What Is Bail?
After an arrest, a judge or magistrate can set an amount of money that can be paid in order to secure your release until your court date. This amount is called bail.
The amount of bail is based on two primary factors: flight risk and danger to the community. Judges try to be consistent, but bond amount vary significantly in different jurisdictions and are also affected by the seriousness of the charge(s), any previous criminal record, whether you’ve ever failed to appear for trial before, and your standing in the community.
If the judge or magistrate determines no amount of bail could satisfy the Commonwealth you will appear for your court dates and not harm the community while out, they may deny bond entirely. In most cases, however, some amount of bail will be set.
Often, bail is set at thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. What happens when you want to post bail but can’t afford it? You call A-1 Affordable Bail Bonds of Martinsville, VA.
How We Make Bail Bonds Affordable
Here at A-1 Affordable Bail Bonds, our goal is in our name! We want to make it affordable for everyone in Henry County to post bail. How do we do that? We do so by offering bail bonds.
Bail bonds are a different method for paying bail. Rather than being forced to pay the full amount, which might not be possible for many, bail bonds allow you to pay a portion of the bail. This amount secures you a bail bond and is often referred to as a bail bond premium or fee.
You pay this amount — generally 10% of the total bail amount — to a bail bondsman. The bail bondsman will then post the total bail amount owed on your behalf. The bail bondsman keeps the bail premium you paid and gets their money back when you return to court.
The beauty of a bail bond is that what was previously out of reach becomes entirely attainable. Not only that, but your bail bondsman will help you navigate the waters of the justice system. This means you get out of jail quickly and for a price you can afford.
