At All Day All Night Bail Bonds, our goal is to help you get people out of jail as quickly and effectively as possible. We don’t think someone should sit in jail any longer than they have to, and so we work hard to make sure they get released quickly. Part of making the process easy is explaining bail bonds and how they work to people. Most folks don’t have a grasp of how the criminal justice system works, because they don’t deal with it every day. We have the experience, and can help answer your questions. In today’s blog post, we’re going to tackle a questions that we hear often. Here is our guide for choosing a bail bondsman in Adams County and across Colorado.
Step One: Find Bail Agents
The first step is to find some bail agents in your area. If this is the first time a loved one has been arrested, then you likely don’t even know how many bail bond companies are in your area. Do a quick online search for bail agents, and ask around for recommendations from friends and family members. Compile a list of potential agents, and then move on to the next step.
Step Two: Check Licensing and the Laws
Next, you need to check the laws in your state and whether or not they require licensing. In Colorado, the Division of Insurance is responsible for “administering and enforcing Colorado Insurance Laws regulating the bail industry.” Then, check to make sure the bail agents on the list you compiled in the last step are licensed and insured to operate in the area where you are bailing someone out of jail. Remove any from the list who are not licensed.
Step Three: Check Online Reviews
The next step is to check online reviews of each bail agent you are researching. Sites such as Google+, Yelp, and the Better Business Bureau are great places to check for honest reviews. And, if a bail agency is BBB certified, it illustrates their dedication to customer service. Look for a bail agency that provides personal feedback for bad reviews. Basically, you want to find an agent who cares about the people he or she is helping.
Step Four: Call Each Prospective Agent
The final step in the process of choosing a bail bondsman is to give each one of them a call. Ask the same questions of each one: How much experience they have, whether or not they’ve worked in the county where your friend or family member is being held, how much their bail bond fee is, whether or not they have payment plans, and any other questions you may have. A good bail agent will take the time to answer all your questions so you are fully informed.
