How to Get Out of Jail - Bail Bonding Process

TERMS & CONDITIONS
Co-signer may be required to guarantee the defendant's appearance by providing collateral for the entire bond amount. In most situations collateral is not required. When collateral is required, it will be returned after the defendant's case is exonerated. Exoneration of charges is the full release of a person from his/her court case(s). It means the person has appeared in court at all required times and has satisfied the court with regards to the final sentencing and determination on all charges. The court releases the bail company from all financial responsibility, and then our agency will release the co-signer from financial responsibility on the bond. Any collateral held or any property recorded for this bond will be returned.
If the defendant misses a court date, the court usually allows the Bail Bonds Agency time to 'correct' the situation before the bail money is forfeited. Failing to appear in court at the appropriate time and place will result in a bench warrant being issued. By choosing the professionals at American Bail Bonds we are able to assist you with our knowledge of the court system and can suggest your best approach with the courts. Please notify us immediately if your defendant fails to appear for any court date. We work for you and want to help you in any way possible.
If a defendant misses a court date and we are unable to contact either the defendant or the co-signor after several attempts, they will be considered a fugitive and we will be required to deploy Fugitive Recovery Agents to arrest the fugitive and return him/her to jail. The bail bond agency has the authority to apprehend this person and place them into custody, which protects the bail bond company and bail bond co-signer(s).
** Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution specifies that bail must not be excessive. Bail should not simply raise money for the government or financially punish citizens accused (not convicted) of a crime. Bail allows defendants to remain free on bond until their court appearance to mount their defense against the arrest charges. It’s difficult to prove you're innocent from behind bars!
