Did someone you love get arrested? If so, you are probably wondering what you can do to get them out of jail as soon as possible. When it comes to getting someone out of jail before their court date, there are three things you can do, and we have listed them below for you to read.
Pay the Full Bond Amount
When an individual’s bail amount is posted by the judge, it is the amount that needs to be paid for them to get out of jail. A cash bond is referred to as paying the full amount to the court. The cash bond is not always ideal for most families because the bail amount is usually set at a high dollar amount.
When it comes to the term surety bond, it is a more technical way to refer to bail bonds. You will need to reach out to a trusted bail bondsman to secure a bail bond for your family member sitting in jail. You do not have to pay the full amount of the bail when you go to a bail bond company. You will only have to pay a certain percentage of the bond.
Instead of paying a percentage of the bail bond, you use land or your home as collateral.
Our team can explain each of these three options to you over the phone or in person. To learn more about bail bonds in Arapahoe County, Colorado, please call (303) 571-0385 today.
