The typical person who suddenly finds himself in the unfortunate and very unexpected circumstance of having to put up bail money will need the help of an experienced bail agency. First of all, anyone new to the judicial system will need guidance from someone who knows all the ins and outs, and 2, he will most likely be unable to come up with the amount of money needed in such a short time. The main goal is to get his friend out of a tight spot asap, and the best way to do that is by letting a bail bondsman take him through the process with as little hassle as possible.
The process itself is pretty basic. You get arrested, you’re taken to jail, booked and put in a holding cell until it is time for your arraignment hearing where a judge will decide if you will be granted bail and if so how much it will amount to. Problems can arise however, but a bondsman who is familiar with the workings of the particular facility will know his way around most of the pitfalls.
Being out on bail is not even close to being free of the charges against you and there are certain actions that can land you right back behind bars, but being allowed to go back to work and be with your family is a big plus. The next best thing about being released from custody is that it gives you the opportunity to work with your attorney to build a defense. A law office is a much better environment for discussion as your jail cell would have been.
Depending on how serious the charges against you are and the circumstances involved, the judge may have attached certain stipulations to your bail agreement. It will be for your own good and and in his agency’s best interests that your bondsman helps you to comply with those conditions. You can count on him to remind you of upcoming court dates for instance, and personally get you there on time if the need arises.
