“Why should you use bail bonds?”
Believe it or not this is a common question we see. Especially when someone is dealing with posting bail for the first time. So, in today’s blog we’re going to take a closer look and explore just why you should use bail bonds. By the end you’ll see why bail bonds are for everyone and they help people no matter what their walk of life might be.
Because an arrest can happen at any moment and for any reason. There’s not telling when you might have to post bail for yourself or a loved one. Anyone who has dealt with an arrest and posting bail will tell you that there is a lot of money involved. While some people may have a significant savings account not all of us have thousands of dollars sitting around. That’s why bail bonds come in handy, whether you have a considerable savings account or not. When you decide to work with a local bail bond agency you only have to pay 10% of the total cost of bail. Even with fees or premiums 10% is significantly less than the full bail amount.
Even if you have enough money saved away to pay for bail using a bail bond is a good idea. That’s because it helps keep more money in your pocket for unforeseen expenses. Expenses such as:
- Additional Legal Fees
- Bill Payments (rent/mortgage/insurance/etc)
- Childcare/Pet care
- Day to Day Expenses
After an arrest you never know if you need to hire an attorney. If you will have to miss work to make it to your court ordered hearings. If you have children or pets and you need to spend several long days at court you may need to hire or pay for childcare or pet care. And if you have to miss work this can put strain on you financially when it comes time to pay for bills and your day to day expenses.
All in all, why should you use bail bonds? Because it gives you a financial advantage in the long run.
