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.

Frisco bail bond collateralBeing arrested and charged with a crime can be a scary experience, and a person will often be worried about whether they will be able to be released from jail quickly. One major concern that can affect a person or their friends or family members is how to afford the amount of bail set by the judge in their case. Fortunately, by using a bail bond, a person can get out of jail without being required to pay the full amount of bail. 

In most cases, a bail bond will only cost 10% of the total bail amount. However, it can sometimes be difficult to put together this amount of money. In these cases, a person or their family members may turn over collateral to be held by a bail bondsman until they can raise the necessary funds. Collateral may include any items of value, including:

  • Real estate - A home or piece of land is often among the most valuable property owned by a person. To use real estate as collateral, a deed of trust will need to be filed giving authority over the property to the bail bond company, and a lien will usually be placed on the property. Usually, the equity a person owns in their property will need to be equal to or greater than the amount of bail.

There are many situations where a person may be accused of domestic violence, which is usually referred to as “family violence” in Texas criminal cases. In some cases, arguments between spouses, unmarried couples, or other family members can get out of control, and the police may be called to deal with the situation. If a person is accused or suspected of committing family violence, they may be arrested and taken into police custody. Following an arrest, a person will need to understand how they can post bail and get out of jail, as well as other issues that may affect them during their criminal case.

Family Violence Charges in Texas

Most of the time, when a person is arrested for family violence in Texas, they will be charged with domestic assault. This offense may apply if a person intentionally injured a person in their family or household or threatened to inflict injuries. Domestic assault charges may also apply in cases where someone made physical contact with a member of their family in a way that would offend or provoke that person. This means that multiple types of actions could lead to a family violence arrest, ranging from physical abuse to simply poking someone in the chest.

Denton County bail bonds issuer felony

Anyone who is arrested and charged with a crime will want to understand how they can get out of jail as quickly as possible. However, the procedures followed when posting bail may be different depending on the crimes with which a person is charged. For misdemeanors and low-level offenses, a judge will often set smaller amounts of bail, or a person may even be released on a personal bond. Since felony charges are more serious, bail will often be set at higher amounts, and other restrictions may be placed on a person before he or she can be released. Fortunately, no matter the offense, a person can usually obtain a bail bond that will allow him or her to get out of jail and get back to normal life while determining how to defend against the criminal charges he or she is facing.

Felony Offenses

The Texas Penal Code defines a wide variety of criminal offenses that are considered felonies. These are serious crimes, and a conviction can result in a prison sentence of at least one year. Felonies are grouped into different “degrees,” and higher-degree felonies will carry more serious consequences. Because of this, a person charged with a felony will usually be required to pay higher amounts of bail before they can be released.
