BAIL BONDS EXPLAINED EASILY
Simply put, a bail bond is an agency’s guarantee to a court that the defendant will attend all applicable, required court dates while free from jail, or “out on bail.” The bail bond company assures the court that the defendant will appear to completion of the case (whether it ends in dismissal, acquittal, conviction, fine, community service requirements, or compulsory classes). If the defendant misses court, or “skips” out on bail, the court can enforce the bail bond surety agreement and make the agency “forfeit” the full amount of the bail.
You may be wondering if it makes more sense to bypass the bondsman and pay the jail or court the full bail yourself. The answer to that is maybe. Just know there are advantages either way. If bail is set at say $5,000, you do have the option of paying the court $5,000 in cash or certified funds to start the release process. You will get back that entire amount (occasionally the court may keep a tiny portion) as long as the defendant attends all court dates on time to completion. If he or she misses court, or is tardy, you risk losing the whole $5,000 immediately. If you were to hire a bail agency, you’d pay the state-required 15% premium of $750, and only risk losing the full $5,000 if the bail agency loses the entire $5,000—that is a rarity. If the defendant misses court, bondsmen are given a length of time (usually 2 months or more) to either have the defendant to get back on calendar with the court, or bring the fugitive back to into custody. Although the $750 is a non-refundable fee for the bonding company’s service, you lower your risk level of losing the $5,000 outright. By co-signing on the bond, you are only responsible for out of pocket fees the bail agency pays when the defendant “violates” his bail bond agreement. Another huge advantage obviously, is the up front cost is significantly lower when hiring a bondsman, especially when we give you the option of financing the 15% bond premium.
BAIL BONDS PAYMENT PLANS
No one in the industry is more flexible than us with payment plans. With as little as $100 down, we can usually pre-approve any misdemeanor bail bond up to $5,000. There are even cases where we can bail out your loved one for zero money down! As long the defendant and co-signer live and work locally (retired folks drawing a pension or full time students qualify many times), have established, solid residence history, and can make steady payments, they are pre-approved! Payments are then required usually every 2 weeks until the premium is paid While management does reserve all rights in underwriting, over half of our bail is written with such agreements—in other words, we don’t just brag about payment plans just to make the phone ring. We will not bait ‘n switch you—we promise!
CO-SIGNING IS NOT TOO SCARY
As long as you are comfortably assured the your loved one will attend court and comply, you have little to fear. We are not sitting by waiting for the defendant to make a mistake, so we can nickel and dime you. The only time you are on the hook for more than the 15% premium required by Nevada law, is if the defendant negligently violates the bond. In essence, if you know the defendant well and trust them to not take advantage of you, things will be ok! We understand mistakes happen, and even court dates are missed with no ill intent. That is why your out of pocket expenses when the defendant misses court and gets right back on calendar are little to nothing. Rarely, in our years of business has a co-signer had to reimburse our bail bond office the full amount of the bond.
