If you have a loved one who has been arrested and is currently in jail, you may be understandably eager to help them secure a release while you await a trial or any necessary court appearances. Courts often set bail amounts much higher than many people can afford to meet the requirements, and that’s when you may wonder who should apply for a bond.
At Alpha Bonding, we want to do everything we can to help you during this difficult and challenging time. There is not one right answer to the question of who should apply for a bond. Often times, it is the accused themselves, but it is also frequently a family member or other loved one who takes on this responsibility. It is not a task to be taken lightly because if the accused does not show up at the required court appearances, the bail money or the collateral used to apply for a bond may be forfeited.
The good news is that you can continue to live in your home or drive your car if you choose to use these as collateral. The application process is also fairly quick and easy. You can apply for a bond any time of the day or night– simply download the application, fill it out in its entirety, and return it to us via fax or email. If you decide to apply for a bond, you’ll be glad to know that we have been helping people like you since 1992, and our services are both efficient and compassionate.
