If your loved one has been arrested, don’t waste any time before calling A Way Out Bail Bonds. You need to get your loved one out of jail for his or her own safety and so that it’ll be easier to prepare a defense against the charges. Most people don’t have the money up front to make bail, so a bail bondsman can help you get your loved one free.
What Are Bail Bonds?
Whenever someone is arrested, they can be freed from jail if they or someone else posts bail. An Arlington TX bail bond ensures that the person will return to court for trial; if he or she does not, the payee forfeits the bail money. Bail is usually set in the thousands of dollars to make this less likely; people are less likely to want to forfeit large sums of money such as $25,000.
Unfortunately, because bail is set so high, some people give up and stay in jail until their trial date. This is entirely unnecessary as well as unsafe. You need to get out of jail right away to protect yourself; instead of waiting for your trial date, contact an Arlington bail bond agent.
A bail bond agent basically loans you the bail money. You or your family pay 10 percent of the bail upfront, and the agent pays the rest. For example, if your bail is set at $25,000, you have to pay $2,500 up front and pay the rest back to the bail bond agency over time. This makes it a lot easier for you to get out of jail.
If you don’t speak English or weren’t born in the United States, you may need to work with an immigration bail bond agent. Look for an agent that speaks Spanish as well as English and is familiar with immigration laws. He or she can pay bail so that you’re free pending your immigration hearing. This is especially important so that you’ll be able to contact an immigration lawyer and work on staying in the United States.
