How Bail Bonds Work In Lynwood, CA.
Before any of our agents could post the bail on behalf of the defendant, the jailer must clear the inmate for bail, which means that the defendant will have to complete several steps. These several steps are known as the booking process, which includes the fingerprinting process.
The purpose of the fingerprinting process is to inform the jailer if the defendant has any outstanding warrants or is wanted by any other agency in the area. The jailer cannot legally clear any inmate for bail until he or she has received the results back from the fingerprint scan. Once the agent verifies that the inmate has been cleared for bail, then he or she will contact your with a place and time for you two to meet so that you could fill out the necessary paperwork. When the necessary paperwork is completed, our agent will then turn in the paperwork to the jailer.
The jailer will then verify that all of the necessary information is completed and will then begin the jail release process for the city of Lynwood. The jailer will then release the inmate to your custody and will assign the defendant a much later court date.
It is important to remember that it is your responsibility to make sure that the defendant shows up to his or her court date. If the defendant fails to appear to court, then you will be responsible for the full bail amount. The normal cost of a bail bond is ten percent of the full bail amount, but if the defendant fails to appear in court, then you will be responsible for the full bail amount and not just the ten percent.
