Posting Phoenix Bail Bonds with a Credit Card

Posting Bail with a Credit Card is Easy

Posting Phoenix Bail Bonds with a credit card is becoming increasingly more popular, particularly with out-of-state clients.  Maricopa County Bail Bonds handles many of these transactions throughout the week.  The appeal of using a credit card on Phoenix bail bonds is many-fold, particularly if the entire bail amount is charged on the card.

  • Transactions can be handled long distance; travel to and from the bail office or jail is unnecessary. The client avoids the traffic and the summer heat of Phoenix.
  • Credit card bonds are fast, as soon as the card is run, the bond can be posted; the client does not need to struggle with documents and recordings required on bonds secured with hard assets like vehicles, real estate, or other collateral
  • Bonds posted with a credit card can save you money. Phoenix Courts are requiring cash only bonds on many of its charges, including child support warrants and drug arrests. Cash-only bonds are charged a higher fee than the usual surety bond if cash is put up by the bail bond company.  Using a credit card for the entire bail amount will save you a bundle on fees and it may be the only option available if you don’t have all the cash.
  • The final advantage of using a credit card on bail bond transactions is the return of funds.  Once the Defendant’s case is completed and the bond exonerated, the bail amount is returned to the card holder (premium fees are retained).  Clients do not have to struggle with getting titles and deeds put back in their names or worry about lien releases.  If the client was making payments on the credit card, the card can now be paid off, or the cash used as they see fit.

What are the advantages of using a Bail Bond Company?

What are the advantages of using a Bail Bond Company?

Advantages of using a Bail Bond Company

A bail bond company takes the bite out of a bond. Let’s say for example that you want to get a friend out of jail on a five thousand dollar ($5,000) Phoenix bail bond.   As an individual you would need to pay the Court or Maricopa County Jail the whole $5,000 dollars in cash to get your friend out of jail.   Unfortunately for you, the jail does not accept cash from the public; the court only accepts cash from registered bail bondsmen.  However, the jail will accept Western Union Money Orders, US Postal Money Orders and Cashiers’ checks.   Assuming you manage to get the bond posted yourself, the Court will hold on to your $5,000 for an undetermined amount of time until the case is adjudicated and the bond exonerated; it could be months and in some cases years.  The Court will not pay you interest on your money and you cannot retract or surrender your bond.  Only a bail bondsman can surrender a bond or re-arrest the Defendant before he skips out on bail.  Your money will in effect,  be tied up until the Defendant is sentenced.

A Phoenix bail bond company, on the other hand, would only charge you a 10 percent fee to post your bond.  On a $5,000 bond that amounts to only $500.  That $500, fee is nonrefundable, but you won’t have to sell the farm in order to get someone out of jail.  You will, however, need to put up some form of collateral worth at least the bond amount that the Phoenix bondsman will hold onto as security pending the Defendant going to all his hearings; but you get that back upon sentencing or exoneration of the bond.

Maricopa County Bail Bonds understands the Arizona Courts and Jails.  We are familiar with the judges, the attorneys and the jail and court clerks.  We are committed to helping you understand the bail bond process and posting your Phoenix Bail Bonds.  We are happy to answer any of your bail bond questions and to discuss any of your concerns.  Please call 602-258-4488 for immediate service.

What is a Bail Bond Company?

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013 in Arizona Bail Bonds, Maricopa County Jail

What is a Bail Bond Company?

A bail bond company acts as Agent for an insurance company, also known as a Surety.  Surety companies are licensed and regulated in each state where they operate.  The bail bonds company is also licensed to operate in the state, but operates as Agent for the Surety.  Both Agent and Surety are bound by strict regulations governed by the Arizona Department of Insurance.  Bail Bond companies must operate under specific guidelines on the rates they must charge and regulations governing contracts.  Arizona bail bonds sell for a minimum 10% premium and are secured by collateral equal to the amount of the bond.

Bail Bond Agents are authorized to use Surety Powers to post bail bonds.  A Surety Power (also known as Power of Attorney, or bail bond) is a financial instrument that promises to pay the Court the full bond amount in cash if the Defendant doesn’t go to his/her hearings.  The Surety company vests the bail bond agent with the power (Power of Attorney) to create a binding obligation between the Court and Surety company.

Phoenix Bail Bonds are posted for inmates incarcerated in the largest jail system in the state, the Maricopa County Jail.  Maricopa County Bail Bonds is a major supplier of bonds to the Maricopa County Jail; they provide superior service and provide free information to the Phoenix Jails.  Call (602) 258-4488 for Phoenix bail bonds.
