How to Secure
a Bail Bond?

The question is,

"How do I obtain
a bail bond?"

Answer: It's simple and quick
– it could take only 30 minutes

When getting a bail bond for a crime committed by someone you care about, it's natural to wonder how to go about it. Despite the whole bail bondsman and bail bond agents' process seeming complex, contacting the various bail bond agencies or agents and the bail bond process can be very simple. It can be done quickly, usually posting money for the bail amount yourself in less than half an hour.

When you reach out to Cowboy Bail Bonds, a top ten bail bondsman, agent, and bond service, we'll start by gathering some basic information about you and your relationship to the person involved in the crime.

We'll start by getting to know you better—asking about your relationship with the arrested individual, how long you've been living at your current address and the duration of your employment at your job. This helps us understand your position, whether you're a bail bond agent seeking a bail bond for yourself, acting as a bail bond agent or cosigner, or potentially working with us more closely. Our goal is to simplify the process for you, ensuring obtaining a bail bond feels straightforward and stress-free. After all, our role as bail bond agents and bail bondsmen is to facilitate a quick and smooth release from jail for those in need.

Breaking down a Bail Bond

A cash bail or bond includes the fee (premium) and the security (collateral). The premium is a percentage of the bail set by the court's bail bond agent and is charged by the agency agent or a licensed commercial bail bond company. You can pay this fee using various methods, such as credit cards, checks, or cash.

We also offer our services and "signature bonds" for defendants who don't need collateral to pay up. We evaluate the merits of each bond by law, the defendant's bail bond, and the defendant or cosigner's financial status before issuing a bond. The bonding process usually takes 30 minutes, ensuring quick release for the defendant or your loved one.

What Occurs After an Arrest?

If you're new to the bail system, you may wonder what happens after an arrest. The person arrested is typically taken to a first bail bond agency, company, agent, front department, police department, station, or jail for processing and release. This involves fingerprinting, taking their photo, and checking for any outstanding warrants. Once the criminal charges are confirmed, the same bail bond agency, company, agent, and/or the court will determine the bail amount unless there are exceptional warrants or the offense is a serious crime punishable by death.

Understanding Exoneration and Release from Financial Obligations with a Bail Bond Agent

When criminal charges are dropped, the court case has ended, and the defendant is found not guilty. The released defendant typically has attended all the trial court appearances and scheduled further court appearances and hearings until the trial court appearance's final decision or sentencing.

After the criminal case is dismissed, the defendant, any bail bonds agents, bond or insurance company, and the person who signed for the bail (the cosigner) are no longer required to pay any fees related to the bond. Any money or property the defendant put up as collateral for the bond is returned. Still, depending on the specific rules of the bail bond, bail agent, insurance company, or agreement, there may be some fees to recover the collateral.
