The process of bail is regulated by the State of Louisiana . A judge within the parish of arrest sets the bail amount. Once bail is set, an Express Bail Bonds agent charges 12%. (The State of Louisiana regulates this fee. All bail bond companies charge the same rate.) Once payment is processed and there is a cosigner who meets our qualifications, the bond is then posted, and the defendant is released.
A cosigner, or someone willing to sign for the defendant, is responsible for the following three things: ensuring the defendant makes all appearances in court; verifying that the defendant has notified Express Bail Bonds of all upcoming court appearances; and guaranteeing the premium is paid (if applicable).
The responsibilities of a defendant are as follows: Upon being released, the defendant will need to immediately report to the local office and complete the necessary paperwork. After completion of the paperwork, the defendant will receive upcoming court date information. The defendant must report all new court dates to their local Express Bail Bonds office by either coming in personally or notifying us by phone at 985-517-6608. The defendant must show up to all scheduled court dates.
There are several benefits to consider. Defendants who are bonded out can go back to work, school, home, family, and continue with usual daily life. Being released on bond also permits them to prepare a defense and prevents the infliction of punishment prior to any conviction.
The bonding company can be reasonably assured that a defendant released on a surety bond will appear in court by involving the friends and family of the defendant. Soon after a friend or a family member of the defendant has cosigned for the defendant, the bail agent will sign the defendant's bond.
You will have to get permission from the bonding office in writing before attempting to do so. If the court has given you direct instructions not to leave the state or country, you must then get permission from the bail agent and the court before leaving or you will be subject to arrest.
Once the defendant is back in custody, the bond can be surrendered and your liability will be terminated. There are a few problems that can arise in this situation. If you decided to surrender the bond, you will lose the premium that was paid. If you decided to get the defendant out on bond again, you will now have to post two new bonds and pay the premium on both bonds again.
Yes, all paperwork can be completed online and payment can be processed using a credit or debit card! You never have to leave your home! The paperwork takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on the complexity of the transaction. The release time can be one hour or less for local police stations or 1-2 hours for a parish jail. Please remember that these times are not guaranteed, however, but are meant to provide a general estimate. We are proud of our minimal application process!
