Bailing someone out of jail may seem like an intimidating process. Fortunately, this doesn’t need to be the case. At Blandon Bail Bonds, we strive to make this stressful time as straightforward as possible.
How Does the Bail Process Work?
When someone is arrested, they may be able to secure an early release from jail provided they post bail. Bail is a set of pre-trial restrictions the detained person must follow and is secured with a monetary bond.
The process of bailing someone out of jail is easier than you may think. Here's what you need to do:
Just place a call to Blandon Bail Bonds at 305-597-4595.
Once you provide us with the defendant’s name, we’ll find all the necessary information on the defendant and give you a free quote.
If you choose to bail them out, we can either send you the forms located on our website by fax, e-mail, in person.
Our agents are always at the major South Florida jails, meaning once we give them the OK, they will turn in the necessary paperwork.
Posting Bail: How Does Collateral Work?
When a person is arrested on a criminal charge, they may be held for trial unless that person facilitates the payment of the bail amount issued by the court as security for their appearance.
When the person is released on bail, they promise to appear in court at the designated time and place. If the person makes their court appearances as scheduled, the security – or collateral – is returned. If the person is released on bail but fails to appear in court on their designated appearance date, the bail bond becomes payable and is forfeited as a penalty.
For this reason, a bond usually requires some collateral such as cash, a title to a property or other types of security. However, at Blandon Bail Bonds, in many instances, no collateral is required unless the bond requires a significant amount of money.
