How to Post Bail When You Don’t Have Any Money

So you got locked up and have no money to bail yourself out? Don’t worry—you do have options! If you were arrested but need to get out so you can take care of your family, go to work and get back to your other daily responsibilities, the bondsmen at Afford-A-Bail in New London CT or anywhere else in Connecticut can help! Our main goal is to help people like you who do not have the funds to make bail in one large payment. When you need an emergency bail bond loan, there is always a way to get one—ALWAYS!

 

Unfortunately, most of the nation does not have enough money saved for most emergencies, especially emergencies involving the law. Times are tough, making it difficult for citizens to get by, much less place a huge amount down to set themselves free until their court date. However, nobody can afford to miss a bunch of work either. So what are their options? There are a few, actually.

 

First, You Need to Understand Bail Basics.

Because most people have never been arrested, most people do not understand how bail works. The U.S. legal system is based on the presumption that the accused are considered innocent until proven guilty. With that presumption in mind, the government wants to ensure that all those charged with crime are able to go about their daily normal lives while their case is pending—otherwise, they could sit in jail for months or even years until proven innocent! On the other hand, the government doesn’t want criminals to get away either, so they ensure defendants don’t skip town by collecting money or interest in real property as collateral—otherwise known as “bail.” If the accused shows up to their court hearing and abide by the conditions of bail, they get their bail amount back. If they don’t, bail can be revoked and forfeited, and the defendant put in jail for the remainder of their case.

 

How is the Bail Amount Set?

A judge will consider the following factors prior to setting a bail amount:

  • The defendant’s criminal record
  • The serious of the crime
  • The likelihood that the defendant will flee
  • How much of a threat the defendant poses to the community
  • The defendant’s financial resources

 

Once bail is set, you have the option for paying the entire amount, giving the court interest in your real property or working with a bail bondsman.

 

But What if You Can’t Afford the Bail Amount?

If the court asks you to pay an amount you cannot afford, and if you do not have any real property to put down as collateral, the judge may release you on an Own Recognizance (OR) Bond, Signature Bond or PR Bond.

 

Own Recognizance

A judge will only grant an OR bond if he or she determines that you are not a flight risk and nor are you a threat to the community. The judge has reviewed your case and determined the crime not serious enough to warrant jail time pending trial. Additionally, they trust that you will show up for trial and follow the rules of your bail release.

 

Signature Bond

If you are not seen as a threat to the community, and if the judge does not perceive you as a flight risk, your attorney may be able to negotiate a signature bond, which is very similar to an OR bond in that it does not require any payment or co-signer.

 

PR Bond

Finally, if you have a criminal history but it is not a violent one, the court judge may decide to release you on a PR bond, which come with stipulations such as requiring you to take classes and even going through therapy. So long as you follow the stipulations of your bond and are present for all court appearances, you will remain out of jail.

 

But what if the judge does not trust you and will not release you on any of the above type of bonds? You can still work with a jail bond agency like Afford-A-Bail.

 

Afford-A-Bail Offers Affordable Bail Bonds

At Afford-A-Bail, we can ensure that you are bonded and safe from jail until your court date with the following options:

 

Bail Bond With a Co-Signer

If you cannot make bail yourself and do not have a good credit and job history, we can co-sign your bond and arrange a payment plan. Typically, bond payments are 10% to 15% of the set bail amount.

 

Payment Plans

We understand that it’s almost impossible to anticipate an arrest, and therefore, almost impossible to have the money upfront to pay for pail. At Afford-A-Bail, we simply ask for 35% of our fees down, and we will put you on a payment plan so that you can pay off your fees in a realistic timeframe.

 

If you have been arrested and don’t have the money for bail upfront, do not panic, and call the bondsmen at Afford-A-Bail now! Fast, affordable and easy, we make it easy to use Bail to Avoid Jail!
