Does Credit Matter When Applying for a Bail Bond in California

There are many bail bond agencies in California, so you can’t help but wonder why you should choose Apple Valley Bail Bond. However, there are several reasons you’ll be happier when you choose whenever you or a loved one needs a bail bond.

Payment Options

The main reason people turn to a bail bond agency rather than posting bail themselves is that they simply can’t afford to post the entire amount themselves. In comparison, only having to pay a fee that adds up to 10-15% of the total amount is both more attractive and more feasible.

The problem is that even 10% puts a financial strain on some people. We understand that and want to help.

Our solution was the creation of a flexible payment plan that works with your budget and income limitations. We work closely with you to keep the payments as low as possible and that the schedule meshes with the days that your paycheck arrives. Even more importantly, we don’t charge any interest or added fees when you choose to take advantage of the payment program.

We Are Experienced

Have you noticed that some bail bond agencies are around for a few months and then are never heard of again? Or they’re so new that no one can really provide any information about them. That isn’t the case with Apple Valley Bail Bonds. We have several decades’ worth of experienced and use it to serve all of California. We use our experience to write bonds quickly and to make sure that the jail processes them as quickly as possible.

Outstanding Customer Service

We understand that this is an extremely trying time. We also know that getting terse won’t help the situation and that we can’t get upset when you have lots of questions. We created a consultation program that is always handled by a live bail bond expert. During this consultation, you’re invited to ask anything that crosses your mind. We promise the entire consultation will be treated with patience and be extremely informative.

Both phone and online consultations are always free and available 24/7.

We Don’t Pressure You to Make a Decision

Unlike other bail bond agencies that try to force you into making an on-the-spot decision, we want you to take your time and really decide if we’re the right agency for you.

Is There Anything I Can Do to Make the Bail Bond Post Faster?

If you’re anything like most people, now that you’ve been arrested and spent a little time in a cell, you’re ready to go home. The sooner you get out of jail, the better. The idea of waiting for a bail bond to post seems like it’s just too much to bear.

While there is little you can do to speed up the amount of time it takes the jail to process the bail bond, there are some things you can do to help speed up the overall process.

Contact the Bail Bonds Agency Right Away

Even if you’re still waiting to be arraigned and learn how large a bail you require, it’s a good idea to start communicating with the bail bonds agency. We can look at similar cases to get a ballpark idea of how high the judge will set bail and can use that to discuss things like collateral, co-signers, and zero-interest payment options. Going over this before your arraignment means we’ll have the bail bond ready to go almost as soon as your arraignment ends.

Line up a Co-Signer

While we don’t require a co-signer all the time, the reality is that they are fairly common requirements. Start talking to your friends and family and find out who is both willing and in a financial situation to co-sign the bail bond agreement. Make sure that they know that they’re able to consult with the bail bonds agency. Before any paperwork is signed, you and your co-signer will want to discuss the terms of the bail bond and make sure you’re both very aware of and comfortable with each other’s expectations.

Decide What you Can Use as Collateral

The issue of collateral is something that slows the bail bond process for many people. The problem is that you can’t use just anything for collateral. We’ll discuss the types of items we’re willing to accept as collateral. In addition to something we’ll accept, such as a piece of property or a car, the collateral must be owned free and clear; a bank can’t have an interest in it.
