What is Required at the Time of Signing a Bail Agreement

One of the first big decisions you’ll have to make following your arrest is which bail bond company you want to work with. If you decide that Saint Tammany Parish Bail Bonds is best for you, the next step is signing a bail agreement.

The bail agreement is nothing more than a simple contract that lays out the limits of your bail, explains that you need to attend your court appearances, and outlines the payment plan we’ve designed for you. The agreement uses simple language and is very clear.

Having everything you need ready when we present your bail agreement means you can go to work right away. Not having everything ready leads to a significant delay.

Here’s what you’ll need to have on hand when you sign your bail agreement.

The first thing is 12% of your bail. In exchange for paying us 12%, we pay the court 100% of your bail. Remember, this is a fee. When your case reaches its conclusion, we keep the 12% fee.

Additional things you’ll need include:

  • Driver’s license or state ID number
  • Social security number
  • Proof of employment (if applicable)
  • Current address
  • Collateral (when applicable)

If someone is co-signing for your bail we will also need their information before we can finalize the bail agreement.

We want you to be comfortable with the terms of your bail and encourage you to ask lots of questions before you sign the contract. Once you have been released on bail, you’re free to contact us anytime that you need information about the contract.
