If you’ve never been in a position where you’ve been asked to help get someone out of the San Mateo County Jail it’s natural to have lots of questions about how bail bonds work. If you’ve never worked with a San Mateo bondsman you’ll want to ask the following two questions before signing any paperwork.
First, you’ll want to ask about the terms and conditions of a bail bonds payment plan. Although some clients choose to pay the bondsman’s fee in full, most choose to pay the balance off over time. If you opt for a bail bonds payment plan be sure to ask about interest, finance fees, if you’ll be charged a credit check fee and how long you’ll have to pay off the balance.
Second, you’ll want to ask if a bondsman can be sent to the jail immediately. Just because a company answers their phone 24-hours a day that’s not to say that they post bail bonds 24-hours a day. If the bondsman is unable to help you right away, it’s OK to hang up and call someone else.
