Committing a crime can be very expensive on the wallet. In addition to any court-related fees or penalties that a defendant is obligated to pay, there’s also the matter of bail. Chances are you received a bail amount after being arrested. But let’s say you have the money for bail. Why would you need a bail bond?
First, understand that bail can be pretty expensive, especially if you are accused of committing a serious offense. Unless you’re wealthy, chances are the bail is going to be much more than you can afford. But if you’re bail isn’t high and it’s a price that you can afford, it’s still makes more sense to take out a bail bond than use your own money. Here’s why.
Reasons for Posting Bail
First, that money can be used for other purposes, such as hiring a good attorney or putting some money away in case you have to pay a penalty later on. You never know when an emergency may arise that extra cash will help you in the long run.
Second, the fees for our bail bonds are pretty reasonable. You would only owe a percentage of how much the bail is, usually at 10%. So instead of paying the full amount, you’ll only pay a small percentage. For example, let’s say bail is set for your loved one at $25,000. You can empty your savings account to pay that amount, or you can got to us and pay only $2,500.
And don’t worry about your credit. Bail bonds don’t show up on your credit report.
