Establishing a Relationship With Your Bail Bonds Agent
When the application has been filled out and we have secured the 10% state mandated fee, the next step is to get your loved one out of jail. We will go over the co-signer's and defendant's rights and responsibilities as soon as your loved one has been released. The Constitution guarantees your right to post bail and obtain early release. When you choose to exercise that right, there are responsibilities that go along with it. Attending all court scheduled hearings is at the top of the list. While out on bond, you must stay within the jurisdiction of the court and abide by all stipulations put forth by the court for your particular case.
Your bail bonds agent will guide you through the process and make sure you understand every aspect of how a bail bond works and what is expected of you. In return, you have to communicate fully and effectively with them at all times. This means checking in regularly, maintaining current, personal contact information, and making yourself available if something comes up and your agent needs to meet with you. It's important to make sure the attorney you hire has your bail bonds agent's contact information so that we can remain in contact with them as well. As part of your team, we want to make sure you have everything you need for a successful outcome for your case. This includes protecting your rights and providing you a positive source of support.
Why Is Checking In So Important?
As part of the bond agreement, the defendant is required to check in with their bail bonds agent on a regular basis. There are two ways to check in. You can call into the bail bonds office or you can show up in person. Why is this so important? It serves several purposes. First and foremost, it shows your willingness to comply with the court's requests and take responsibility for your actions. It also ensures your bail bonds agent that you're still in the vicinity. In some cases, the defendant may also be required by the court to check in with a probation officer or other court representative.
