When you are planning to bail a friend or family member out of jail, there are a few things that you should know. This way, you will be ready to go when you talk to a bail agent, which will help speed up the bail bond process.
- First, you need to know as much as you can about the person you are bailing out. The more information that you have, the easier it is for the bail agent to fill out all of the paperwork. However, you do not need to know everything about your friend or family member to bail him or her out. All you really need to know to get the bail process started is your loved one’s name, birthday, and the county of his or her arrest, but the more you know, the faster the bail process will be.
- You should know who will be willing to help you with bailing out your loved one. It is good to know who you can call on for help because, the more co-signers you have, the cheaper the bail bond can become for you.
- It will also be beneficial to know how much money you have available to offer beforehand. This will help the bail agent work with you on setting up the payment plan so you can afford to bail out your loved one. With a payment plan, the large cost of the bail bond will be broken up into more manageable monthly payments.
- Lastly, though most importantly, you want to know who you are working with. You want to find a bail agent who is local, and is dedicated to helping his or her clients. You can find bail agents like that at St Tammany Parish Bail Bonds.
