STEP TWO – Complete Our Paperwork
In either case, the first step in the bail bond process is for the potential co-signers to come into one of our offices to fill out paperwork. We have many convenient locations. Call us to find one near you. Feel free to check our Locations page on this website for directions.
STEP THREE – Bring Co Signers with Proper Identification
In addition to completing our paperwork, all co-signers require official photo identification (such as a driver’s license or a passport) and a copy of their most recent pay stub or bank statement. All co-signers must be 18 years or older. There is no set number of co-signers that may be required to post bail, however the more co-signers that sign the better the chances the bail will be approved: so bring as many as you can!
STEP FOUR- Make a Down-Payment
A down-payment towards the premium is paid by the co-signer(s) at the time the paperwork is submitted. In many cases the down-payment is as low as one percent of the bail amount! Therefore, if the Defendant’s bail is $50,000.00, Aaron Bail Bonds may be able to post the bail for as little as $500.00 plus a $50.00 jail fee. The Defendant and the co-signers can then pay the remaining amount due in easy installments. Payments can be made in cash, credit card, check or money order.
STEP FIVE – Bail Approval
Once the down-payment on the premium is received, and the bail is approved, Aaron Bail Bonds will send one of its bail agents to the jail where the Defendant is in custody. The bail agent will post the bail bond and the Defendant is then released, provided that he has no detainers (warrants or fines in other towns or counties). Aaron Bail Bonds will do its best to check for any detainers, however it is ultimately the responsibility of the Defendant and the co-signers to ensure that no detainers exist on the Defendant’s record.
STEP SIX – After the Defendant is Released…
Once the Defendant is out he or she must make all required court appearances. Within 48 hours of his or her release, the Defendant must check into our office to sign some documents and have his picture taken. The Defendant must check in with Aaron Bail Bonds periodically during the duration of his trial.
If Aaron Bail Bonds receives notice of an upcoming court date, we will notify the Defendant and the co-signers of that court date. However, sometimes we are not notified of every court date. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the Defendant and the co-signers to stay on top of the Defendant’s case until the conclusion of the trial to make sure no court dates are missed. The best way to do this is to check in with the courthouse from time to time. If a court date is missed it could result in the forfeiture of the bail and the issuance of an arrest warrant for the Defendant.
In the meantime, payments towards the premium can be made at any one of our offices, or mailed directly to our main headquarters in Paterson, New Jersey. Aaron Bail Bonds has a Payment Department that will work with Defendants on payment arrangements. Aaron Bail Bonds accepts payments by cash, check, money order or credit card.
