When an offender is detained, he or she will have to spend time in prison while awaiting a bail hearing. This hearing is a process in which the court will determine the amount of bail that serves as a guarantee to the court for the temporary liberty of the defendant.

Fortunately, {it is possible to enlist the services of|you can make use of the services of a bonding company to cover the amount.

We will help you find reputable bail bondsmen in New York City that can make sure that you or your loved ones can be out of prison, at the very least until the sentencing.

Use a bail bond to gain temporary freedom after getting arrested

The judicial system permits a commercial bonding company to put up a bail bond, also called surety bond, to help those apprehended and charged with a crime get temporary freedom while waiting for their court hearing.

The legal system allows two sorts of bail -- a criminal bail bond as well as a civil bail bond.

To be clear, a court does not require a criminal bail bond to penalize you for your alleged crime. You are still innocent till proven guilty. Nonetheless, the judge needs to have an assurance that you will show up at trial to face your accuser; thus, the need to post bail. If you show up at all of your scheduled criminal proceedings as promised, and you are in the end found not guilty, the bail will be repaid to you. If you are found guilty, the bail will be used to cover the penalties and fines that the court might enforce on you. If you skip the court hearings, the bail will be lost and you will be subject to arrest.

On the other hand, the civil bail bonds imposed on civil cases work as an assurance or a surety with the court where the financial obligations, interests, and charges imposed on the defendant can be taken from.

A bondsman is your link to freedom

A bondsman is your quick link to freedom after your arrest. When you don't possess enough money to bail yourself out and gain temporary liberty, your best course of action is a trusted bail bondsman that will post the bail on your behalf. Most bail bondsmen ask a fee of 10% of the bail amount. That is just reasonable, taking into account the risk the bondsman is taking in providing the money. If you fail to appear at trial, the judge will forfeit the bail put up by the bonding company. In any case, you do not need to bother yourself with the financial calculations now. Your most pressing concern is to get yourself released from jail, and a trustworthy bondsman can make that happen for you.

Furthermore, you need not trouble yourself with the complex judicial process in posting bail as the bail bondsman will take care of that to facilitate your release from jail. The only thing that needs to be done is for you or someone else to get in touch with a reputable bail agent. That person will propose you a deal, proposing to post your bail to get you out of jail in return for a small fee. With your consent, the bonding company will then put up the bail in your place, releasing you from jail.

You still have to go to your court hearing though. However, you will be appearing in court in civilian clothes and not in a jail jumpsuit. That could increase your self-confidence as you defend yourself from your accuser. Furthermore, the judge presiding over your case will tend to have a more favorable impression of you, rather than if you were to arrive in court being dressed in jail attire, seeming like you're already guilty of the criminal offense you're charged with even before the judge could make a ruling. You can give thanks your bondsman for arranging this.
