Bail Bond 101: The Very First Steps

judge gavel - Bail Bond 101: The Very First StepsPosting a bail bond for a loved one may feel like a scary process, especially if this is the first time you’ve ever gone through it.  It’s because of this, that all of us at Morey and Crow make every effort possible to ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.  We are available 24/7 to answer any of your bail bond questions before you make any decisions that will put you under a financial obligation.

When you call us, the first thing to expect is a conversation.  It is our job to help you, and the best way we do that is simply by listening to you.  We will give you all the time you need to completely explain the situation to us, along with any concerns you may have about what is happening. There are no dumb questions.  We want to make sure you understand exactly what you are dealing with and know all your options in the bail bond process.

Once we learn about your particular situation, some of the details we will explain to you include:

  • Exactly how the bond process will work for you
  • How much you will have to pay right now to bond someone out of jail
  • What you will have to sign and what obligations come with that

Beyond the Bond

Arranging for a loved one to be bonded out of jail is only the first step.  As bail bondsmen, our job doesn’t end once the bond fee is paid.  When you come to us to discuss your specific situation, we will be happy to explain what happens AFTER the bond is posted.

Some of these details we will go over with you include:

  • What it means if the person you’re bonding out of jail doesn’t show up to court
  • Your options to help prevent you from having to pay the entire bond if you think they might not appear
  • If you can’t bond them out, the other ways you can support a loved one in jail
  • When you should consider NOT bailing a person out
