Criminal Bail Bond

There are many bail bonds agencies in San Diego, the question is which one is the most reliable and can get your loved one out of jail the fastest. Different bail bonds companies in San Diego may offer help for different service areas, for example, some bail bond companies may help if your loved one has a warrant but other agencies may not.

By posting a bail bond the bail agency holds the financial responsibility for the full amount of the bond and is responsible for bringing the accused to the judge-appointed court date. In the event a criminal defendant fails to appear in court, the court will forfeit the bail. The bail agency has a limited amount of time to return the defendant to custody or they will have to pay the full amount of the bail to the court.

Bailing out a loved one from a holding can be very traumatic. Thus, people in a stressful situation are more prone to sign a contract with any bail bond company in hopes to be reunited with their loved one quickly. However, different companies may have different conditions and requirements. Consequently, when people are offered what seems to be a ‘very good deal’ by a bail bond agency, they may find that their final cost may ultimately be much different than what they originally believed. Thus before signing any contract with a bail bond company, be sure that you have researched the company online and understand the contract terms and conditions.

The time for a bailed person to be released from jail depends on the workload of the police station, jail or processing center, which can be anywhere between 2 to 24 hours. If the bail agent is unfamiliar with the release procedures in a particular county, it can prolong the process even longer.

When the bail is set, some people may be able to post the full bail amount at the jail. The money they deposited will be returned to the depositor when the case is over. However, most people cannot afford the whole amount, especially when they are having financial difficulties.

One of the most convenient and effective ways to post bail for a loved one or a friend is to hire a bail bond company; There are many steps in the bail bond process. The first obvious step is to contact a reliable bail bond company. In most cases, a friend or a relative of the arrestee contacts a local bail bond company. The bail bond company will collect all the information about the arrestee and evaluate the amount of risk involved in posting a bail bond for the case. Most agencies will charge a non-refundable fee, usually 10% of the total amount of the bail for their services. An agency may also require a cosigner to guarantee payment for any costs up to the full amount of the bail in the event the bond is forfeited. Sometimes the bail bond company will ask for collateral in order to put up the bail. Usually collateral is required when the bail bond agency determines that security is needed to cover their exposure for the liability on the bond.

  • I guess this is a slightly embarrassing review, but anyway. I was sick of the smell and ready to go home and take a shower. I called a bunch of numbers, trying desperately to find the bondsman that could spring me the quickest. Big Marco Bail Bonds said they'd be able to get me out as soon as all my processing was done (around 2pm.) Others I had called had said 4,6,7pm! No way! They followed through on their end and I was out breathing fresh air at 2:05pm. Signed some paperwork after getting out, and then a month later after my court date.
