Bail Bonding Facts


HOW DO I GET OUT OF JAIL? HOW DOES BAIL WORK?

A Bail Bond is formally known as a “Surety Bond.” A friend, relative, attorney, or even the defendant will contact Always Available Bail Bonds by phone or email. During the initial phone conversation, our Bail Agent will collect basic information about your situation. Once we have the information, we meet with your family or friends to make arrangements, complete the paperwork and post your Bail Bond. Then, we go over to the jail and post it.

WHEN IS COLLATERAL USED?

Although, most often not required, collateral is sometimes used to underwrite our larger Bail Bonds. Examples of collateral include equity in a house, cabin, piece of land, or cash. We hold the collateral until the defendant is done with their court appearances. After the defendant makes all of their court appearances, the collateral is returned.

CAN A BOND BE USED FOR FINES OR COURT COSTS?

No! A Bail Bond only guarantees that the defendant makes all court appearances. Fines, restitution, court costs, etc., are the responsibility of the defendant.  A Bail Bond CANNOT be taken to satisfy these costs.

HOW DO I CLEAR A WARRANT?

It’s best to deal with your case out of custody! First, call to see if you have a warrant. We provide free warrant checks throughout South Dakota.  If you have a warrant we will help you post a Bail Bond to clear the warrant and obtain a court date.  Often, we can help you get a court date without you needing to  turn yourself in to the warrant office.

DO YOU HAVE ADVICE FOR SELECTING AN ATTORNEY?

Yes! Always Available Bail Bonds works closely with attorneys throughout Rapid City and the Black Hills. While we cannot recommend a specific attorney, we can help you find those who specialize in specific areas of the law.
