Reunite Friends, Families, and Loved Ones Faster
When someone is arrested, he or she is often removed from their daily life suddenly, leaving a marked absence among his or her family, co-workers, and community. When the accused is unable to return to work because they are in jail, this can present a financial hardship for loved ones and employers alike. Many people mistakenly assume that detainees are of a certain demographic or economic status and have little to contribute to society. This misconception couldn’t be farther from the truth.
When you contact a bail bond agent for assistance, you’re taking the first step in reuniting a family and allowing the accused to return to their rightful place in society until his or her day in court. An experienced bondsman can help get your loved one released from jail faster than if you were to attempt to navigate the bonds process on your own. At Future Bail Bonds, we provide a fresh take on bail. Those seeking our assistance are more than just a case number, and more than just a dollar amount contributing to our bottom line. They are fathers, mothers, bosses, and co-workers. We strive to provide innovative and compassionate services, helping families and friends get through their tough time together.

Helpful in Surrendering Oneself
When someone has a warrant out for his or her arrest, they can either turn themselves in or try to evade arrest. Why would someone have a warrant out for them? One may be issued for a variety of reasons, and anything from unpaid parking tickets to failure to appear in court for any reason may cause a warrant to be issued. Many people avoid finding out the details of their warrant for fear of being arrested, causing a lot of anxiety in their daily lives.
However, contacting a bondsman can be beneficial in finding out more information about any warrants that are out there for your arrest. We will be able to track down the details of the warrant including the specific nature of the charges, what jurisdiction the charges are out of, whether or not the bond has been set, and what the amount of the bond is. If you enlist the assistance of a bail bond agent before you turn yourself in, they can go with you when you turn yourself in and begin working on the bail paperwork right away to ensure a speedy release.
Detainee Location Assistance
Have you ever found yourself in a position knowing a friend or loved one was arrested but weren’t sure how to track him or her down quickly without making endless phone calls to the jails, police stations, and other legal departments? The San Bernardino area has several detention centers, jails, and police stations and you could spend hours calling each of them, trying to reach a live person to determine if your friend or family member is booked there.
One of the lesser-known advantages of a bail bond agent is that he or she can assist you in trying to track down a loved one you fear has been arrested. As part of their daily duties, they frequently contact the jails and detention centers. They are also very familiar with the various jurisdictions in our area and the corresponding police stations. Just as they can assist those choosing to surrender themselves, bail bond agents can save you the time and energy of determining if your loved one has been arrested, where they are detained, and how much the bond is.
When people are contacting a bondsman, they usually have a lot of questions. How does the process work? How fast can you help me? Do I need any type of collateral? During the course of speaking with a bond agent, many people are surprised at how easily and quickly the arrested party can be released from jail. Even more so, our customers are often pleased to learn that they can save money by requesting the assistance of a bail bond company.
After someone is arrested and the bond amount has been determined, bail can be posted a few different ways. The two most common methods are through cash bonds and surety bonds. When someone chooses to post a cash bond without the assistance of a bond agent, he or she must come up with the full amount of the bail. In cases where the bail is thousands of dollars, this can prove to be challenging and people often find themselves borrowing money or selling property to come up with the funds. However, with the assistance of a bondsman, you only pay a certain percentage (usually 10 percent) of the bail amount, resulting in cash savings when you need it most.
As your can see, aside from getting you or your loved one released from jail as soon as possible, contacting a bondsman can be advantageous for a number of reasons. We hope that when you find yourself in need of professional and compassionate help, you’ll trust the friendly team at Future Bail Bonds. Whether you’re hoping to get assistance in the process of surrendering yourself or locating a loved one who’s possibly been detained, our team is here for you and here for your family, and we’ll help you get through this together.
