What is the work of a Costa Mesa Bail Bonds agent?

The bail agent refers to the person tasked with posting the agreed bond with the Costa Mesa jail and then obtaining the defendant’s release.

Unless the bail amount is set, court date set as well as confirmation that no pending warrants exists, nobody can be released from the jail. There are many ways to get funds to bail a relative out. Aztec Title of Ventura County does car title loans, which is a lien against your vehicle.

After posting the bail bond, how long will it take before the defendant is released?

If someone gets the bond posted while your loved one is still at the Costa Mesa Police Department, the time can be as little as 1 hour.  Once someone gets transferred to the main county jail in Santa Ana, it depends on how many detainees whose release is being processed. In short, it depends on the length of queue. It is not upon the bail agent to expedite the release of a detainee. If you contact us as soon as possible, we can get the process started before your loved one gets transferred.

How many calls is a defendant entitled to?

As the process of booking goes on, the detainee is permitted to make many calls. He or she can call the Bail Bonds Costa Mesa company, he/she can also call you through collect call, and, subject to the restrictions imposed by the jail, the detainee can set up a 3-way telephone call between him/her and a bail office. Although the calls might be short, they allow you to pass important information.

Is the Costa Mesa Bail Bonds company your only option of securing freedom? Are there other options?

In order to be released fast, the jail takes cognizance of two sources: the first one is the agent that posts bail bonds in Costa Mesa that is licensed, and he must be registered by the California Department Of Insurance. (At all times, you should insist on seeing the identification of a bail agent). The second option is cash in full deposited at the court. If this is the case, the detainee will be refunded the full cash bail unless there are outstanding fines and other court fees. However, these deductions cannot be made without your permission. Some courts also recognize US Treasury bonds. There are even cases where a court may allow the use of property bond to secure the release of a detainee.

will the bond be forfeited in the event that the person bailed out fails to appear in court?

Technically, the answer of the above question is yes. It is true that the bond will be fortified. It is possible for the court to view the defendant’s refusal to honor court appearance as an intractable act. To this end, the court may issue bench warrant. This then makes the defendant to be subject to arrest. Therefore, if you are aware that you may not get courtroom, or you know that you will be late, you need to inform us to remedy the situation through re-assuming the bond. Alternatively, you can get in touch with a court clerk in whichever courtroom. These will then lead you to the right court where you are required.
