Like it or not – at some point, you or someone you know will be required to post bond. When that happens you will need to contract the services of a bail bondsman.  Bail bondsmen are part of our criminal justice system. They help people post bail so they won’t have to stay in jail until their trial date. The services of a bail bondsman can be a huge relief when you can’t post bail for yourself, or are looking to help someone you know post bail.

But – how do you know a ‘good’ bail bondsman from a not-so-desirable one? Here are a few tips to help you find the best possible service.

Licencing

Be sure that the bail bonds company and their employees are fully licensed by the state in which you live. They know the laws, rules, and how the court systems work. This understanding will give them the ability to provide you with the best possible service and help make the process as easy as possible for your type of case. If the bond company does not have a local office, then find one that does.

Experience

Experience is vital when it comes to posting bail for clients. The bondsman should be well-versed in the protocols of your local jails and courts. Bond companies who have been in business for many years know all of the ‘techniques’ needed to speed up a person’s release. Don’t take a bondsman offering ‘cheap services.’ Remember, you will get what you pay for.

Accessiblity

Let’s face it – situations can happen outside of the ‘9 to 5’ work schedule most of us adhere to. Check a bond company’s accessibility. Your bail bondsman should be able to be available when ‘you’ need them. Not just when posting bail, but one your or a person you know is released. Many times a bondsman is needed during the trial of a case. Will they be able to be with you during the trial if it comes to that? If not, think again.

Finding a bond company or bond person that offers bail services over the phone will help you or someone else secure the funds needed to get released as soon as possible.

Payment Flexibility

Even though bondsmen charge the same types of fees, each one has the ability to provide their own flexible settlement plans. When looking for a bondsman, make sure he/she takes the time to grasp your current situation, while offering several ways for you to repay the bail that really ‘fit your needs.’

  1. I agree that a bond company should be flexible around when you need them, and I’d never thought about what would happen if they were needed in case of a trial. Things to think about! Thanks for sharing.

    I am helping my mom and dad to find a bondsmen for my little brother. Something that is really important to us is finding someone that is easily accessible and will work with us whenever we need them. I like that you mention that point in this article. It will definitely be worth it to have someone that is easy to work with.

    I bet having a bail bondsman helps those who can’t pay for bail themselves. I didn’t know that a bail bonds company could be licensed. Having a licensed bail bondsman probably makes the process a lot easier and quicker since they know exactly what they’re doing and have probably done it before.
