The Bail Bond Process
At Smith Bail Bonds, we take pride in making the bail bonds process as simple as possible for the people we serve. We understand that when your loved one has been charged for a crime and is being held, you need all the help you can get. Our team is wholeheartedly dedicated to being there for you every step of the way as your experienced bail bonds advocate and provider. We know how hard it can be when a loved one is detained, so let us help you get them out as soon as possible.
Step One: Information Gathering
The first thing we need to do is make sure we have accurate information regarding the person in jail. Getting detailed and accurate information quickly is crucial to make sure that we don’t run into any unexpected challenges during the bail bonds process. This information includes the charges against your loved one, background information about the individual being detained, family information, and the amount the judge has set to post bond.
Step Two: Bail
After confirming all the details of the charges and jail bond, you’ll pay us a percentage of the bail amount. We will secure the remaining amount of the bail in collateral. Once this step is completed, our experienced bonding agent will post bail for your loved one.
Step Three: Release
Soon after we post bail (usually within six to eight hours), your loved one will be released. As long as they show up to all future court dates and follow the terms of their bail as set by the judge, you owe us nothing more than what you’ve already paid. That is all it takes for your loved one to get out of jail and back to the comfort and safety of their family.
