Learning The Truth About Bail Bonds

When it comes to bail bonds, we at Amistad know that there is quite a bit of confusion floating around. What are bail bonds for? What type of down payment will I need? How soon can my loved one be released from jail with a bail bond? What happens if they fail to appear in court? Before getting a bail bond, it’s always best to know just what bail bonds are all about, and to have your questions answered in a way that leaves you feeling confident about the choice to seek a bail bond for any number of reasons.

What Can Bail Bonds Be Used For?

At Amistad, we can post bail for your loved one when they are apprehended for any number of alleged offenses. Whether a DUI offense, domestic abuse offense, solicitation of prostitution, or any other offense that allows bail to be posted, we can help you to get your loved one home sooner. Also, we at Amistad can post bails of any size, even small bail amounts in the range of a couple hundred dollars.

What Types Of Down Payments And Rates Can I Expect?

The down payment’s exact amount will depend on the amount of the bail, but typically a down payment will be in the 15% range. If you have property of value, placing a lien on this property as collateral can serve as a down payment, allowing you a 0% down payment as far as physical cash goes.

When it comes to rates, these will vary from person to person, but we at Amistad do not charge interest on your premium. With low down payments, it’s much easier to pay back the bail amount over time.
