Bills don’t stop coming just because you’ve been arrested. Even though you’re in jail and facing criminal charges, it doesn’t mean you’re landlord doesn’t want their monthly rent, that the bank will forgive your car loan, or that your other bills will simply disappear. What it could mean is that you’ll lose your home, car, and good credit rating.
The good news is that there is a way to prevent yourself from losing everything. All you have to do is post bail. Doing that immediately gets you released from jail so that you can go to work, continue earning a weekly paycheck, and stay on top of your monthly bills.
The problem that some people face is that even though they would really like to post bail and work, they simply don’t have the funds needed to cover their bail. That’s where we come into the picture. We help you with bail so that you can get yourself to work.
The way our program works is if you can’t afford the entire 10% we charge as a fee, we’ll set up a payment plan for you. The great thing about our payment plan is that in addition to being zero-down, zero interest, it’s also flexible. That means you can set it up so that your payments to us coincide with your weekly paycheck.
In some cases, when the bail is low, we’re happy to allow you to skip the process of having you include a co-signer or put up collateral if you can prove that you have a full-time income.
One of the questions you’ll need to ask when you’re released from jail is whether or not you have a curfew while you’re out on bail. If you’re told that yes, you do have a curfew, you’ll have to work with the court to make sure that your work schedule doesn’t clash with your curfew and create additional legal troubles for you, which could end with your bail getting revoked.
Since one of the biggest conditions in the bail bond contract you sign is that you agree to attend all of your mandatory court appointments, it’s important to give your employer a great deal of advanced warning about upcoming court dates so that they can schedule those commitments. Remember, missing a single court appearance will get your bail revoked.
