When you’re in need of a bail bond, you want to know that you’re bondsman cares about your situation and that the services he or she provides are efficient and affordable.

If you or a loved one is arrested, it’s unlikely that you’re looking at the clock trying to make sure the process of being detained and booked is wrapped up by 5:00pm. Arrests can happen anytime, day or night, weekday or weekend. Because of this, you should expect your bondsman to be available by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week for questions and to get the ball rolling on your quick release. Likewise, once you are released, you may have questions about the conditions of your bail that require immediate answers. At Future Bail Bonds, you can always rely on our bond agents being available for you, no matter the time of day.
Depending on the nature of your charges and the situation, a lot of work can go into getting you released from jail. Along with this effort comes a lot of documentation so you and your bond company can make sure everyone is on the same page with the terms of the bond services.
- Bond contract. When you enter into a bond agreement, knowing the specific terms of the agreement are vital to ensuring an amicable relationship with your bondsman. The bond agent should clearly explain and thoroughly review the contract terms with you upon beginning bond services for you.
- Reporting conditions. Once you have been bailed out of jail, you’ll be expected to report to court for certain hearings and appointments. Your bond company will likely also require that you report to them for various reasons. All of this should be documented and reviewed by your bond agent.
- Collateral. If you’ve put up some sort of collateral in order to secure the bail bond from your bondsman, make sure that you understand the conditions pertinent to the conditions of the collateral item. These details should also be reviewed with your bondsman and clearly spelled out in the documentation from your agent.
If you feel like you’re being left in the dark or the bail bond company isn’t thoroughly explaining things to you, beware. This could be a recipe for disaster and result in the unintentional violation of your bail conditions. The reliable team at Future Bail Bonds appreciates how important it is for you to be fully aware of all terms related to your bond, and you can always rely on us to keep you informed and in the loop.
Having a bondsman who is well-versed in the intricacies of your jurisdiction’s legal system is essential to efficient bail bonds. This will ensure that you are released as quickly as possible from jail and that your bond agent understands the importance of court reporting conditions. Additionally, confirming that your bail bond company and agent is licensed by the state they perform services in is equally as important to ensure compliance with state agencies and national associations, such as the Professional Bail Agents of the United States. The entire team at Future Bail Bonds is licensed and bonded to provide bail bond services in the state of California, so you can count on 100 percent legal and ethical bail bonds from our company.
