Hopefully you will never need the services of a bail bondsman since if you do it will most likely mean that you or someone you care about has gotten into trouble with the law. However, just as with most things it never hurts to be prepared.
If a crises ever arose would you know how to contact a bail agency and what questions to ask if you did? Most people would admit to having no clue and that is to be expected, but there are some specific factors to consider.
The main reason that people choose to retain a bail bond agency is the fact that bailing themselves out of jail can be too costly to afford on their own. Unless the charge is quite minimal or the judge is particularly forgiving, you could be facing life altering expenses. By paying a nominal fee to a bail bondsman however, you will be able to afford your freedom and get back to your home and family in no time.
Of course your obligation doesn’t end there. Being freed on bond means that you can return to your life and work with your attorney to be ready with your defense, but along with that freedom comes responsibility to the court. Your bondsman will be there to remind you of trial dates that will demand your presence and help you stick to any preconditions that may have been part of your bail agreement.
If you should miss a court date due to unforeseen circumstances such as illness or accident your bondsman can issue what is known as a “resumption of liability” explaining the particulars of the situation and requesting that a new date be set. It is important to contact your bondsman asap so that he is able to intercede before you are arrested on a warrant for failure to appear in court.
