How Does The Bail Bonds Process Work?

Step 1

Bail is set

The court sets bail, and bail needs to be posted in order for the defendant to be released. This amount will vary based on the crime you’re being tried for, as well as any past criminal offenses. Your bail amount may also be affected if the court perceives that you, the defendant, may not return for your hearing.
The bail process is utilized by the court system as a way of making sure that the defendant will appear before the court on their scheduled date after they are released. Regardless of the outcome of the hearing, the bail will be returned to the individual who paid it as long as the defendant appears before the court.

Step 2

Contact Us

After the amount is set, the next step is to get in touch with one of the bail bond agents at Golden Bear Bail Bonds in Fresno, CA. A bail bondsman will answer any questions you may have about how bail bonds work and will gather the information necessary to initiate the process. 

This will involve the name of the defendant, the name of the jail, and the city the jail is located within. After this, we will contact the jail and get the remaining information necessary, such as the defendant’s booking number. We will keep you updated, and make sure all the communication is transparent. For us, your satisfaction is a priority, we ensure you get premium support throughout the journey.

Step 3

Payment Plans and Release

Once we have all the information required, we will get in touch with you again to settle on a flexible payment plan. Collateral is rarely required, and we will not ask in most of the situations. However, in case the bail amount is very high, or the defendant’s charges are quite serious, we may require a little collateral as a security. 

This is just to deliver the best services we can. If it is a smaller item we may take possession of it, and if it is an item such as a vehicle or property we will take the pink slip or deed into our trust until the bail is exonerated, the charges are dropped, the defendant is found innocent, or the defendant is sentenced. 

Again, collateral is not required in most cases, and we will work with you to ensure we find the best possible solution for you. Once we have received all the information required and we have agreed on a payment plan or collateral to be taken, we will process the bail and have your friend, family member, or loved one released as soon as we possibly can so they can return home. While they may not be released instantly, we will begin the process to have them released immediately so there will not be a single second of precious time with them lost.
