Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get out of jail?
The normal time frame is usually a half hour if it’s a police department. On the other hand, it takes considerably longer in a correction center. We will do everything in our power to make it as convenient as possible for you.
What do I need to bond someone out of jail?
The fee, or down payment.
What is/are the fees?
Fees are set by the State of Connecticut. Feel free to call us for a consultation: (860) 558-2916.
Do I get the fee back after the bonded person appears in court?
No, the fee is non-refundable.
What is collateral and do I need to provide any?
Collateral is money we hold onto while a defendant is out on bail. The money is taken as an incentive to ensure the person’s appearance at scheduled court dates and is returned to the collateral donor once the bond is released by the court. The circumstances of every bond are a little different, but most bonds can be done without collateral. Some examples of collateral are cash, property, jewelry, cars, etc.
I have a warrant out for my arrest and I don't have a cosigner. Can you still bond me out?
What information do you need when I initially call in?
The following is a list of information that will help us to do the bond as quickly as possible. When you call us you should try to have as much of this information as possible. Don’t worry if you don’t or can’t get all the information; we can get it for you.
- Name of person in a correctional institution
- Birth date/Inmate Number of person (in jail)
- Social security number of defendant if available

What is the smallest bond you will handle?

Another company said they cannot write a bond below $500. Is this true?
That is not technically true; however, it is true that most companies will not write a bond that is less than $500.
