Many people think that in order to help get a friend or loved one out of the Santa Rita Jail they will need to meet with a bondsman in person. There are a number of agents who still prefer to transact in person. You may be surprised to learn that there are others who have streamlined the process and have begun offering online bail bonds by fax and email. This can be especially convenient if you are at work, traveling out of town or late in the night. It also saves time. Most people find that online bail bonds are the fastest and easiest way to get someone out of jail.
If the agent you’re speaking with does offer this service they will begin by asking you several basic questions about the defendant. They will want to know their full name, approximate age, bail amount if you know it and the general nature of the crime they are being charged with. They will then prepare a customized bail contract that will be faxed or emailed to your location. This document will take about 10 minutes to fill out. Once the paperwork is complete and payment has been arranged an agent will be dispatched to the jail to post the bond. It really is that easy.
