What if I Can't Pay my Bail at the Orange Jail?
It is common for police and district attorneys to file the most serious charges that could possibly apply to any given situation, even if the charges might be reduced or dismissed at a later date. This can make the bail much higher, making it even more difficult to come up with the cash to pay your bail. That's where a bail bond company, like Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds, can help. Mr. Nice Guy will pay your bail for you, in return for a small fee, generally 10% of the total cost of your bail. Call (844) 400-2245 to start the bail bond process, immediately.
How To Post a Bail Bond at the Theo Lacey Jail in Orange, CA?
For many people, it can be difficult to come up with the entire amount of money that is due for bail. Not only is a great deal of money involved, but that money will be tied up with the court system for a long time. Some cases can take over a year to come to an end. After the case has ended, it can sometimes take some time to get the money back from the court system.
Most people, facing a substantial amount of bail, just don't have the cash to pay the bail outright. A person can post property as a form of bail, but the amount of value in the property has to be double the value of the bail being sought. Often, it's easier to get help from a bail bondsman like Mr. Nice Guy (844)400-2245.
A bail bondsman is a person who is licensed by the state, working with an agency, who can post a “bond” for you, instead of the full amount of your bail. The bail bondsman works with a Surety Company, who is a little like an insurance company. They have certain rules for issuing bonds to help people get out of jail. The person who is in jail pays a fee and the bail bondsman pays the bail.
Then, the person who has been charged with a crime can get back to their job and family, while they wait for trial. The person who had the bond posted for them is promising the bail bondsman that they will continue to show up for all of the hearings and proceedings required by their charges so that the bondsman can get the bail money back from the court.
Where Can I Find Orange, CA Bail Bond Service?
