Few people expect to be arrested or to have their family charged with a crime, but it can and does happen right here in Connecticut on a regular basis. One problem faced by those charged for the first time is lack of knowledge about how or who to contact for a bail bondsmen in Norwalk, CT. Below are a few tips if something like this happens to you or a loved one.
Use Your Phone Call
Once you’re “checked in” or processed into the facility, use the phone inside the jail to call home, be it a family member or friend who can then search a local bail bondsmen in Norwalk, CT to help you out. While there may be one listed on the wall above the phone or nearby, let a friend or family member do a bit of research to find the right one for your situation. Whether you or a friend calls the bail company, find out what the premium is, as this is important to the person who will be co-signing the bond.
To secure the bond, some form of collateral will be needed. In most cases, a credit card will suffice, however, sometimes, no credit card is available. In cases like that, it may be possible to use a paid off vehicle, real estate or jewelry.
If you’ve put up bail on a person is subsequently re-arrested, it could be possible to reclaim still the premium paid, or, at the very least, give up your position as a co-signer on the bond. However, be aware, if the arrested person is re-arrested, it could be that you have to pay the premium on both bonds. Therefore, be very sure of the person you’re helping out.
There is an application procedure to secure bail on an arrested individual. It could be the bail company will run a credit check on you and the jailed individual, ask a multitude of questions, etc. all in the name of making sure they get their money back. Don’t take it personally, just be patient and answer them as truthfully as possible.
