Having a friend or family member sent to jail can be scary. The uncertainty, the weight of the charges against your loved one, and the amount of money sometimes required to bail your loved one out of jail can be overwhelming. In your friend or family member’s greatest time of need, purchasing a bail bond is an excellent method to get your loved one out of jail as quickly as possible. For they can’t pursue ways to prove their innocence and handle the charges from behind bars and away from you.
What is a Bail Bond?
A bail bond is a way for the person who was arrested – the defendant – to post bail and get out of jail pending their court date. It is essentially a financial guarantee between the bail bond company—Five Star Multiple Services—and the court, ensuring that the defendant will appear in court at a later date if they are released on bail.
How Does a Bail Bond Work?
Sometimes, you can post the full bail amount on your own, but often the bail required is significantly more than most people have on hand, in cash. In these situations, you can call a bail bond company, like Five Star Multiple Services, pay a small percentage of the total bail amount, and have your friend or loved one released on bail within a few short hours.
How Much Does A Bail Bond Cost?
The price of a bail bond depends on the amount of bail required by the court. For any bond below $4000, we require a payment of 15 percent. For bonds above $4000, we require a 10 percent payment. Immigration bonds are slightly different; we require a payment of 15 percent, plus an additional $100 for any immigration bond amount.
