At 1st Assured Bail Bonds, we realize that you may not be familiar with what a bond means. A person who has been arrested and charged with a crime may be required to post a bail bond before being released from jail. A bond is an insurance to guarantee that an arrestee will appear in court for his or her trial. If that person fails to appear for a court date, the bond money is forfeited. Most crimes are bondable offenses except for capital crimes. The amount of a bond is determined by a judge or from an established schedule depending on the crime.
A bond can be posted in cash by an arrestee, but more often than not, people want a bond to be posted by someone on his/her behalf. 1st Assured Bail Bonds is here to help those that want to do just that and get help figuring out the best solution for their situation.
