Stuart And West Palm Beach Bail Bonds: How They Work

 By: Jamie S Hanson
Anyone who has ever been arrested knows what bail is and how difficult it can be to pay it. Stuart bail and West Palm Beach bail bonds agencies make it a lot easier, but you should still have a good idea of how the entire process works. This article will guide you through the entire process.

Finding Bail Bonds Help

If you are in jail in Stuart, bail can be a bit of a challenge. It's often set at such a level that you can either pay and have nothing to live on afterwards, or you will have to seek help. Finding a bail bonds office isn't too difficult, there are a lot of them out there, but this is where it gets tricky.

All bail agencies charge the same fee. That's 10% for state charges, 15% for federal. That means no one agency can be higher or lower than this, so you can't decide on a bail bonds agency by price.

What it comes down to is looking for a company that has the experience and the connections to speed things up.

The Interview

West Palm Beach bail bonds agencies work like any other. You'll have to contact them, or have a family member do so for you. They will then send a bondsman to come and talk with you. This interview is where they will decide if you are a good risk or not and you can ask any questions you have about the entire process.

During the interview, you'll have to provide proof that you have something of value to cover the entire bail if you decide to run. This can also be collateral posted by another person, such as a family member.

If the bail agency decides to take you on as a client, your photo will be taken and you will be fingerprinted, etc. so the agency has up to date records on you.

Paying Your Stuart Bail

You will have to pay the percentage of your bail that is required, according to what type of case there is against you. Then the bondsman will speak with the court and arrange to pay your bail. How long this takes will depend greatly on the amount of the bail, as well as what kind of relationship the bail bonds agency has with the judge.

After this, you'll be free to leave the jail. While you can go about your life, you will still be required to go to court when you are called. This is very important. If you miss a court date or try to make a run for it, the bail agency loses their money and that means they won't be too happy.

If You Run

When you take off and skip your court dates, you become a fugitive. There is usually a reward offered for capturing anyone who has run from their bail. Since the bail is held until you have appeared at all your court dates have been fulfilled, this means you cause the West Palm Beach bail bonds agency lose out on their money. They aren't going to be happy and they usually come after anyone who does this. The bigger the bail, the bigger the reward to catch you.

Upon arrest, it's very rare that a fugitive will be granted bail again. They have already proven themselves to be runners and untrustworthy. That means jail time until the next court date.
