When someone you know is in jail and asking for your help, you need answers fast.
You can arrange a bail bond by calling us at (203) 777-2245(BAIL). We will guide you through the process and get your loved one released as quickly as possible.
Bail is the constitutional right permitting the release of a defendant from custody (by The United States Judicial Court).
A bail bond is a written promise to the court ensuring that the defendant will appear at all court ordered appearances.
You will need the fee, cosigner(s), driver’s license or state ID, and collateral (if deemed necessary).
A Surety Bond Agent is a bail bond agent, licensed through the State of Connecticut Department of Insurance and appointed by an insurance company, to post criminal and motor vehicle bonds with the courts.
A surety bail bond is one in which a licensed Surety Bail Bond Agent posts a bond with the Judicial Court to guarantee appearances by the Defendant.
Cash Bonds must be posted directly to the court and paid in full. Surety Bond fees are 7-10% of the bail bond, making bail more affordable, often ensuring quicker release from jail, enabling the Defendant to resume normal activities, return to work, and seek private counsel if desired.
You need the defendant’s full name, location, and date of birth (if known).
A bail bond can be posted in any court, jail, or correctional facility.
Bail bonds can be posted at jails 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Courthouses and correctional facilities have limited hours. Call us at (203) 777-2245 (BAIL) to arrange for immediate service.
Collateral is something of value required to post a bail bond. This could be in the form a signature by a cosigner/s guaranteeing the defendant’s appearances in court, cash, real property, or land. In most cases, signature(s) of cosigner(s) is sufficient.
Collateral is returned when the case is terminated. Written documentation by the depositor with an original signature must be sent with the defendant’s name in order for collateral to be returned. Collateral will be returned within 21 days of receiving notice that the case is terminated.
A cosigner or indemnitor is a third party who signs an agreement with the Surety Bail Bond Agent ensuring the defendant’s court appearances until the final disposition of the case.
If a bail bond is not posted, the defendant will be arraigned before a judge on the soonest day court is in session. At court, the judge may raise, lower, or maintain the bond amount as originally ordered. A bail bond may be posted at court following an arraignment. However, if bail is not made, the defendant will be transferred to a correctional facility and remain there until a bail bond is posted or the case is over.
Notify us immediately at (203) 777-2245 (BAIL) if the Defendant fails to appear in court. It is the fiduciary responsibility of the cosigner to ensure the Defendant appears at all court dates appointed. Failure to comply with contractual obligations is subject to possible recovery fees and/or expenses associated with such, as well as payment for the forfeiture of the bail bond.
A court date is given upon the Defendant’s release from jail. At every court appearance, a new date will be given in writing. COURTS do not send “reminder” notices for upcoming dates.
There is absolutely NO excuse for failing to appear in court. Failure to appear in court results in a court ordered warrant signed by a judge who will set a new bail amount. If the Defendant is sick, he/she must report to court as ordered and request a postponement of a new court date with the prosecutor.
IF GRANTED, THIS MUST BE PUT IN WRITING TO PROVE YOUR COURT APPEARANCE AND ENSURE A REARREST WARRANT IS NOT ISSUED.
