How a Bail Bondsman Can Keep Families Together for the Holidays, Silver Hill, North Carolina

Spending time with family and relatives is one of the heartwarming highlights of the holiday season. Unfortunately, if you’re arrested, you’ll miss out on the festivities and meaningful family memories. The encouraging news is a bail bondsman can help you cover the cost of bail and keep you out of jail, so you can get back to your family quickly. Here’s what you should know about the bail bond process.   

How a Bail Bondsman Helps Families During the Holidays

Bail Bond Savings

A bail bondsman has more flexibility to arrange affordable bail than if a defendant pays directly to the court. The judge determines the bail amount based on the crime committed. Bail acts as a type of insurance, allowing an incarcerated person to be released from jail if they pay and promise to appear on their court date.

For some, the bail amount set by the judge can be significantly high. If the defendant isn’t able to pay it, they can seek help from a bail bondsman. In return for a guarantee that they’ll show up in court, a bail bondsman will pay the bail, and typically collect a percentage of the bail amount as a fee for their services. The most common way to receive a bail bond is to post collateral — such as a house or car — or to have a co-signer who will guarantee the defendant will show up in court.

More Court Date Preparation Time

Posting bail can save your family from difficult conversations. At the Thanksgiving dinner table, there won’t be awkward explanations about why someone isn’t there. Parents won’t have to miss young children opening presents on Christmas morning. The time before your court date should be spent celebrating with family, not missing out on memories because you’re stuck in jail.
