Your loved one has been arrested. The jailer says something about “bail,” but you are still just trying to wrap your head around how your loved one was accused of committing the crime they were charged with. There is nothing you want to do more than talk to them in person, but you don’t know how to do that. You’ve heard on police shows the word “bail” before, but until the jailer mentioned it today, you wrote it off as something that happened only on TV. Well, the good news is that you are lucky enough to live in a state where bail bonds exist and even more fortunate to live in a state that Lederman Bail Bonds has been assisting clients in the very same situation as yourself, and your loved one, since 1965.
Cash or Surety Bond
The jailer says that your loved one has a “cash or surety” bond. This means you can either take the bond amount straight to the jail or you can use Lederman Bail Bonds, where you pay a small, non-refundable fee, usually, 10% of the bond amount and we will post the full bond amount for your loved one. Your loved one will be out of jail after a Lederman agent posts the bond.
Cash Only Bond
But what if the jailer says it is a “cash only” bond. Slightly different story, but Lederman Bail Bonds can still help. Either you can pay the bond in full to the jail, or you can pay Lederman Bail Bonds a non-refundable fee based on the bond amount, and we will post the cash bond for your loved one. Your loved one will be out of jail soon after a Lederman agent posts the cash bond.
On occasion, no bond has been set, or the courts determine no bond is permitted. Talking to your lawyer or public defender about this situation is best.
It is also possible that at this time you cannot afford to pay the full non-refundable fee to use Lederman’s services. Not to worry! Lederman Bail Bonds will happily consider setting up a payment plan with you that takes into consideration your financial abilities. The end goal is to get your loved one out of jail.
There is one last bond that Lederman Bail Bonds can help you with: appeal bonds. Appeal bonds are unique because they only happen after your loved one has been sentenced. We can only post the appeal bond if one has been set by the court, and a notice of appeal has been filed. After that, you can either take the bond amount straight to the courts, or you may use Lederman Bail Bonds where you pay us a small, non-refundable fee, usually, 10% of the bond amount and we will post the full bond amount for your loved one.
Next month we will discuss the indemnification agreement and requirements. Thanks for reading. Please call with any questions you may have or find your Lederman Bail Bonds agent.
