If you receive a call from someone you know, trust, and care about informing you they have been arrested, then yes, you should absolutely assist them with Alameda bail bonds. No one wants to see a loved one stay in jail any longer than they have to. It is also much easier for someone who is not in custody to arrange bail.
When you bail a friend out of jail you are doing more than helping them be released from custody. You are allowing them the ability to return to their home, their family, to return to work and to consult with an attorney in order to prepare their case.
Signing Alameda bail bonds paperwork does mean you’ll be taking on a certain amount of responsibility. Namely, you are taking responsibility the defendant will return to court in order to handle their case. When a defendant willfully skips bail the bondsman will have six months to get this person back into the system. If they are unsuccessful, whoever co-signed the bail bonds contract could be on the hook for the entire bail amount. If you have concerns this person may decide to flee from the legal system, you may want to think twice before signing that document.
