It’s the middle of the night and you’ve just gotten a phone call you didn’t expect. Your best buddy, the guy who does everything for you has been arrested and wonders if you would help post their bail. This puts you in a bind. You’ll probably spend the next several hours lying awake trying to figure out what you should do.
The answer to whether you should post bail for your buddy varies depending on how close you really are, if they have a history of breaking the law, and most importantly your financial situation. Yes, when you post bail for your buddy you’ll get it back, assuming that they don’t skip their court dates. The problem is that it could be a really long time before you see that money again. You have bills to pay, and obligations to meet. Can you really afford to hand that money over to the court which might keep it for several months?
Don’t assume that just because you can’t afford to post your buddy’s bail that there’s nothing you can do. There is. Your best course of action is contacting Barstow Bail Bonds. Not only do we have the money needed to write a bail bond for your buddy, but it’s also likely that we can get your friend released from jail far quicker than you could.
How involved you are in the bail bonds process depends largely on your buddy’s history and financial situation. If they are able to cover the entire 10% fee and if they need collateral to secure the bail bonds. If they don’t need a co-signer or for you to help with the collateral issue, you’re free to walk away from the entire situation, confident in the knowledge that you’ve done a good thing.
