Not all bail bond agencies are alike, but in Indiana, there services they offer are relatively the same across the board. The two primary types of services offered by local bail bond companies are bail bond services and arrest warrant services. Continue reading to learn more about each type of bail bondsman service offered, and how they can help you get out of jail, fast.
Bail Bond Services
It should be obvious that all bail bondsmen can offer their community bail bonds. Bail bonds are basically a financial contract to bail a person from jail on the understanding that if they fail to appear for their court hearing, they forfeit the entire bond amount. The courts mandate how much a person’s bond is after an arrest and a bail bondsman will cover that amount for a non-refundable service fee. If the person misses their court date, they will have a warrant issued for their arrest and ordered to pay the bail bondsman back the entire bond amount. On average, these can range anywhere from $500 to $20,000, and sometimes more. This is why it is never good to skip a court hearing when out on bail. See our blog, “What are the Indiana Bail Bond Rules?” to learn how bail is set, and how much you can expect to pay for bail bond services.
Arrest Warrant Services
If an arrest warrant is issued for a person’s arrest, they are expected to turn themselves in within a permitted amount of time, or the warrant will turn outstanding. Having an outstanding arrest warrant is bad news because it can hinder a person’s quality of life in many ways. They cannot pass a background check for a new job, obtain a drivers’ license, file tax returns, gain admittance into school, and much more. All databases will be alerted of an outstanding arrest warrant, including local law enforcement.
If stopped by police, even just for speeding or a broken taillight, a person with an arrest warrant will be detained and taken to jail on the spot. A reputable bail bond company should be able to offer services for arrest warrants. Hiring a bail bondsman before turning yourself in can ensure a fast and speedy process through the jail. With a bond already in place, a person can be released from jail right after being processed. A good bail bonds agent can obtain a person’s release for a warrant in as little as a few hours.
