13 Apr Can You Bail Someone Out of Jail When You’re Broke
One of your favorite loved ones has been arrested. You desperately want to help by posting bail. The only problem is that while your intentions are good and your heart is in the right place, you don’t have any money.
The good news is that just because you don’t have any extra money on hand, it doesn’t mean you can’t help your loved one. First, knowing that you’re in their corner will do wonders for their mental health.
Second, having no money doesn’t actually prevent you from helping out with bail.
The lack of finances will prevent you from posting the entire bail, but that doesn’t mean you can’t contact Riverside Bail Bonds.
The first advantage connected to turning to Riverside Bail Bonds when your finances don’t allow you to post the entire bail is that we only require 10% of the bail amount. That’s it, just ten percent. So if the court says your loved one needs $5,000 in bail, all you have to do is pay us $500 and we’ll post a bail bond. It is important to understand that the 10% is a fee, you won’t get it back.
If you don’t have the 10% we have flexible payment plans. We will work closely with you to create a payment program that works with your financial situation. These payments are zero-interest so when all is said and done, you’ll still have only paid the 10%.
In some situations, we will ask for some sort of collateral. This usually only happens when the requested bail bond is high or when we think your loved one is a flight risk. We’ll explain what we accept as collateral during the free consultation and make sure you understand how we use the collateral before you sign the bail bonds contract. We’ll also make sure you’re loved one understands just how much you’re willing to do for them.
