Everything can seem pretty scary when you, or a member of your family, have been arrested and charged. It may even seem overwhelming.

With so much on your mind, you can let our company take this major burden off your shoulders, providing the best, if not the only, solution when you are arrested and charged.
How do bail bonds work?
If you are arrested and charged, you will have to stay in jail till after a judge has decided at a bail hearing whether or not to grant bail. Bail is an amount of money that you post with the court as a sign of good faith that you will return for the trial if you are released from jail until proceedings start. If you are granted bail, you do have the choice to pay it in cash, but how many of us have that amount of money at hand?
If you can’t afford the bail, and can’t find help to pay it, you will have to stay in jail until your case is heard and decided. This could involve many months, and sometimes years, spent separated from your family and home. The best way to handle your situation is to contact professionals who can help you with an affordable bail bond. And that’s where a bail agent or licensed bondsman comes in.
What your bail bondsman will do for you
In deciding whether or not to grant you bail, the judge will take into account the nature and seriousness of the charge against you, your criminal history, and how great the risk is that you won’t return to attend trial.
If you post bail for yourself in California, it will cost you anywhere between $20 000 and 5million dollars. Every county in the state has its own schedule regarding the bail money to be called for in relation to the crime involved. That’s another reason why it’s necessary to work with a local company like ours, which provides 24 hour bail bonds. They have all the local knowledge necessary to get the process going without a hitch.
You or your loved one should call us as soon as possible after the arrest. As a bailbondsman is usually available 24 hours a day, you will probably get an answer, no matter how late you call. Make sure you have the necessary details available, so that no time is wasted. These details include your full name, the charges against you, the booking number of your case, and, of course, the location of your jail.
Depending on the size of the jail bond, you may be expected to sign over some form of collateral to cover it. This can take the form of jewellery, a car, or even a house. If you can’t provide the collateral, the bail agent can approach your family and friends to act as co-signers.
There will also be a fee for the service. In California, the non-refundable fee for the bailbondsman is fixed at a maximum of 10%. It can be lower, though, depending on the circumstances. Once the collateral is sorted out, and the fee paid, the bond is posted with the court. This will be done quickly, and you will be free to go home as soon as the jail processes your release. From there it is over to you – you will have to be at all court proceedings, and also make sure to meet any terms set out by your bail bonds company.

What happens if you skip town
It is important to remember that should you fail to stick to the conditions the court attached to your bail, and don’t appear in court when necessary, you will face the consequences. This includes the fact that the bail agent will be within his rights to track you down for the money, or use a bounty hunter to do so. This is not surprising, because if you don’t show up at proceedings, the bondsman stands to lose the bail money he has lodged with the court on your behalf. You also stand to lose any collateral you (or someone dear to you) signed over to the bondsman, if you renege on your commitment to return for the trial.
All’s well that ends well
If you stick with the agreement you made with both the court and the Rancho Cucamonga bail bonds company, the bond will be exonerated when the case is over, regardless of the outcome. You and your loved ones will no longer have the bail bond to honor, or have to fear losing the valuables you signed over as collateral.
