Can The Defendant Leave The State Or The Country While On Bond?

You must secure written approval from the bail office before taking any actions. In the event that the court has explicitly told you not to exit the state or country, you are then required to obtain approval from both the bail agent and the court prior to leaving. Failure to do so may lead to your arrest. It’s highly recommended that you discuss your particular circumstances with your Ft Pierce Bail Bondsman.

Not All Bondsman Are Alike!

There are times when Rick’s Bail Bonds Fort Pierce can save you thousands of dollars and other Bail Bonds may not want to. We had a women incarcerated with a $420,000 bound that therefore required $42,000 payment to a bail bond agent. The client came in with $30,000 cash and wanted to use a payment plan for the additional $12,000 due. Under a high stress situation, a family member rushing to release a loved one from jail can be vulnerable. We advised her to contact a lawyer of her choice to have her bail reduced in order to save money, by filing a motion for bond reduction. She did, and we are happy to report the bond was then reduced to $110,000 thus reducing her payment to $11,000 and saving her $31,000.

Do I Get My Money Back After The Case Is Over?

There are a few exceptions to this but you do not get your premium back that you paid to the bail bonds office. This fee is what allowed the defendant to get out of jail and is fully earned once the defendant is out of custody. Without this release from custody, the defendant would stay in custody until his or her court date.

What are Bail Bonds?
