Helping Austin Residents Understand What Bail Bonds Are
If you watch a lot of movies and television shows, you’ve probably seen people get bailed out of jail after an arrest, but have you ever wondered how that process works? Once a person is taken into police custody in Austin or other communities, the ensuing time can be stressful and humiliating, and it can be a welcome respite just to sleep in a familiar setting again. For more than 15 years, the compassionate and professional staff at Austin Bail Bonds has worked hard to free people from temporary incarceration, and we’re ready to answer any questions you might have about this misunderstood process, including how does a bail bond work?
So, what are bail bonds? Simply put, a bond is the money put up to get you out of jail after being arrested. When a judge sets your bail at $10,000, you can either put the money up yourself in cash or head to a bondsman who will take a 10 percent deposit to pay the entire amount in your name. If you don’t make your court date, a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest. We offer assistance with all types of bonds, so you can feel free to call us in any situation:
- Immigration cases
- Open warrants
- State charges
- Other criminal issues
