We will work with you and the Defendant to get them bonded out as quickly as possible, however, you should be aware of possible delays that may result while processing a bond. The jail in Williston has set times where it is very difficult to post a bond. Usually during meals, their 24/7 sobriety program testing, medicine and commissary handout, and lockdown are the most difficult times to post bonds.
There are 3 classifications of Surety Bonds that you should be aware of. If a Defendant calls us from the jail, we let them know of the 3 options they have regarding using us for their bond. The first is a "FULL COLLATERAL BOND", the second is a "CO-SIGNER BOND" and the third is a "CO-SIGNER PARTIALLY SECURED BOND". Details of these bond classifications are below:
FULL COLLATERAL BONDS: If an agent advises you that a bond is "full collateral" that means that either the Defendant doesn't have a qualified co-signer, has limited address/employment in the Williston area, or has a previous record of failing to appear for court. In this situation, we would be required to take the full amount of the bond, plus the bail bond "premium" either by cash, money order, certified bank draft, wire, credit or debit card. No checks are allowed. When the case is closed, providing the Defendant has made all required court appearances, the bond amount (collateral) is refunded back, leaving only the "premium" charge.
EXAMPLE: A bond is set at $5,000.00. We would collect the full amount of the bond, plus the premium, in this instance, let's say 20%, or $1,000.00, for a total of $6,000.00. After the case is closed as described above, the $5,000.00 would be refunded, leaving only the premium charged.
CO-SIGNER BONDS: If an agent advises you that a bond requires only a co-signer (or co-signers) that means that we will post the bond for only the premium and obtain a signature (or signatures) from one or more qualified co-signer(s) that have proven income, and employment/residence history.
EXAMPLE: A bond is set at $5,000.00. We would collect the premium, in this instance let's say 20%, or $1,000.00, as well as an application from both the Defendant and any co-signer(s). After the case is closed as described above, no further payments would be owed by the Defendant or the co-signer(s).
CO-SIGNER PARTIALLY SECURED BONDS: If an agent advises you that a bond requires a co-signer and partial security, that means that the co-signer may not be fully qualified for the full bond amount, and we will require both the co-signer's information plus part collateral to be held until the case is closed as described above.
EXAMPLE: A bond is set at $5,000.00. We would collect the premium, in this instance let's say 15%, or $750.00, as well as an application from both the Defendant and co-signer, and a sum between 10% and 80% of the amount of the bond, to be held until the case is closed and the Defendant has made all court hearings as described above.
We are available 24 hours a day, but during the late night hours, give us a call so we can meet you at the office, or better yet, we can meet you at the jail!
