When a loved one has been arrested, your first priority is getting them out of jail – but the process of posting bail can be complex if you’re not familiar with it. A Pacheco Bonding is here to help. We provide affordable bail bonds and discreet service, and we’re happy to answer your questions and keep you informed throughout the process.
What is a Bail Bond?
By law, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty and have the right to await trial at home; bail provides some assurance that an accused person will return for court after being released from jail. The court will set the bail fee at a certain amount, and someone will need to post bail on the accused’s behalf. This money is held by the court until after the accused has attended all necessary court hearings or trials; afterward, the bail money is returned to the person who posted bail.
Because bail costs can be quite high and are usually an unexpected expense, bail bondsmen exist to provide bail bonds to individuals who cannot pay the cost of bail on their own. A bail bondsman will post bail on your behalf in exchange for a nonrefundable fee of 10% of the bail’s total cost. A Pacheco Bonding offers affordable bail bonding options and financing to qualifying clients, allowing us to accept a lower down-payment in some situations.
