My son was arrested on felony domestic violence charges a few hours ago and he’s in the process of being booked into the Maguire Jail. I’ve never needed to do anything like this before so I’m a little nervous because I have on idea how this works. The jailer told me his bail is $50,000 and he suggested I contact a bail bonds company. Will I need to put my house up to get my son out of jail? My son has never been arrested before and I can pay whatever the fee is going to be with my credit card.
Based on the information you’ve provided, it would be highly unusual that a bondsman would require you put up your home to secure the San Mateo bail bonds. A bondsman generally will ask for property collateral if the bail is very high (ie: hundreds of thousands of dollars) or if the cosigner is looking for a bail bonds payment plan, but their credit is a bit shaky.
