You’ll need your bail bond fee, the requirements of which may vary based on the specific charges your loved one is facing.
Red Eye Bail Bonds writes bonds at Fulton County Jail, Alpharetta, Roswell, East Point, and the City of Atlanta and surrounding counties. We can also write bail bonds nationwide, if needed.
No. Once a bail bond has been posted for the accused, this money is the fee earned by the bail bondsman for the initial posting of the bond.
The co-signer is the person taking responsibility for the bail bond if the accused fails to appear in court.
Collateral is money, property, or anything of value held by the bail bondsman while the accused is out on bail. This collateral is returned when the defendant has completely settled the case.
It is your responsibility to know when the defendant has to appear in court. Typically, the courts will notify us when the accused is scheduled to appear. You may call our offices between 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday, to check on the status of court dates and appearances.
You are liable for the full amount of the bail bond, plus expenses, if your friend or relative does not go to court. A failure to appear in court does not necessarily mean you’ll have to pay the full amount of the bond. While there is no excuse for missing court, Red Eye Bail Bonds encourages our clients to notify us of any unusual circumstances so that we can offer advice on your best course of action regarding your particular situation.
The time varies, as jails are busy places. There’s a process to follow before release, even if the bail bond is paid. Booking, the taking of a mug shot, and fingerprinting may take hours. The sooner you contact us to make arrangements, the more quickly you or your loved one will be released when processing is finished.
If you miss a court date, a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest. You’ll be rearrested and taken to jail on a charge of failure to appear, and you will have to bond out again. You also may have to post bond again on your original charges.
Yes. Bond conditions set forth by the court must be followed. Conditions may include no drinking alcohol or drug use, not moving without notifying the courts, and not breaking any state or federal laws. Violation of bond conditions may mean a return to jail and revocation of bail – meaning you’ll be incarcerated until your court date.
You can release your property and / or your money to anybody of your choosing if you are arrested. You can release your money to a friend, relative, or even an employee of Red Eye Bail Bonds. The person picking up your money or property may sign for it at the jail.
If you’re aware of a warrant for your arrest, you can turn yourself in, instead of waiting for the police to show up at your house or place of employment. You can then call and find out the amount of the bail bond. For expediency, we highly recommend that you make your bond arrangements first.
