My family bailed my dad out of jail two weeks ago. His bail was set at $30,000. The bondsman in Danville said the cost would be 10%. He let us put $700 down and we made arrangements to pay $250 a month until we reach the balance. Well, my father was arrested again this morning on a different charge. Will we still need to make payments if he’s back in jail? I’m not sure how this works.
When a person who was released on bail bonds is rearrested, yes, you will still need to pay the Danville bail bonds company you hired to get him out of jail. You will additionally need to pay an additional fee to have him bonded out on the new charge.
People who cosign bail bonds paperwork take on two key responsibilities. The first is that the defendant will go to court when they are supposed to. The second is that the bondsman’s fee will be paid. Sometimes this is done up front, other times it is done over time. A bail bonds contract is a legally binding document so you and your family will want to make sure you review its terms and conditions. Any further questions should be directed toward the agent who initially helped you.
