How Do Okeechobee County Bail Bonds Work?

If you or someone you know has ever been arrested in Okeechobee County then they have probably been to the Okeechobee County Jail. You are going to want to get in and out of there as fast as possible, not spending any more time in here then necessary. 

What usually happens when you get arrested or turn yourself in for a warrant is that you are detained in Okeechobee County Jail until you get in front of the judge for the first time. At this point the judge will set a court date and set the amount of your bond, or "bail". Depending upon the severity of the crime you may be released with no bond or bail required, but this is oftentimes not the case. For more serious crimes or for repeat offenders, the bond amount is typically set at a dollar amount that is out of reach for the individual or their family.

This is where Above All Bail Bonds comes into play. We provide Okeechobee County bail bonds to help those out who don't have the money to put up the bond on their own. What typically happens is that you will put up a small percentrage of the bond and we'll put up the rest. When the defendant shows up for their scheduled date the bond amount is returned to us. Not only do we put the money up for you but we also assist you in navigating this tricky process.

A Surety Bond more commonly known as a (Bail Bond) involves a relative or friend contacting a bail agent. A Bail Agent is a licensed agent backed by an insurance company. When a bondsman posts bail, they are pledging the full amount of bail, guaranteed by an insurance company having adequate assets to satisfy the face value of the bond. A Bail Bond is the safest form of bail.

+

For this service, the defendant is charged a premium (10% of the bail amount in Florida). For example, if the bail amount is $10,000.00, the premium charged is $1,000.00. All bondmen are required by law to charge 10% unless the full amount of the bond is less than $1,000.00; in that case the fee is $100.00. For example, if the bail amount is $750.00, the premium charged is $100.00. Convenient payment arrangements available!

+

The 10% premium is fully earned once the bail bond is posted with a jail or court. This fee is non-refundable once the case is completed.

+

Collateral is anything of value used to financially secure a bail bond. Collateral is often not necessary and is factored on a case by case basis. Some examples of collateral include a signature from a qualified indemnitor, credit cards, houses, cars, boats, jewelry.

+
Once your case is completed and our agency receives notice from the court, we will return all collateral in a timely fashion. By Florida Law all collateral must be returned within 21 days after the bond has been discharged.
+
The Indemnitor is a family member or friend who makes an agreement with the surety to secure any loss. They are responsible for the full amount of the bond if the defendant fails to appear in court.
+

After a defendant is booked into a county jail, it usually takes anywhere from 2 to 6 hours to be released on bail. We wish we could speed up the process but county jails operate at their own pace. Above All Bail Bonds does everything possible to expedite the defendant’s release. Let us assure you we will be by your side every step of the way.

+
Revoking a bond, although possible in most cases, is generally not recommended unless you are concerned that there is a strong possibility the defendant will fail to show up for scheduled court dates. You will lose your premium and could incur other fees. If you used a Bondsman, the terms for revoking your bond will depend upon the language used in the contract/surety agreement you signed. If it contains language that allows you to notify the bondsman that you no longer wish your collateral to be at risk, then yes, you may revoke. You will need to contact your bail bondsman for details on this process and whether or not you would be eligible to revoke your bond.
