Altamount Bail Bonds, Grundy County, Tennessee

If you Bail Someone Out of Jail, do You Get the Money Back in Altamount, Tennessee?

Your best friend just called and told you they are in jail. They also begged you to post their bail for them. While you want to be a good friend and do everything you can to help them, you also have to consider your personal finances. It’s perfectly natural to wonder if you post your best friend’s bail, will you get the money back, and how long will it take?

The answer depends on how you decide to handle the bail.

If you decide to post the entire amount of the bail, you’ll be happy to know that, yes, you will get the money back. The bad news is that how long it takes before you see that money again will depend on your friend. If they plan to plead guilty or the charges are dropped, it will take a little while before the money is back in your account.

On the other hand, if they decide to fight the charges and your best friend’s case goes to trial, it could be months before you see the money again.

If you decide you can’t come up with the entire sum your buddy needs for bail, you could offer to help them get a bail bond. The good news is that this is far easier on your budget. When you go the route of the bail bond, you will only have to pay 10% of the required bail. So, if you’re friend’s bail is set at $5,000, you’ll only have to provide the bail bond agency with $500.

Don’t wait any longer – just give us a call at 931-266-4990, unload any and all questions (we’ll be more than happy to answer them!), and let’s get your loved one home now!
