The services of a bail agent will often be used when someone is arrested by an indemnitor, who is usually a family member or friend, to obtain release of their loved one. However, many people don’t know what a bail agent actually does.
“Our bail agents at All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita will get your loved one out of custody until his or her court date,” said Inessa Chavez, vice president of All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita. “Unit the criminal matter is resolved, your loved one can continue his or her day-to-day life.”
The family member or friend of the arrested will meet with a bail agent at All American Bail Bonds to get more information about how bail bonds work and which bail bond would be best for the certain case.
