If you are in need of bail support or other services related to the bail and release of a friend or loved one, we highly recommend contacting All-State Bonding Company as soon as possible to explain the situation. We handle every case on an individual basis and work with you to make sure we get the fastest results possible.
Step by Step – The Bail Bonds Process
1Defendant is jailed
Someone is arrested and booked into jail. This person is referred to as the defendant.
2Contact All-State Bonding Company
The defendant contacts family or friends to bail them out of jail or they can contact All-State Bonding directly to begin the process of posting bail. All of our decisions are made at the local bonding office located directly across from the Bibb County Jail in Macon, Georgia, which means you will have an answer faster than any other bonding company in town.
3Obtain a Co-Signer/Indemnitor
A co-signer or indemnitor is required for posting bail. The indemnitor is a friend, family member, employer, or member of the community who contractually guarantees that the defendant will appear at all of their court dates until the case is disposed of and pays the non-refundable bond fee.
4Provide Necessary Information
To set up the bail bond, we will need the indemnitor to provide payroll information, proof of income, and their social security number.
5Pay Bond Fee
After we obtain the necessary information, we complete the process and collect the non-refundable bond fee which is normally 12-15% of the bail amount and a $20 non-refundable jail fee. The paperwork normally takes about 25 minutes. We accept payment by credit card, debit card, and cash.
6Jail Releases Defendant
After we sign the bond, it may take anywhere from ten minutes to three hours for the jail to release the defendant.
7Receive Court Information
When the defendant is released, the jail will provide court date information that must be adhered to or the indemnitor will be responsible for the full amount of the bail.
8Consequences for Missing Court Date
If the defendant misses any court date required by the judge, the indemnitor is immediately responsible for the full amount of the bail. If the defendant is located and arrested by the bail enforcement agent, the indemnitor is responsible for all expenses the bail enforcement agent has incurred while searching for the defendant.
