If you’ve been following along with our last couple of blogs, you’ve probably seen that we have been taking a look at the different types of bail bonds available. In those posts, we covered cash bonds as well as transfer bonds.
To recap, a cash bond is, as its name implies, a bond that you pay for completely in cash. They’re flexible, and the detainee can pay the cash bond, as can a third party like a friend, family member, co-worker, or bond agency. A transfer bond is useful for when someone from one state gets arrested in another state. The person who was arrested can have a bail bond agency in his or her home state facilitate the process of being released.
Obviously there’s more to it than that, and you can check out the respective posts for each of those different types of bonds to learn more. But that leaves us with another very common type of bond — the surety bond. What is that? Whether you’ve heard of it or not, it just might prove to be helpful for your specific situation. Keep reading to learn more about surety bail bonds.
Is a Surety Bond Right For You?
Surety bonds can be confusing, but we’ll do our best to break them down for you. Basically, a surety bail bond is one in which a person who has been arrested can be released from jail as long as there is some sort of financial surety (in other words, a guarantee), that the person in question can make payments.
When a surety bond is chosen, if you’re a friend, relative, or loved one of the person being arrested, we’ll coordinate the entire process with you. In most instances, we’ll have you sign a promissory note stating that you will be liable for the full bail amount if the person you’re bailing out decides to skip. In other words, it’s a good idea if you know for certain that the person you’re helping isn’t a flight risk.
Generally speaking, surety bonds are appropriate for instances in which there is a relatively low bail amount, but there are some instances in which that’s not the case. Although it’s confusing, if a surety bond is the right solution to your specific situation, you can count on us to let you know about it. We’ll fill you in on all of the details when the time comes, ensuring that you know the ins and outs of our agreement.
