For some reason, people think that bail bonds agencies are the bad guys in the justice system. We suspect that this has to do with how we’re portrayed in books, movies, and television. The problem with this bad reputation (even though it’s completely undeserved) is that many people who would benefit from our services never contact us.
The truth is that if you or a loved one has been arrested, there are several reasons you should contact Santa Monica Bail Bond Store
The most compelling reason to get in touch with us as soon as you realize that you or a loved one needs bail is because we make the process affordable. No, you don’t get the entire amount of bail back when you use us the way you would if you posted bail yourself. We keep a 10% fee. But that’s all we keep, just 10%. By deciding to use us you don’t have to choose between being able to buy groceries or pay your utility bill and staying in jail. And before you gather all of your hard-earned savings and use it to post your bail yourself, consider that it could be months or even a year before your case is completed and you’ll get that money back.
We offer payment programs. That means that even if you don’t have the 10% available, we’re willing to work with you to come up with a zero percent interest payment plan that allows you or your loved one to leave jail and also remain on solid financial footing.
We are a great source of information. Getting answers from the court about what you can and can’t do while you’re out on bail isn’t as easy as you might think. We understand all the terms of your bail and will be able to provide you with answers about if you have a curfew, where you can go, where you can’t go, and even the people you shouldn’t be seeing while you’re out on a California bail bond.
By contacting us and signing a bail bond contract, you can continue working and keep some money in your savings account. This means that if you decide you don’t want to use a public defender, you’re free to use some of the money that you have since you didn’t have to pay the full bail and use it to offset your legal fees and hire a better lawyer.
