If you’ve never been asked to help arrange bail bonds before you probably have a lot of questions about how the process works. Be sure to keep these three important facts in mind.
Bail bonds fees are non-refundable no matter what happens in court. Many clients assume that the money they pay to the bondsman will be returned as long as the defendant finishes their case. This is not true. The fee you pay to the Imperial County bail bonds agency is considered to be earned in full once the defendant is released from jail. It is not refundable in part, or in full, regardless as to what happens with the case.
Not all bail bonds need to be paid up front, in full. Some companies allow their clients the option to pay off Imperial County Jail bail bonds fee over time. If you need help with a bail bonds payment plan be sure to hire a company that is best able to help based on your unique financial situation.
You may not need to pay for the bail bond in cash. Some companies that offer bail bonds in El Centro allow clients to pay using a debit or credit card. Some even allow clients to pay using a personal check. Be sure to ask about how you’ll need to make payment before you sign any documents.
