When Should I call a Bondsman in North Dakota?

If you are asking yourself, “when should I call a "bondsman in North Dakota” you are probably either sitting in the Williams County Jail or know someone who is sitting in a North Dakota jail and needs your help. Either way, the answer is...the sooner the better! 


For most folks, the way out of jail is finding a bondsman near me to help post bond. This is because if you want to be released from jail you will have to pay something called a bond or a bail bond


A bondsman can be helpful when you do not have access to the full amount of money required for your bail. You can also utilize their services to help you pay for your bail when you do not want to use your own spare cash for the full amount of the bond. 


Hiring a bondsman is similar taking out a loan. The bondsman will pay your bail for a fee based on the amount of your bail and your and/or your loved one’s credentials and agreement to abide by all rules made by the judge and to appear back in court when the court says it is time for you to do so. 


Bail amounts can range from the hundreds to the thousands of dollars and will depend on several factors such as your ties to the community and if you have any other charges currently filed against you or if you have a past history of criminal charges. 


If you have already failed to appear in court on a prior charge, you can expect the judge to take this into consideration and the amount your bail is set at could be greatly affected. Generally crimes that involve bodily harm will receive a higher bond if the allegation involves aggravated circumstances or involved a weapon.


The time to call a bail bond company is whenever you get the first chance to do so! If you or a loved one has been arrested, they are now involved in a legal process with the North Dakota courts. 


Having a licensed professional bail bond company such as 10-Minute Bail Bonds on your side can shorten your time behind bars providing you the fastest bakken area bail bonds and thus helping you get back to your regular life routine and responsibilities.
