such as a home or a lot) with the court.
And lastly the judge can decide to let the defendant go on their own recognizance.
