San Gabriel Valley Bail Bonds
Understanding the Bail Process
When you get a phone call saying that your friend or family member is in jail, will you know how to help them? Many people have never had to deal with bail bonds in their life, so it is understandable that you are not yet familiar with the bail bond process. Fortunately, our professional
bail bond agency has been in the business for over 40 years and we can help answer all of your
questions about bail!
When working with one of our bail bond agents, we can provide you with information about
property bonds, cash bonds and non-collateral bonds. A bail bond, or a surety bond, is a contractual agreement between a signer or cosigners of a bond and the bail bond agency guaranteeing that a defendant will appear in court. If the defendant skips, or flees before the hearing, the signer of the bond may be held responsible for the full amount.
Types of Bail Bonds in San Gabriel Valley
Understanding how bail works and the different types of bonds can be quite difficult. Our office aims to broaden your knowledge before calling us to get the help you need. However, we do offer free information over the phone to have all of your questions and concerns immediately addressed.
The following are types of bonds that we can help you learn more about:
- Criminal Bail Bonds – A type of bail bond that a person can obtain after they have been arrested and detained for violating the law. The signer of the bond is responsible for the full bail amount if the defendant fails to appear in court.
- Surety Bail Bonds – This is a type of bond that is a signed agreement between the defendant, the bond agency and the court, and is used if a defendant is unable to post the full bail amount at the jail.
- Property Bonds – This type of bond uses property as collateral in the event that a defendant does not show up for the hearing.
For more information and to learn more about bail bonds, please do not wait to call us! Your loved one has a short window of time to obtain proper legal counsel before facing arraignment, and without posting bail, you are preventing them from doing so. While there are many risks involved in signing an Indemnity Agreement on the bail bond, we can help guide you through the process and ensure that you are aware of the benefits and disadvantages before signing.
