Starting the Bail Bonds Process
Once you get the news of an arrest your first call should be to your bail bonds agent. At Mesquite Bail Bonds, many of our clients are referred to us by others who have used our services. Word of mouth is the best advertising and offers you a chance to learn about us, first hand from someone who has experience with our agency. When you call our Mesquite, NV bail bond office, an agent will immediately start the bail bonds process by gathering the information they need. You can then complete the process over the phone, in person or in a digital format, such as email or fax.
The next step is securing the bond by paying the 10% premium. The 10% premium is mandated by the state and is non-refundable. The amount is non-negotiable and is equal to 10% of the total amount of the bond being processed. The premium can be paid in cash, personal check, money order, cashier's check, or credit/debit card. If you are paying by cash, check or money order, you will need to stop by the office or have our agent come to you to finalize the agreement. If you are paying digitally, the payment can be processed over the phone at 702-342-1019, saving additional time and expediting the process.
During the application process, the bail bonds will go over the bail bond agreement so that you know all of your rights and responsibilities as a co-signer. They will answer any questions you may have and provide you with any additional information you may need concerning the court and the defendant's scheduled appearances. Once the application process has been completed, the next step is to go to the jail and post the bond.
When your loved one is released into the custody of the bail bonds agent, they will be informed of their legal rights as they pertain to being released on “bond”. They will be advised of their court date and if there were any stipulations put in place by the court. The defendant must agree to appear at all hearings that are scheduled by the court as well as remain within the court's jurisdiction while they are out on bond.
When working with a bail bonds agency, it's important to be as transparent as possible when it comes to the defendant's location and their personal information. A bail bond agent requires check-ins that are set up for daily or weekly, depending on the nature of the charges. The defendant must also notify the bail bonds agency of any changes in their personal information that includes:
- Change of address
- Change of phone number or email
- Change of employment
While this may seem unimportant to many, it shows a sense of responsibility and willingness to assume responsibility for their actions. If the defendant follows the guidelines and does everything they can to work with the bail bonds agent, they will do the same and go the extra mile to make sure the defendant has everything they need to get through this difficult and trying time.
