The ability to post bail is an important keystone in the American legal system. When accused of a crime, it can take a significant amount of time for the prosecution to gather evidence which can push back the date of your trial. In order for those accused of a crime to be able to return to their lives, judges will set a price for bail. Understanding online bail bonding services can allow people to decide if it’s the right option for them.
Online bail bonding services allow people to be able to apply for a bail bond 24 hours a day. The process will have people sign online documents and agree to the company’s terms prior to receiving the bond.
Most services require a downpayment that is typically 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount set by the judge. In addition to this down payment, the accused must also put up a high-value asset as collateral, such as a home, vehicle, or property. If the accused fails to return to court on their assigned date, this asset will be passed and further legal repercussions will impact the individual.
