My roommate was arrested this morning on felony DUI charges and the bondsman I called said they need four cosigners and $1,000 down. My roommate doesn’t want to involve her family and we were hoping that I could sign on my own. I have a good job and I have good credit. Do all bail bonds companies require multiple cosigners?
This more depends on who you’re working with. Some companies require one highly-qualified cosigner (steady employment, strong credit score) while others want multiple cosigners who can provide paystubs. You mention you have a good job and good credit—what type of work do you do and how old are you? A person in their early 20s with a 700+ credit score is a much different signer than someone who is more established, a little bit older and has the same credit score. In this case, you may want to call several different Imperial County bail bonds companies to see what your options are.
