About Our Company
1st Class Bail Bonds, Inc. was founded by Bonnie Plotkin Merrick, a 30 year veteran of the bail bond industry. Her values and ethics are the foundation this company was built on.
As an active member of CBAA and OCBAA, she is able to stay current on matters related to the bail bond industry that could affect her clients, her business or the entire bail bond industry.
The world of arrest and bail is complicated. When a family member is arrested, the entire process can be stressful and overwhelming, especially if it is the first time someone has been arrested. On the positive side, the bail bond companies not only help you to put down a deposit, but also have additional perks to help you through the process. Learn more about these perks, the companies that can guide you through them, and how to get out on the other end when your loved one is released from prison.
Arrest warrants are essential for many forms of bail. When a person is arrested, the police issue an arrest warrant. The arrest warrant details all pending charges. If you visit a bail company, you will find details of the warrant, the warrant itself, an estimate of the possible bail and a number of papers.
If you prepare all the formalities in advance, you can eliminate delays early, as I have done here, here and here.
Warrant checks can also help if your family member is arrested. Bail companies search for warrants on a daily basis and can help you access information through direct links to the option database. A staff member will provide details of similar cases, estimated deadlines for future court proceedings and possible penalties for offenders. A bail company will read out arrest warrants and set expectations for bail and possible penalties. If there are other outstanding charges, warrants can be issued and bail amounts changed.
Search warrants can avoid delays and give you a better sense of the amount you will have to pay to the bail company. Contact with an arrested family member is essential for the exchange of information. Quick access can shorten prison time and eliminate time spent in a cell. Experience can help to avoid problems if you are a family member and follow the company’s guidance on deposit bonds.
Prisons use a collect-a-call system to calculate phone calls. If multiple calls need to be billed, the fees are added up.
As an alternative to face-to-face calls at their own end, bail companies accept bulk calls to talk to inmates. The call process helps to answer questions and provide information so that you do not waste additional money and resources. If you have questions about the bail money for the detainee, you can ask the bail company to answer the detainee’s needs in a separate call.
For example, if a person has stashed some extra money, you can make a deposit. As soon as an arrest is followed by a court case, many legal decisions have to be made.
To get help and guidance at every step of the process, you should seek the help and advice of a lawyer. A lawyer may have more expertise in certain criminal cases. For example, you need a drug expert or someone with experience of drunk driving or accidents. Instead of blindly calling a solicitor in your area, you can seek advice from a bail company. A bondsman who works with lawyers on a daily basis can help you find a recommended lawyer to represent your case.
A lawyer who takes calls from prisoners can offer advice on bail and how to proceed. They can also seek legal advice if the case goes beyond the original arrest. Bail Bond Location Finding several prisons and courthouses and visiting bail bond companies may seem like an easy but not always feasible option.
Whatever the reason, many bond people are flexible enough to meet you somewhere else. For example, if you live near a prison or court, a bail company can meet with you at that location without going through all the formalities and details. If you live further away or have no means of transport, you can meet near your home. They do not have to travel the full distance to prison or court before the person is released.
Much of the process can be completed by phone. Bail bond companies will send you documents by e-mail or fax, which you can fill in, or you can do it on your own. Once the call is complete, you will need to personally sign the paperwork to complete the process. Some companies also accept credit card payments over the phone. Telephone communication is ideal today as we navigate through the COVID 19 pandemic and look for ways to avoid face-to-face contact due to distance.
The ultimate goal is to make the bail process smoothly run and to help you reunite as quickly as possible with an arrested family member. For more information on deposit discounts contact us. Our experts can help you with orientation and answer any questions you may have.
