Here’s What You Need to Know About Bail Bonds, Honolulu, Hawaii

Few events are more stressful than seeing a loved one involved in legal trouble, and though each situation is unique, most family members want their loved one to come home before a trial. That’s why many individuals turn to bail bonds when they cannot afford to post bail on their own. But if it’s your first time, you may not know how this service works. The team at 24 Hour Bail Bonds Oahu in Honolulu, HI, have provided a handy guide below to prepare you.

Bail Bond FAQ

What Information Do I Need to Provide?

To post bail, your bondsman will need to know the name, booking number, and location of the person in jail. It is also helpful if you already know the bail amount, so they can give you a cost estimate right away.

How Much Will I Need to Pay?

Most bail bonds providers require a payment of 10% of the total cost of bail. Hawaii law prohibits bail bond providers from offering lower rates. This fee is non-refundable.

How Long Will It Take to Secure a Release?

What Happens Next?

Even after securing a release, the accused will need to appear in court for their trial. Most individuals are not allowed to leave the state before their trial date. Failure to appear in court can cause your bond to default, and the judge will issue a warrant for the accused’s arrest.
