Arranging bail for someone you care for is a lot easier than you might think. Although every bail bonds company provides the same service for the same price, that is not to say they all operate the same way. Some allow you the option of purchasing online bail bonds whereas others require their clients come into their office. Some allow for flexible, creative payment solutions while others have set procedures when it comes to payment plans.
Most people find that arranging bail by email or fax is the fastest and easiest way to get someone out of jail.
If your bondsman is able to assist you in this way they will begin by asking you a few quick questions. They will ask for the name of the defendant, their date of birth and their bail amount, if you know it. If you don’t have all of this information readily available that’s OK, it can be looked up. From there the bondsman will prepare a customized bail contract that they can send to you via email or fax. The document is easy-to-understand and will take about 10 minutes to fill out. Once you return it to the bondsman and arrange payment they will dispatch an agent to the jail to post the bond.
Learning someone you care for has been arrested and taken into custody can be a very stressful time. Working with an experienced San Jose bondsman who can assist you in a way that is convenient can help take some of the edge off.
