Have you Been Arrested in Woodland?
Getting arrested is no party and if you have been hauled into jail in Woodland, chances are they have set bail for you. If you don’t pay it, you will have to stay in jail until your arraignment. That could be a long time, and most people want to get out fast so they can get back to life in the meantime. If bail is set high and you can’t afford to pay it, it is a good time to call a bail bond agent. During or after booking, you are allowed to make a phone call. This person should be someone who can help you arrange your bail, and should have your best interest at heart.
How do I Arrange Bail While in Jail?
The person you call will have to help you get bail. You will need to tell them important information such as your full name, what jail you are in, your address, birth date, and amount of bail. It is best to use an experienced and reputable bail bond agent such as Leonard Padilla Bail Bonds. Leonard Padilla has been helping people get out of jail of over 30 years in the Woodland area, and our agents know how to handle almost every situation. If the person can’t come to our office, we can arrange the paperwork using the phone, fax, and e-mail.
How Does a Bail Bond Work in Woodland?
You may be wondering things like “How do they pay my bail?” “Do I have to pay for the bond?” “Are bail bond agents licensed?” We at Leonard Padilla Bail Bonds are experts in our business and we will explain everything to you. Being a bail bond agent in California does require a license and our company is registered with the California Insurance Commission. All of our agents are licensed professionals and are helpful and understanding of your situation. We are required by state law to charge a fee or premium of 10% of the bail. This is the requirement for all bail bond agents in California. In some cases 8% is allowed, but only if you have retained a lawyer, are s U.S. veteran, or are in a union. The bail is paid by us and our surety company partner.
The Bail Bond Contract
When you get a bail bond in Woodland, CA, you will need to sign a contract that involves the bail bond agent, the defendant, and a co-signer. The co-signer is someone who can vouch for the defendant and is responsible for the entire bail if the defendant does not show up for court. As long as the defendant attends all of their court hearings, the bail will be exonerated (forgiven) after the case is over. If the defendant does not show up and cannot be found, bail will be forfeited (retained) by the court, and the co-signer now becomes liable to pay the full amount to the bail bond agent. If the defendant simply oversleeps, or forgets, all is not lost. As long as the person contacts the court to let them know, a new hearing will be scheduled. Just make sure you show up! The court gives you 6 months to come back to court if you have missed a hearing. If you do not appear after that, they will keep the bail.
What Happens if the Premium too High?
Sometimes even the fee is more than people can afford to pay to the bail bond agent. In this case, it is no problem if you hire Leonard Padilla Bail Bonds. We have flexible programs in which we can set up a workable schedule, and you can pay over time. You will be pleasantly surprised how easy it is to get a bail bond with us, and our agents are caring and knowledgeable. We will let you know what is going on every step of the way, and make sure that we do everything needed to get you out of jail fast.
