Santa Clarita/Valencia and 50 Bail Bonds
An arrest can change everything. It can cost you your job, jeopardize your financial obligations and cause serious problems for your family. Luckily, the 8th Amendment guarantees every American citizen the right to post bail and be released from jail as long as they have not committed a violent crime or threatened to hurt themselves or others. At 50 Bail Bonds, our agents are available whenever you need them. We will help you get your life back on track.
You Are A Priority
At 50 Bail Bonds, our agents know how stressful an arrest can be. There are times when you don't know where to turn, that is why we take our job so seriously. Most arrests occur when we least expect it. When an arrest happens at three in the morning, you are at a distinct disadvantage. The agents at 50 Bail Bonds are ready to go to work any time of the day or night. We know arrests don't happen on a schedule, that's why our offices never close. When you need us, we are always here. If you can't meet with us, we can come to you. We make it a point to be as discreet as possible to protect your privacy and that of your loved one.
We Can Provide A Solution
After an arrest, you need to find a solution that works for everyone involved. We can help you figure out the bet way to handle your situation. Not everyone has the money to bail out a loved one after they have been arrested. That is where we can help. Our agents can evaluate your situation and within a few minutes of filling out the bail bonds application, be able to tell you whether or not you qualify for one of our convenient, zero-interest payment plans. We also accept cash and various forms of property as collateral to secure the bond.
One of the most important things you need to remember about bail bonds, is that it is a constitutional right. As long as your loved one agrees to abide by the rules and stipulations put in place by the court. This means the defendant must appear at all court hearings, have no more problems with the police and report any address or employment changes to the court. Our agents are more than willing to help the defendant accomplish these tasks. We will also attend court with them if that is what they would like for us to do.
Understanding the Bail Bonds Process
If you are talking to the agents at 50 Bail Bonds about posting a bond, you need to understand the process. Once a person has been arrested, they will begin the intake process. This normally takes less than an hour and consists of a statement, being fingerprinted, having their picture taken and having a background check to uncover any additional warrants.
After the intake process is complete, the defendant is held until either bond is posted or an arraignment hearing is held. For most offenses, a bail schedule is used to determine how much will be needed to get the loved one out of jail. In this case, the premium that must be paid for the defendant's release is 10 percent of the total bond amount although in some cases a discount of up to 30% can be applied to clients who qualify. For crimes that are extremely violent or there is a fear that the defendant will flee or harm themselves or others the judge may deny bail and keep the defendant behind bars until their trial.
Once bail has been set, a bail bonds agent can post bail and get the defendant out of jail. The release process takes anywhere from 10-30 minutes. After the release the bail bond agent will inform the defendant of their court date and their rights and responsibilities. After their case is closed, the bail bond will be released to the co-signer. If the defendant fails to appear, however, their bail will be forfeited and the co-signer will be responsible for the full amount owed.
