QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK YOUR BAIL BONDSMAN – PART 2
HOW CAN I SPOT A BAIL BOND SCAM?
Believe it or not, bail bonds are a huge market for scammers who are always waiting to catch someone off guard. Unfortunately, many people aren’t educated on how bail bonds work which makes it a lot easier for them to get money out of you. You should know that bail bondsmen are heavily regulated by the state, so if a company is doing something out of the ordinary, they’re probably a scammer.
DO I NEED TO TURN MYSELF IN?
Before you turn yourself in, it’s important to consider all of your options. It’s usually best to contact both your local bondsman and an attorney who will be able to help you determine the best way forward. You may be able to settle your charges without ever going to jail.
WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS?
Although your attorney will be a better resource to answer this question, your bail bondsman should be pretty well acquainted with the laws surrounding misdemeanors, DUIs, DWIs, and more. Contact Break Free Bail Bonds today to learn more.
WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF MY CO-SIGNER?
You should know that your co-signer also has a lot of responsibilities if they choose to help you out. You should meet with your co-signer and your bail bondsman to ensure everyone is on the same page.
We understand it can be a stressful experience dealing with bail bonds, especially if it’s your first time. And since the bail bond process usually involves three or more parties, your bail bondsman has no control over the actions of the court, jail, defendant, or indemnitor. What we will do, however, is ensure that we hold up our end of the deal by acting quickly and getting the job done right. We’re also here for you anytime you have any questions or concerns.
