Bail Bonds Out Of State
When you or a loved one has to travel away from home, it’s not always smooth sailing.
Law enforcement can sometimes be involved and even lead to getting arrested while out of state.
This can create trouble when trying to post bail.
Transfer Bonds are an option that allows people to get back home as soon as possible.
Bail Bonds help secure release by ensuring the court that an arrested person will return for their trial date when called upon – transfer bonds are a particular kind of bail bond that is applicable over different states or jurisdictions.
A transfer bond is posted with the same court in two different states; this allows people who have been arrested in another state to pay their bond and return home. It’s important to know that the process of transferring a bail bond is complex.
An experienced, licensed bail bondsman is often needed to help negotiate a transfer bond agreement between two states as well as ensuring that all legal requirements are met. Utilizing an experienced bail bondsman will ensure the safety and security of a person being transferred from one state to another while in custody. You or your loved one can get back home quickly and efficiently with the help of transfer bonds.
What Are Transfer Bonds?
When somebody is arrested away from home, it’s not always feasible for their family to reach them quickly.
Luckily, transfer bonds provide an alternative instead of waiting for relatives to arrive in order to get out of jail.
Transfer bonds are bail bonds arranged in the defendant’s home state and they function differently than local bail bonds.
Each jurisdiction has its own set of regulations when it comes to issuing licenses for bail bond agents who work within that area.
Consequently, your hometown agent may not be able to post a bail bond if the arrestee is detained elsewhere.
The transfer process entails using a local agent who communicates with professionals in the other region on behalf of you or your loved one signing all documents and paying fees locally
without having to travel there. The person who is responsible for the bond being posted with the court is the out-of-state bondsman.
This individual ensures that whoever has been released from jail will appear in court when required.
How to Arrange Transfer Bonds?
When it comes to securing release for a loved one through transfer bonds, the preparatory work involves communication between your local bail bond provider and an out-of-state bonds company.
To make sure everything goes smoothly, you need to have certain information handy at the outset.
This includes the location of the jail (facility name, city, state), their detainee or inmate number, the charge they face, how much the bail is set for and their next court date.
It is important to wait until after booking concludes with bail already set before beginning any transfer bond process.
Local Bail vs. Bond Transfer
The laws and fees for bail bonds can differ from state to state, with transfer bonds requiring an extra fee called a Transfer Bond Execution Fee which is typically between $50-100. Further, these trans-state bonds require more labor hours to complete, therefore resulting in higher costs than regular local bail bonds. As such, you should anticipate paying more for the transfer bond process.
When bail bond services are utilized, the time it takes to process and secure release may vary depending on the state.
Generally speaking, someone held in a local jail can be released relatively quickly after paying bail, usually within a few hours.
On the other hand, arranging for transfer bonds is more complicated and therefore tends to take longer than local bonds.
If electronic processing (such as email signatures) is used by your bail bonds provider, then this can significantly reduce the amount of time needed for completion of the process.
However, even with these advancements in technology, transfer bonds will still typically require longer to arrange compared to local bail bonds.
In Connecticut, who is responsible for a Transfer Bond?
Similar to surety bonds, Transfer Bonds require a third party to submit the necessary paperwork and take full responsibility of the accused while they are out on bail.
This obligation falls upon the family member who applies for the bond as well as the bail bond company that initiates the out-of-state release.
These parties are responsible for handling the financial aspect of the bail bond.
