If someone that you know is in jail then you can get them released by posting bail for them and the only thing that you will need to do is to pay the whole amount of bail. The problem that many people face is that the amount of bail is high and they cannot afford it so they get a bail bond. A bail bond is offered by a surety bond company that pays the bail amount to the court in case the defendant does not show up to court.

Of course no surety bond company in Valdosta or anywhere will pay that much money for any defendant. What they do is take 10% of the bail amount immediately from a relative or friend of the defendant who is willing to pay and the other 90% is covered by collateral offered by that same relative or friend.

In case any of your loved ones ever get charged with a crime and get thrown in jail, you should know how to get a bail bond to get them out of there as quickly as possible.

Contact Surety Bond Company

The first thing that you need to do is to contact a surety bond company. Before you talk to an agent, you need to remember that he/she will ask you a number of questions about the whole situation. They would ask you details about the person in jail like his/her name that is on the legal papers, date of birth, what their charge is, which jail they are being held in and other such information.

Payment

You would need to arrange payment through which bail would be posted. If you have the money, you can pay the whole amount or you can pay 10% of it and the rest will be taken care by collateral and bail bond agent.
