Custom contracts can be created to accept a series of installment payments over time or even to use valuables and collateral like jewelry, a car, or a house as security.
Since bail bonds companies are independently owned, the agents or owners will decide whether collateral is acceptable after reviewing your case with you. Along with your past court appearances, they may also look at your credit history, employment history, source of income, and if you have a co-signer.
Can You Use A Credit Card To Bail Yourself Out Of Jail?
For bail, only cash is accepted. You won’t be able to use a credit card if all you have is it and you don’t have the cash on hand to pay the whole bail sum at the time of the arrest. You can either employ a bail bond company and pay 10% of the total bail charge to the bondsman, which is a non-refundable amount, or you can call a friend or member of your family to come to pay the fee on your behalf.
Why Are You Unable To Bail Yourself Out Of Jail?
If you want to bail yourself out immediately, you must have cash on hand. The average person does not have enough cash on hand to pay a bail bond, which can cost anywhere from $500 to $10,000 and more.
