Working With a Bail Bond Service
There are some reasons people need a payday loan or title loan they would just rather not talk about. We completely understand this. Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn and you or someone close to you finds themselves in an unforeseen and possibly embarrassing situation.
To be perfectly clear, we’re talking about the need for a bail bond.
Yeah, there are times when people make mistakes. In fact, we here at CASH 1 are pretty sure no one ever actually intends to need bail a bail bond on purpose. And for whatever the reasons, these are usually times when life just seemed to take a bad turn and you found yourself in some pretty hot water. Don’t panic, it happens to a lot of people, and while CASH 1 is not a bail bond service, we can give you some tips on how to deal with these services should the need arise.
First, if you find yourself in such a situation, contact a bond service only if the court does not set a cash bond. If a cash bond is set, then deal directly with the county in those cases. Better not to have to pay the fee for a bond service if you don’t have to.
However, if you have no choice (specifically, if a bond amount is very high, this is when you would need a bail bond service), then investigate the various bond agencies in your area and find out which one has the best reputation. When you do settle on one, contact the service and explain your situation. Be prepared to answer a lot of questions and give them a lot of your personal information. Remember, they are taking out a bond in you or your loved one’s name, and this is all a matter of trust. They need to be sure that a client will not flee (skip out on bail) as soon as they are released. You will need to inform the bond service of your relationship to the person who needs the bond.
Once you’ve secured a bond, arrange with the service to pay at least ten percent of the bail amount (this is standard practice in most areas), and then wait for the bond service to draw up the necessary paperwork. Once the bond is approved, the person will be released into your care. As the person who applied for the bond, you will be responsible for making sure the person released into your care shows up for their court date. Otherwise you will be responsible for the full amount of the bond.
We at CASH 1 hope you will never find yourself in need of the services of a bail bond company. But if you do, or the bond in question is a cash bond and you do not have the cash necessary, come see us at CASH 1 for a payday loan or title loan. We offer services in Arizona and Nevada.
