Most of us don’t plan on getting arrested—but if you make a mistake and find yourself in need of a San Antonio bail bonds company, you want to know you’re choosing the one that can guide you smoothly through a difficult time and a potentially confusing process. As in any other industry or service category, not all bail bonds companies are created equal.
If you need to post bail in San Antonio, this is what you should look for in your bail bonds company:
Education Throughout the Process
The criminal justice system is complicated and particular. It helps to work with someone who understands it inside and out and can not only guide you through the process of posting bail and getting out of jail, but also keep you informed along the way. The entire process is less frightening when you know what to expect.
You have enough on your mind as you work to get out of jail and back to your life until your court date. The best bail bonds companies make the process as simple as possible for you so you don’t have to worry about what to do next: each step is carefully and clearly laid out for you.
Texas state law requires a 10% charge for bail bonds. However, not everyone is in a financial position to be able to manage that. We don’t believe anyone should sit in jail simply because they can’t afford bail, and in certain circumstances we issue a credit to help our customers work through an economic difficulty. We also offer senior and military discounts.
This is another way to put the cost of bail within reach: flexible and affordable payment plans help you manage the cost and get your loved one out of jail without facing an immediate financial emergency.
It shouldn’t be difficult to obtain bail bonds information. You need to understand what you’re going to go through, and we’re happy to provide free information, whether you choose to work with us or not.
If you are posting bail for a loved one, and you think there’s a chance he or she won’t show up in court, we do not recommend posting bail for that person. As the co-signer, you are fully liable for the full amount of bail should your loved one fail to report. We want the best possible outcome for everyone involved: that includes keeping your loved one out of jail until the appointed court date as well as watching out for your own financial security. The decision is yours, but if you have doubts, we will not pressure you and will in fact encourage you to think twice before posting.
There For You in Your Worst Moments
Getting arrested is a shock. You’re going to have a lot of worries and concerns: What will your friends think? How will your family manage in your absence? Are you going to lose your job? Is the person posting bail for you angry at you? You might be frustrated, scared, or angry, and you might not always be at your best while you’re working with your bail bonds company. We understand that and respect your feelings and responses without judgment or criticism.
