At some point, you may need to hire a bail bondsman. As much as you do not want to admit that you think your loved one is going to get arrested someday, you know it is very likely. So, you want to be as prepared as possible.
A bail bondsman will issue a bail bond for your loved one so that he or she can be released from jail. The bail bondsman will charge a premium, a fee for their services, which is 10% of the full bail amount. You will be allowed to pay off the premium over a set period of weeks or months, whatever you and the bail bondsman agree to. You will then need to make sure your loved one shows up for court.
