Phoenix Arizona Bail Bonds

     Arizona bail bond companies generally offer free jail information on defendants incarcerated in the county jails throughout Arizona.  As a general rule, most Arizona bail bond companies do a pretty good job of getting their clients accurate information.  When your friend or family member gets incarcerated, it is advisable that you deal with a bondsman in obtaining information.  Jail staff are overloaded by phone calls everyday, often giving the same information to several family members throughout the day. 

     Maricopa County is broken down into two jail systems, municipal jails (police departments) and county jails.  The municipal jails temporarily house inmates before moving them to the Maricopa County Jail.  Municipal jails would prefer providing inmate information once to a qualified bail bond agent who in turn can explain the process and charges to family members.  The bondsman knows what questions to ask and how to properly explain the charges and bail procedures.  The Maricopa County Jail currently uses an automated hotline forproviding routine bail bond information.  If your question is not answered through the automated hotline, you can hold for an operator.  Hold times can be an hour or longer as calls are answered in order of calls received.  Bail bondsman can submit an inmate inquiry to jail staff via email, which when returned, provides the same basic information that the Hotline provides.  The Maricopa County Jail is just too large of a system to provide spot on operator assistance.  Maricopa County Bail Bonds provides free jail information to prospective clients earnestly looking for a Phoenix bail bond.  Call (602) 258-4488 to obtain immediate help.

 Phoenix Bail Bond Companies

     Phoenix bail bond companies are a dime a dozen; some are reputable, some are not. The interesting thing about obtaining bail bonds in Phoenix is the intense competition amongst bondsmen vying for your business. As competition increases in a business sector, so will illegal activity.   Be aware that there are minimum requirements set by law for Arizona Bail Bonds.   A bail bond is composed of two parts; the premium (fee) and the collateral needed to secure the bond.  The minimum premium cost of a bail bond in Phoenix is 10% of the bond, in other words, if the bond amount is $2,000 you will need to pay a $200 non-refundable fee.  In addition, bail bonds need to be secured with collateral.  Collateral is something of value that you put up as security that is worth the amount of the bond.

     Sounds simple and straight forward, right?  

     Not exactly, Phoenix bail bond agents will sometimes wave their collateral requirements, or take payments on the premium to “help” you get the bond.  Agents advertising 5% down are prime examples of this.  Bondmen that compromise their security are generally nervous about the Defendant they bailed out of jail; they are more apt to re-arrest the defendant and revoke their bond then a bondsman that gets the premium fee and collateral up front.  Once your bond is revoked, you lose whatever premium you paid and your back in jail.  If you deposited collateral with the agent, he will hold on to it until you pay the whole thing off.  If the bondsman rearrested the Defendant  he will probably tack on his bounty hunting fees.  Be wary of short cuts and bondsmen wanting to give you something for next to nothing.  Call Maricopa County Bail Bonds for the straight facts on Phoenix bail bonds – (602) 258-4488.
