Everyday Is Important. Bail Out Today.

As a new parent, you probably learned that being there for your child as they grow up is absolutely critical to how they develop and the person they become. Even being absent momentarily can leave a little bit of an unwanted mark. Being around for your child’s everyday routines is just as important as being there for major holidays, their birthdays, their dance recitals and sports games. You should never make your child miss you and think that you don’t love them.

Getting serious… we’re talking about jail. Obviously you should never let commit a crime and get arrested. But not everyone is perfect and some parents do end up in jail...

Why Is Bail So Darn Expensive?

call-palmdale-bailbonds

Bail is so darn expensive because it acts as an incentive for the defendant to comply with all of his or her release terms and conditions; including showing up to court as scheduled. If the defendant honors this agreement, he or she will receive his or her bail money back. If the bail is a large amount, then you can understand that the defendant will be way more inclined to honor the agreement than if the bail was only $50. The bail amount is not just a random number that the judge decides. There are factors in each case that the judge must consider:

  • The defendant’s relationship with others within the community. If the defendant has close ties and relationships with others, they are less likely to flee. These friends and family members will most likely know the defendants whereabouts.

Bail Amount is X Amount of Dollars, but Feels like $0

call-palmdale-bailbonds

The literal price for a bail bond will eventually become priceless. A bail bond will cost you 10% of the full bail amount, and the full bail amount is determined by the judge who evaluates the defendant’s crime, relationships in the community, and past criminal history. So if the judge sets the bail at $50,000, the bail bond will only be $5,000.

For most people, that is still a lot of money to pay with cash, check, or credit card. However, knowing that your loved one’s reputation and freedom is at stake, that $5,000 is nothing. Not only are you guaranteeing his or her freedom, you are also giving the opportunity to return to work, to be with supportive friends and family, and to have as normal of a life as possible. Jail is not a place where anyone wants to be.
