First, the person who has been arrested is taken to jail to be booked, where they await a bail hearing.
At the bail hearing a judge decides if the accused is eligible for bail. If they are, the judge decides on an amount. This decision is based on the severity of the crime.
When the judge decides on the amount of bail you must pay, you have a few options. You can either pay the full amount, or you can pay a bail bonds agent (that’s us) 15% of the bail amount as a guarantee and we take on the responsibility of paying the full amount to the court.
That’s basically it, not as intimidating as it seems, and we are here to help you every step of the way.
