Arranging LakeWood bail bonds with my company is a very simple procedure.
A LakeWood bail bond fee will cost you 10% of the total amount of bail. As an example, if your bail amount is $20,000; you will be charged $2,000 from the bail bond company. This amount is non-refundable. Bail bond companies are regulated by the LakeWood Department of Insurance. Bail bond fees are established with the DOI so you should be paying the same amount with any LakeWood bondsman. There may be unusual circumstances where extra charges are applied but these charges should all be clearly stated by the bail bond company.
We are able to write most bail bonds with no collateral. I will ask questions to determine the risk involved with the and try to do the bail bond without collateral. I will want to know information about the defendant as well as the indemnitor (person guaranteeing and signing the bond) for example: How long have they been at their current job? How long have they been a part of the community? What type of crime was it?
Collateral is sometimes required by a bail bond company to help ensure that the defendant will appear in court. If for some reason the defendant does not show up for court and cannot be located, the bail bond company will use the collateral to pay a “forfeiture” of the full bail amount. With LakeWood Bail Bonds, collateral may be in the form of LakeWood real estate or cash deposit.
If you have used my bail company and this has happened to you, please call LakeWood Bail Bonds now, so this can be addressed immediately.
A warrant for arrest may be issued if a defendant fails to appear in front of the judge. This is called a “forfeiture”. Usually, a missed court appearance is a simple mistake and can be corrected with a few phone calls. If, however, the defendant is trying to avoid prosecution, the bondsman must locate and return the defendant. In LakeWood , a bail bond company has 6 months to get the defendant back into court. If the bondsman is unable to locate the defendant and bring them back into custody, then they may use a bail recovery person.
