Bail Bonds F.A.Q.

If you are dealing with the law for the first time, bail might seem like a complicated matter. Many of our customers are unsure about how to get out of jail in Smithfield when they initially call us. The process of getting a bail bond can be difficult to navigate without help, which is why we always have an experienced bail bondsman available to work with you. If you are already at the detention center, we can meet you in the magistrate’s office to discuss the bail bond.

What is a Bail Bond?

This is a payment that the arrested person may be able to make to the court in order to leave jail until trial. The payment is a way that the court can help ensure that the accused will appear at any future court dates.

How Does Bail Work in Smithfield?

One of the most popular questions we hear at our office in Smithfield is “how do bail bonds work?” Though each situation is different, the steps are generally the same.

If he or she is able to, the defendant can pay the bond in cash themselves and be released from jail, but the bond is usually a larger amount than most people keep on hand. This is where a bail bondsman becomes useful.

How Much Does it Cost?

The bail bondsman can pay the fee to get the defendant out of jail, as long as a friend or family member pays 5% flat, call for details!

What is the Cosigners Responsibility once Bail is Posted?

The co-signer attests that the defendant will show up to his or her court date. If the defendant fails to show, the cosigner is held liable for the full amount of the bail. This liability is why it’s important for the cosigner to be sure the defendant is trustworthy before arranging jail release in Smithfield.
