The Bail Process
Who We Are
While others may advertise in the Florida Keys, they may not have a local office here and may not even be properly licensed. Do your research and steer clear of any advertisements lacking clear addresses. The last thing you want is to have to hunt down a shady fly by night agency to retrieve any property you may be required to place for security. You will always know where we are. Furthermore, when dealing with a non-local company, the bail process can be postponed for hours while they journey from the mainland. We are local, so we can post the bond without delay and have your loved one out of jail and into your arms as quickly as possible. Call for an immediate consultation free of charge.
About Monroe County Bail Bonds
There are two ways of going about obtaining bail in the state of Florida. Those two ways are as follows: 1. A Cash Bond which is the equivalent of you posting the total bail amount in cash or cashier's check at the detention facility to get your family member or friend released. (i.e. John Doe is arrested and given a $5000 dollar bond by that counties magistrate, in order to post a cash bond, someone must obtain $5000 cash, take it to the jail and arrange his release) Many times court cases can take months or years to be resolved and in the meantime those funds are frozen with the county. If the defendant makes all his required appearances, upon disposition and total clearing of the case whomever put up this money to the court will be eligible to receive back the said money minus any fines
Bail refers to the amount needed to get a person released from jail. Every county is different but the bail amount is set one of two ways. In some counties it is set through a predetermined bond schedule especially if the criminal offense is a misdemeanor. If there is no bond schedule in that county or the charge is a felony (a criminal charge that can be punished with more than a year in prison) then it is set by a judge at first appearance, usually within 24 hours of the arrest. In either situation, after the bail is set friends or family are able to post bond to have their significant other released, and It is understood that the release on bail is contingent upon the defendant or detainee returning to court each and every time he/she is summoned to do so.
