8 Helpful Tips to Know when Posting Bail

If you are in a pinch and have been arrested, it can be a difficult time for you and your family. Because of this, it’s important to know as much about the bail process as possible. You should know the ins and outs of posting bail. Here are some tips and information that will make the posting bail process easier to understand.

How to Get Someone Out of Jail: 8 Steps

Here are some bail bonding tips that will make posting bail easier and faster. These tips will help with understanding bail bonds in Utah. This comprehensive list of bail bond tips will help both defendants and those who are trying to help get a friend or loved one out of jail.

1) The First Step:

As soon as the defendant is processed, he or she should use the jail’s phone to call either a family member or friend who will then contact a local bail bond agency. Or, you can contact the bail bond agency yourself.

2) Ask Questions:

If you contact the bail bond agency yourself, ask the bondsman in Utah how much the premium will be. Then, you’ll need to let the person who is co-signing your bond know. It is important that they know the amount of the premium so that they know how much they will be responsible for. Additionally, make sure the bondsman you contact can issue the bond you need. In some states, some bondsmen can only issue bonds for certain crimes.

3) Be Prepared to Wait:

You may have to wait a short time for your release. The wait may depend upon the day of the week, the time of day, and/or how many bond agencies are in your area. Because of this, you should start the process as soon as you can. Make the call to a bond agency or a loved one who can contact a bond agency right away.

4) Check Reputations:

If you are helping a friend or loved one get out of jail, make sure to call around and find a bail bond agency that not only fits your needs but has a good reputation.

5) Have Collateral Available:

You will need to know the type of collateral needed to secure a bond. Usually, you can use a credit card, but if that is not available, you can use your car, home, jewelry, or other high-value items.

6) Know Your Rights:

If you are the friend or loved one putting up collateral, know that if the defendant is arrested again, you may be able to reclaim the premium you paid. Or, you may be able to resign your position as a co-signer on the bond. However, if they do get re-arrested, you may be required to repay the premium on both bonds—the old and the new.

7) Call Anytime:

One thing to note is that our Utah bail bond agency is open every day of the year, 24 hours a day. No matter what time of day or night, you can contact your local bail bonds agency to help you or your friend get out of jail.

8) Process of Posting Bail:

When you call a Salt Lake City, Utah bail bond agency, there will be an application process to go through. The agency may need to run a credit check on you or have you answer a series of questions regarding the person you are bonding out of jail.
