EZ Bail Bonds addresses five of the most common myths to better inform the public about bail bonds.
Pearland, TX (PRWEB) August 17, 2015
EZ Bail Bonds—a bail bonds service headquartered in Pearland, TX, with three additional locations—understands the fear and emotional trauma that accompanies getting a bench warrant or being thrown in jail. However, the company also recognizes that there are several misperceptions about the bonding process. Thus EZ Bail Bonds addresses five of the most common myths to better inform the public about bail bonds.
Myth #1: You have to post bail with cash. While legal tender is the most common way of paying bondsmen, it is not the only one. Clients can also rely on debit or credit cards, and even wire transfers or bank deposits. People can also offer to put up collateral with owned property, such as vehicles, jewelry, and consumer electronics.
Myth #2: Bondsmen can negotiate with the courts. When the court grants a defendant bail, it is never negotiable. The defendant would have to pay 10 to 20 percent of the bail amount to be set free—no exceptions.
Myth #3: Defendants must come up with all the bail money demanded by the court. In addition to the reasonable requirement of paying 10 to 20 percent of the bail, defendants can negotiate with their bail bonds service on the terms of payment. For example, EZ Bail Bonds offers affordable payment plans for people who cannot financially meet the minimum requirements for their bail.
Myth #4: Fees paid to bondsmen will be refunded in court. The 10 to 20 percent that is paid to the bail bond agent is non-refundable. However, if a defendant paid the court a partial or full amount, that balance would be refunded to the defendant after he or she shows up for the date that the court set for the case trial.
Myth #5: The non-refundable fee is the only money that goes to the bondsman. This condition, however, is contingent on the defendant showing up for his or her case trial as determined by the court. Otherwise the defendant would need to pay the bail bondsman a bail default, in addition to the same balance paid to the court.
