Bail Bondsman Dallas FAQ

Bail Bondsman Dallas FAQ

What is the bail bond process in Dallas?

In the unfortunate event you are arrested and put in jail custody, the judge or magistrate will set a bail. Bail Bondsman Dallas will supply a document called a bail bond. You or someone you love will pay the premium of the bail, which is the same as the bail bond. In other words, if the bail is set at 10,000.00, the premium is usually 10% of the bail and is the bail bond cost. So the premium and bail bond would be 1000.00. Once the bail bond is paid, you are released from jail custody. And we at Bail Bonds in Dallas guarantee the court you will follow all bail conditions and show to all court proceedings.

What if I can’t afford the bail bond?

If you personally cannot pay with cash, we at Bail Bonds in Dallas will take any form of collateral: houses, automobiles, credit. If someone else co-signs on the bond, he or she is what is called the “indemnitor”. They can use collateral. The collateral will be safe and secure, so long as you are not negligent with bail conditions and do not flee.
