You already know that communication is the key to a highly successful life relationship. What you might not realize is that the same is true when it comes to your relationship with your bail bonds agent. The better you are about connecting with your bail bond agent and alerting them to changes in your legal and personal circumstances that could impact your bail bond agreement the better.
The grounds for good communication should be laid as soon as you first connect with SmartBail Bail Bonds and start to form a bail bond relationship. Key things to discuss as early as the initial consultation include:
- How much your fee will be.
- If you’re eligible for a 20% bail bond discount.
- If you’ll need to make zero-interest payment plans.
- How to set up the payment plan so that it works into your budget.
- The terms of your bail.
- The various issues outlined in the bail bond contract.
- If you’ll need a co-signer.
- If collateral is needed.
In most cases, there is very little reason to stay in contact with your bail bond agent once you’ve been released from jail but there are always exceptions. Examples of issues you should contact your bail bond agent about while you’re out on bail include:
- If you’ve done something to violate the terms of your bail.
- If there’s going to be a problem with your bail bond payments.
- If you’ve suddenly experienced a change in your employment.
- When you’ve suddenly experienced a change in residence.
- If you’ve learned that you’re about to be arrested for something else.
