The Colony bail agentsMany people who get arrested have little to no experience with the criminal justice system. In these cases, a person and their family members may not fully understand their requirements for posting bail and getting released. The various myths about bail and the misconceptions people may have about bail bondsmen can add to this confusion. However, with the right bail agent on your side, you can make sure you understand the bail bonds process, and you can help a person get out of jail quickly. As you address issues related to bail, you will want to understand the truth behind the following myths:

Myth #1: A Person Must Pay Cash Bail in Full Before They Can Be Released

When discussing the amount that must be paid before a person can be released from police custody, people often use the term “cash bail.” Because of this, it is understandable that you may think you will need to put down a certain amount in cash. If you do not have significant financial resources, you may feel that there is no way you will be able to come up with thousands of dollars in cash on short notice, and getting out of jail may seem impossible.

However, when you work with a bail bondsman, you will usually only need to pay 10% of the total amount of bail. This amount will not need to be paid in cash or even all at once. At Doc’s Bail Bonds, we accept credit cards, and we can also work with you to create a payment plan without performing any credit checks. If you need time to raise money, we can hold property as collateral. We will work with you to make sure posting bail will be as affordable as possible.
