What is a bail bond agent?
- What is better- a bail agent or bail bond agent?
These two titles may look different, but in reality, they mean the same thing. A bail agent is a surety agent and vice versa.
- How much does bail cost?
The pricing depends on the amount of the deposit. In California, surety companies charge 10% of the bond price. If your loved one’s bail is $ 10,000, then it will cost $ 1,000 to pay your bailout using a bail bond company- click here to contact.
- Do you offer discounts?
Yes. We can offer a 20% discount on the bail price if a co-signer is a member of the armed forces, AARP, owns a home, or if the client has a private attorney. With this discount, instead of paying $ 1,000 for the same link, you only have to pay $ 800.
- What is a guarantor or co-signer?
A co-signer is one who is willing to sign for the release of their loved one. The signer is promising that all the money will be paid and that his loved one will go to all his appointments in court. A co-signer assumes responsibility for their loved ones.
- How do I make the payments?
We accept a number of different payment methods. We accept cash, checks, and most credit cards. We also have the ability to accept payments online, by phone, or in person at an office.
- How much I have to pay?
Once again, the cost depends on the price of the bail itself. Initially, you have to pay 10% of the deposit. Depending on the information, you may be able to offer discounts.
- How much do I have to put up front?
Once again, the price varies from case to case and depends enormously on the people who are co-signers of the deposit.
- How long does it take for my loved one to be released?
After the down payment has been received, your loved one can be out in just two hours. However, the time varies from one county to another. The time can vary anywhere from 2 hours to several, depending on the current workload of the jail.
- Can you see if I have a court order?
If we can. If you think there may be an arrest warrant for you, just call Wong Bail Bonds and we will see if they actually have a warrant.
- Who can rescue my friend?
Anyone who cares about their friend that he or she was out of jail can rescue. You do not have to be related to someone he or she was out of jail in distress.
- Can my friend in Nevada be released from jail on bail?
No. In Wong, Bail Bonds are only licensed to rescue people from jail in California. If you want to rescue someone from jail in a state other than California, you will have to contact a bail agent in that state.
- What do you do immigration bonds?
No. There are companies that specialize in this type of bond.
- What happens if I do not bail my friend or family member?
Your loved one would stay in jail until they either found themselves innocent and released or declared guilty and convicted. Until then your loved one has to go to all aspects of the court in an orange suit that does not look good in court.
- If I can not bail someone immediately, how many days do I have to be able to get them out of jail’s predicament?
There is no time limit for the rescue of a friend or member of the prison family. Your loved one can be rescued from jail until he or she has been convicted.
- Is it necessary to give a guarantee?
Most bonds at Wong Bail bonds do not need guarantees. We use your signature as a guarantee in most cases. However, for larger bonds, starting around $ 100,000, you may have to put something as collateral. This varies from case to case and depends largely on the co-signers.
- What happens if I do not make a payment?
If you lose or fail a payment, it’s not a big problem. If you know in advance that you will be late for a payment, let us know. We know that life can be difficult at times and that things that we’re sure a few months ago could have changed. If your budget has changed, we can work with you on the payment and even readjust your payment plan to fit your budget better.
- Can you tell me the reason why my friend or family member was arrested?
If we can. They only give us the name of their friend, the date of birth of the family member, and the county where he or she was detained. We use this information to find your loved one in the county system and to answer any of your questions.
- Do I have to wait until I finish making my final payment before I can be rescued again?
No. We can even adjust the payments on your first deposit to make it easier for you to pay for both.
- If I receive the approval, how much time do I have to make the first payment?
It depends on your individual situation. We adapt our payment plans to work with your budget and situation.
- Will I receive a statement every month?
- What is the guarantee?
The guarantee is something of equal value to the bond that the co-signer puts up to cover the deposit. If the client can not pay the deposit, then the company takes everything that is put as collateral.
- Can I use a payment plan to pay the deposit?
Yes. We create payment plans for all of our clients to help make the bail payment easier. We will work with you to create a personalized payment plan that fits your personal budget. The payments break the high cost of bail into smaller and manageable monthly payments.
