At Wanna Get Out Bail Bonds, our goal is to be as helpful as possible to those who have found themselves in the middle of a difficult and unfamiliar situation. We know exactly how stressful it can be to find that a loved one has been arrested and that it’s up to you to post that person’s bail.

In today’s post, we’d like to take an in-depth look at one of the questions we get asked most often–“do you have to work with a bondsman?” If you’ve been wondering about this topic, then today’s post is for you. Keep reading to learn more!

How Bail Works

When a person gets arrested, they go before a judge who will take a look at the evidence presented to them and determine whether or not that person is eligible for bail. How does the judge decide that, you ask? That’s a great question as well, and fortunately for you, we covered that very topic in our most recent blog.

We’d highly recommend checking it out for yourself, but we’ll quickly sum it up for you. In short, the judge looks at a number of different factors including the person’s criminal history, chance of fleeing, type of crime committed, and how that person treats the judge. Of course this isn’t a definitive list, but in general, these are the main things a judge will be looking at.

If the judge decides that the person in question is eligible to make bail, he or she will then set an amount. The amount set also depends on a number of factors (and that’s a topic that we’ll take a look at in a future blog as well).

The Bail Is Set

Once bail is set, it will need to be paid in order for the person who was arrested to be released from jail. To answer the question of whether or not you need to use a bondsman or a bail bond agency, the simple answer is no. If you have the money to pay for that person’s bail, you can simply pay that amount and get the person released. This isn’t always the best idea, however.

You see, there are a number of factors to consider. In many instances, it just makes financial sense to enlist the help of a bail bond agency to help you. At Wanna Get Out Bail Bonds on Oahu, we happily provide free bond advice and we work 24/7.
