Many people don’t know how bail bonds work. It’s not something you talk about in daily conversations. You may only have to look into bonds if you or someone you know is arrested. Because of this, you may have the same questions as others new to the process. Here are helpful answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about obtaining bail bonds, their obligations and the available options available.
What information do you need to give the bail agent?
When you seek the help of a bail bond agent, be prepared with information to make the process easier and faster. For example, know the location where the arrested person is in custody, his or her full name and booking number in jail, as well as the dollar amount of the bail. If you don’t have this information, or if it is unavailable, the bail agent can often help you find the information you need.
