What Do I Ask When I Call?
When calling a bail bondsman, first thing you want to find out is what the total fee is going to be. You want to be aware of all the charges that you could be facing so that you can budget accordingly. Some bail bonds are more affordable than others. Payments can sometimes be available.
You should also find out what requirements a bail bondsman will be asking for. Sometimes collateral and references are required in order for a bail to be posted.
In addition, you also need to know what reporting requirements they will have. After a person bonds out, they are typically required to check in periodically, depending on the agreement. You must be aware of what will be required to ensure that you will be able to comply with all the requirements.
