When someone is arrested in Kansas City MO, they and people who love them have many questions about how to get them out of jail. The process can’t start until they have been to their first court hearing and a judge sets a bail amount. Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions about the bonding process.
How to Post a bail bond
There are a couple of main ways to post bond for yourself or someone else. You can pay the entire bail amount directly to the court, either in cash or whatever types of payment they accept. You can offer the court collateral which they will hold title to, or you can use a bail bondsman and pay their fee. When the bail is paid directly to the court, it will be returned when the case is over, whatever the verdict is.
Information a bail bond agent needs to know
When you contact a bail bondsman they will need some information from you about the person you are bonding out. They will need the defendant’s full name and which jail they are in. They also need to know the booking number and the bail amount, but they are able to get this information if you don’t have it. Once the bail amount is known you will be able to find out how much their fee is, which is a percentage of the bond amount. This fee is non-refundable, because it covers the cost of their service. It also can’t be discounted because the stated mandates the amount and a bondsman could lose their license if they discount the fee.
Kinds of collateral accepted for bail
Courts and bondsmen have their own guidelines for what they will accept as collateral. The most common types in Kansas City MO are real estate, vehicles, jewelry, and personal credit.
What if you think the defendant will not show for court
If you begin to suspect that the defendant is not going to be in court when they’re scheduled to, you can either notify the court, or the bail bondsman. You will be advised as to what your options are.
