When you are dealing with a loved one or family member that has been arrested it can be an extremely stressful time. The hardest thing is that you need to get in contact with several people when you are dealing with bail. The first call that you are going to need to deal with is from the person that has been locked up and arrested by the police department. They will be able to provide information about what is going on and let you know where they are. You need to know what jail they are being processed in as well as what the charges are to give to the bail company. The call is not going to be long and the biggest issue is that this call may not come at a convenient time. It could even come all hours of the day or night. Once the call is over you want to start working on bail as soon as possible. The problem is that you need to know how to get in contact with a bail company and you may need to use non-conventional ways in doing so.
 

Ajua Bail Bonds Lists Ways You Can Get in Contact With a Bail Bond Company

Call a Bail Bonds Office Near Me: The first option that you have to contact a place of business is to use your phone and give them a call. If the office is open at that time you will get a receptionist that will be able to take the call and give you the information that you need. If you get a hold of the bail bondsman they will need to know what jail your loved one is at and they can take the information from there. They will contact the jail and get the information that is needed to start processing the bail and getting them released. This is the most common way to contact a business including bail bonds companies but it is not the only way.
Use Website Contact Form Or Internet: With everyone on their cell phones and using the internet every day you can use it to get in contact with a business. Some people prefer to send the information to a company via the internet such as an email, contact form on their website or even through social media. You can send a private message if you are able to find their Facebook page or you can use their website, many companies have a form that you can fill out in the site that then is submitted and emailed to a representative at the company who can review them and return calls and messages. If you are getting a hold of them late at night this may be the best way to get your information out to them quickly.
Bail Company Recommendation or Referral: If you are in this situation with a loved one that has been arrested it is a great time to lean on other people that may have been through the same thing. When you know someone that has used a bail company in the past it is a great way to find someone that you know has shown their expertise. They may also have a different number such as a bail agent’s personal cell number or contact name that can benefit you.

Having a loved one arrested is devastating enough, but its worse when you are unable to meet the cost of bail. However there are three methods of obtaining a bail bond with no to little cost. They are private bail bonds, signature bonds, and property bonds. Ajua Bail Bonds knows it can be a struggle to get your loved one out of jail and wants to help you understand that these things are an option during those times when finances are tight.
 

Private Bail Bond

A private bail bond is when the court will keep the bail amount and then can issue a warrant to arrest you if you miss a court date. The judge will set a bail amount depending on the crime, criminal history, and flight risk. As long as the accused makes all their court dates, the amount is returned after trial, whether the accused are found guilty or innocent. Private bonds are loans taken from companies that will pay bail, but keep a percentage of the amount — usually 10% as payment. If the accused misses any court dates, the bond company will have to give the court the entire amount of the bail. To protect themselves, bondsmen ask you to put up collateral that they will keep if they don’t get the bail amount back. Common examples of collateral include real estate, cars, credit cards, stocks and bonds, jewelry, personal credit, and bank accounts.
 

Signature Bond

Ask the attorney to request a signature bond. A lawyer will be more familiar with the process, and will be better equipped to make an argument in favor of a signature bond. You can also request the signature bond yourself if you don’t have an attorney. It may help if you can find friends or relatives of the accused to co-sign with you. This demonstrates community ties, and might persuade the court that the person in jail will meet the promise to make his or her court dates. Pay the entire bail amount as a public bond. If you can cover the entire amount of bail, you can just pay the amount yourself. Go to the jail where the person is being held with a check, cashier’s check, or money order in the amount of the bail. You may have to pay a non-refundable administrative fee. Once they process your payment, the person in jail will be free to leave.
 

Property Bond

A property bond is a type of bond that lets you sign over the deed to a property in return for the accused released from jail. The property is held as insurance in case the person doesn’t make their court appearances. This option is only available to people who own a home or other property. Make sure you have the needed paperwork. When you request a property bond from the court, they will ask you for several documents. Make sure you have the deed to the property, an appraisal or tax assessment of the property to prove its value to the court, and a statement from the mortgage company showing how much is still owed, if applicable. The court will subtract any amount still owed from the appraised value of the property. Be aware that if more than one person is on the deed, each person must be present in court to sign the bond. Contact the court to find out who you should speak to about assessing the value of your property. Remember that the court’s officer might decide to deny your request, in which case the accused person has to stay in jail.

