Getting arrested is a terrifying experience. If you are getting arrested when you are far from home, it can be even worse. You have no one nearby that you can call and come to your rescue. Luckily, all is not lost. You have the option of a transfer bail bond. Ajua Bail Bonds would like to explain exactly what a transfer bail bond is and when it would be used.
What is a Transfer Bail Bond?
When you are arrested far from home and need help, a transfer bail bond might be an option for you. Transfer bonds make it possible for someone in your hometown or state to go to their local bail bond office and take care of the paperwork and post bond for you. From there, it will be transferred from one location to another where the person is being held.
Higher Costs are Associated with Transfer Bonds
When you are in need of a transfer bond, you will most likely be paying an extra fee for it. Here’s why. When dealing with transfer bonds, there are two companies essentially working for you. It requires more work and extra hours to take care of the paperwork, calling and transferring to get the job done. Every state is different, but each state usually has a maximum fee they are allowed to charge for transfer bonds. If the bail bond agent has to travel a long distance in order to complete the transfer bond, there may be a travel fee as well for the extra time it takes to do so. It should be something that you look into, but at least you don’t have to worry about it costing you an arm and a leg to get the job done.
Financial Responsibility for the Transfer Bail Bond
When working with transfer bonds, the bail bond agent that requests the bond be written is the one that is financially liable. The bail bond agency that who writes the bond and then transfers it is known as the executing agent and doesn’t hold the financial liability if the defendant doesn’t show up for their court date. Remember that if the defendant doesn’t show up for their scheduled court dates, it can end up costing the cosigner a pretty penny. It can be costly to resolve the issue so cosigners should be certain that the defendant can appear in court just as if the bond was written locally.
