The purpose of a bail bond is that it provides a way for someone in custody to post bail (and thus be released from custody) even if they cannot afford the full amount of the bail that was set by the judge. For example, if the judge set your bail at $10,000, you could obtain a bail bond from a local bail bond agency like A-Affordable for $1,000. A-Affordable Bail Bonds would then post the full amount of the bail on your behalf, meaning you can enjoy your freedom while you wait for your court date.
The opportunity to avoid significant jail time is a major reason why bail bond agencies are so important. Spending even a week or two in jail not only results in lost wages, but can also lead to the loss of your job / income entirely. In this way, working with a bail bond agency to post your bail can ultimately save you money in the long run by avoiding loss of income — income that would be lost if you simply remained in jail to avoid posting bail altogether.
However, you may find yourself in a situation where even posting 10% of your bail (as a payment to the bail bond agency) may pose a serious financial challenge. Yes, $1,000 or $2,000 is less than $10,000 or $20,000, but these are still considerable amounts of money to have “laying around.”
This is why, to better serve our clients, A-Affordable Bail Bonds is happy to offer fair, flexible payment plans for your bail bond. Not only do we accept major credit cards as a form of payment for your bail bond premium, but we can also arrange “in-house” payment plans between you and A-Affordable Bail Bonds.
Applying for a payment plan with A-Affordable Bail Bonds is similar to any other kind of credit / payment plan application process. Your credit score and credit history will be taken into account, so be aware of that! If you’re concerned about your credit score, don’t worry — setting up a payment plan is easier than you might think, and it’s rare that our payment plans ever require significant collateral (if they require any at all).
We understand that jail time can have a significant “ripple effect” on the overall well-being of yourself, your family, and your loved ones. Even if you’re completely confident that the charges against you will not stick, your life can be disrupted simply by the fact that you must wait in custody or post bail while you await your day in court. Our payment plans are offered to help you avoid this situation so you can get back to the life you’ve always enjoyed!
