It can cause a major disturbance to your home life, both logistically and emotionally, if your spouse or loved one has been imprisoned. It can seem utterly overwhelming to have the prospect of posting bail bonds. You are unlikely to have enough cash, and if you do, you will not be able to have your cash sitting somewhere inaccessible to you while the defendant is awaiting trial. This is where, at a time when you are likely to be emotionally fraught, a licenced bondman will come in to play both to help post the bond and to direct you through the complex processes.Learn more about us at Connecticut Bail Bonds Group
The loop works like this. A certain amount of cash will be set as their bail after your loved one has been booked and arraigned, and if this amount can be posted, they will be released to face trial from the comforts of home where they will continue to contribute both socially, logistically and financially to family life. You can then contact a legally approved bond firm, because you probably won’t have the money to post the bond yourself.
Their business is bail bonds, so they will have a clear understanding of the procedure and what is expected. Be prepared to answer a lot of questions when you meet with a bondsman for the first time. They will question you about the basic details of the case, such as the rates, booking numbers, and what facility is being kept by the arrestee. You can come armed with as much details as you can to make things move as smoothly as possible.
However, the interrogation will not end there. They will need to figure out how dangerous this unique bond is for them to publish. If your loved one loses a court date or flees from their commitments, then the court will not refund the bond. At this point, you will be reliant on the bail bond firm to pay the full sum. Since you are unlikely to be able to pay it off in a timely manner, to avoid posting risky bonds, they want to do whatever they can.
They could ask any number of personal questions to assess the risk factors in your loved one ‘s case, such as whether or not the individual has had any previous convictions, what their work record is like, and how permanently they are settled in their current residence. If the bond firm agrees to accept the bond, if your loved one fails to appear in court, they will draw up a contract whereby you agree to pay the entire bond sum. Then you give them a fee, normally 10% of the bond that will be theirs to hold, and they’ll go to prison to give the bail bond and negotiate for the release of your loved one.
A critical matter is the posting of bail bonds. You do not want to post the bond at all if you don’t have full confidence that your loved one can fulfil all their obligations to the court. Know that you would be left owing the entire bond sum if they refuse to comply with all court orders, and this can be both emotionally and financially a heavy burdenFeature Papers.
