Bail Bond Payments: What Happens if you Default On Your Payment
One of the reasons so many people prefer to use Covington Bail Bonds Plaquemine Parish rather than one of the other bail bond options is because we provide payment plans. The great thing about our payment plans is that they’re flexible. They’re interest-free. There are no hidden fees. Once the payments have been completed, all you’ll have paid is 12% of your bail.
Most of our clients have been extremely good about making sure their monthly bail bond payment is made on time. However, every once in a while a client will contact us and let us know that for some reason or another, they can’t make their upcoming payment. The first question these clients usually ask after filling us is if their inability to keep up on their payments means they’re going back to jail.
The truth of the matter is that no situation is completely black or white and the way we deal with the situation depends largely on how much money is at stake. The reason you’re going to be late with the payment. And how often you’ve been late with the payment.
We won’t deny that there are some situations where we contact the court and let them know that the payment on their surety payment wasn’t made and that we’re revoking the bail bond. When this happens, you will go back to jail. We don’t like this option any more than you do.
We strongly advise that you contact friends and family and see if there is any way they can help you out. The more they can chip in and help you stay on top of your payments, the better. The odds are good that they will be far more willing to help out if they know that this is a one-time thing to do to an unexpected financial crunch as opposed to long-term financial assistance.
The best way to stay on top of your bail bond payments is to become proactive. Don’t wait until a few days before the payment is due to start worrying about how you’re going to pay the bill. As soon as you realize finances are tight, start exploring other options. Considering getting a temporary second job. Is there anything you currently own that you can sell? Have you loaned money to friends who are now in a position to repay you?
The sooner you start looking for an alternative way to pay your bill, the smaller the odds become that you’ll be returned to jail.
