How Does A Bail Bond Work?
This is a free resource provided by the Inland Empire Defense Group.
When an individual is arrested and sent to county jail for booking, you must contact a bail bondsman in order for the inmate to be released. For example, if you are in a city within San Bernardino County, you should contact a San Bernardino Bail Bonds.
Once the booking deputy has completed a background check on the defendant and verified that there are no active arrest warrants, this individual is eligible for release by bond. Many charges such as "driving under the influence" or "drunk in public" are low threat crimes and are usually released on their own recognizance. This means there is no bond needed at the time and the jail will release the arrested on their own word that they will appear in court.
How does a bond work?
Once you have contacted a bail bondsman there are a few things that must be done to make sure that you qualify as a cosigner. Once the underwriting and approval process (financial backing) has been completed, the bonding company will send one of their agents to the jail to turn in a surety bond that matches up or is of higher value then the set bail amount for the inmate.
For example, a $5,000 bond can be posted by handing over the 5,000 surety bond or one of higher value. The Inland Empire Defense Group offers great rebates and payment plans.

Do I qualify as a cosigner?

A great cosigner is one who has held a job for an extended period of time, receives enough income monthly to cover the monthly payments, stayed at the same residence for several years and has no ties to family out of the state or country.

Do I get my money back?
Unfortunately no, you do not get your money back by using our services, BUT you can get your money back if you pay the full bond amount with the jail. You would need the amount in the form of a cashiers check and drop it off at the local jail that is detaining your loved one. If the full bond amount is $50,000 then you must put that amount up yourself to be eligible for a refund. Keep in mind, you are responsible for the appearance of this person in court, if there is a failure to appear in court and a forfeiture is documented then you will lose out on your $50,000.