If you get alerted that you have a warrant out of your arrest, you are going to need to take care of it. Most of the time the person that has a warrant knows what has transpired to get them in that particular situation. It can be due to any array of infractions or it can be due to a no show to a required court date. The court date is mandatory especially for someone that is out on bail. If you find yourself in a situation that you have a warrant out for your arrest and you need to turn yourself in. This has to be done at the jail to take care of the issues and you should know what you are getting yourself into when you go.

Do You Have An Attorney: It is always a great idea to have an attorney when you are dealing with any criminal charges that could lead to jail time. You want to make sure you know what you are getting yourself into and what you can expect with the crime you are being charged with. You also want to have their help to see if there is any way to lessen the charge before you are given a sentence.
Do You Have A Bail Bond Company: If you have an active warrant and you find yourself in a situation that you have to turn yourself in you want to have a few things figured out before you go to the jail. A bail bond company is going to help get the information that you need as well as set up what you need before you can get bailed out. You want to make sure you know exactly what the charge is for when you show up. A bail company can look up the warrant and get that information for you. You also want to know what the bond amount will be and if it is already set. Then you can talk to loved ones about the money that is going to be necessary as well as who will sign for the bail. Are you going to be given a specific jail amount before you can bond out and what amount of time is it? The warrant will have lots of information and the bail company acting on your behalf can get the information you need.
How To Get Bail After You Are Turned In: You have done all the leg work that is necessary before you turn yourself in so the next step is the actual turn in. In Kings County, you can go to the jail and turn yourself in and then the actual process to set up bail can begin.

For most people the first time they are arrested they are wondering when they can bail out and if they should have maybe bailed out of the situation that got them arrested in the first place a lot sooner. Well there’s some good news and bad news. It is estimated that about 95% of people arrested are in fact eligible for bail but what about the other 5%? Well, here comes the bad news. That 5% aren’t always eligible for bail. There are many reasons why someone arrested might not be eligible to be bailed out of that uncomfortable situation they’ve found themselves in. Ajua Bail Bonds talk about the five most common reasons bail may be denied.
 

Reasons for Refusing Bail – Risk to the Public

The Bail Reform Act of 1984 was created to protect the public from persons who present a danger to themselves or the community. This is taken into consideration by a judge when making the decision to grant or deny bail. This is called pretrial or preventative detention. An offender may be considered dangerous for the following reasons:
• They are repeat offenders.
• They are accused of extremely violent crimes.
• The crimes penalties are life imprisonment or the death penalty.
• Their crime is a drug offense where the penalty will be 10 years or more in prison.
• Other felonies such as failing to register as a sex offender, weapons possession or crimes involving minors.
 

Bail Denied – Accused of Federal or More Severe Crime

More severe crimes for example, murder, either receive an extremely high bail amount that makes it more difficult for them to make bail or are just denied bail outright. This is because these offenders are more likely to flee or skip out on their court appearance if they are released.
 

No Bail for Parole or Probation Violations

The judge will have a hard time feeling bad for you if you chose to commit another crime while you were already out on parole or probation. The courts have no sympathy for repeat offenders. Since said defendant misused the freedom they had, the courts won’t feel bad denying them bail and leaving them sitting in jail.
 

Reason for No Bail; Non-US Citizens

Those defendants who are non-citizens are usually more likely to flee to their home country no matter what they’ve been arrested for. These persons are often denied bail and may also be held by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).
 

Flight Risk; Bail Refusal

No, we aren’t talking about people who enjoy running as a pastime. We are talking about “flight risks”. Those who had failed to appear at their appointed court date or dates are considered flight risks and are very likely to be denied bail. Judges don’t like it when you don’t come see them when you’re supposed to so if a defendant has run after posting bail before, the judge is going to make sure you see them this time.
