The first step
Find out the city or county the defendant was arrested or detained in. If you do not know contact us and we will help you research. Also, you can click on the "Locate Inmates" tab at the top of the page and search the databases. After you have found the defendant, call us at (954) 463-4333, and we will assist you from there.

How it works
In most states, a "bail bond agent" writes something like a "check" to the court, to the sheriff's office, or to the jail's "release window" for the entire amount of the bail amount so the defendant can get out of jail. The cost of this process is only a small part of the bond (usually about 10% of each bond, or 15% of a federal bond). However, if the defendant does not show up for court, the "bail bond agency" is then responsible for paying the entire amount of the defendant's bond to the court. That is why we often request collateral to assure that the defendant will show up for court.

How Long Will it Take?
Our agents are quick and efficient, we utilize 'state-of-art' computer equipment and services to process all applications, credit cards, and deliver the necessary documents to get your friends and family released as quickly as possible. Then, it is up to the jail, or release center to take these documents (Power of Attorney) and release the defendant. How long it takes to release a defendant is often determined by how efficient the corrections officers are, and how many other people have been arrested before your friend or family member. Friday, Saturday, Sunday nights and holidays are usually very busy. Being realistic, in some counties it can be from four to 10 hours after the "bail bond agent" has delivered the documents to the release center. Therefore, calling us as soon as possible with the information will help the defendant get out of jail quicker.

Following Up
After the defendants are released from jail they are required to come in to our office within 24 to 48 hours to sign documentation and provide current contact information. This will help ensure court dates and changes will be mailed and received in a timely manner. Defendants are also required to contact our office within 24 hours if they have new contact information or address changes. Likewise, if the defendant plans on traveling out of town while out on bond they must notify us ahead of time.
