Because each case is unique, the amount needed to bail out of jail varies. But the amount that is determined is based on these four things:

  1. Whether the defendant has American Citizenship
  2. Criminal history – DUI arrests, thefts, etc.
  3. The charge and reason for imprisonment
  4. Who the person is who will be providing the signature to place bail (the indemnitor)

Typically, the process takes anywhere from 8-12 hours, depending on how many people are being released beforehand.

Indemnitor definition: An indemnitor is someone who makes themselves responsible by signing the necessary paperwork to post your bail. The financial obligation is placed upon their signature to make sure that the person who is released from jail upholds their promise to appear to all court hearings. They will need to check in with you to make sure that you are following the regulations as directed.

Who can be an indemnitor (signature for bail bond)?

  1. Be a U.S. citizen.
  2. Have a social security number.
  3. Have a valid driver’s license.
  4. Be employed.
  5. Live in Hidalgo County.

If someone is arrested and doesn’t want to finish their allotted time determined for them to spend in jail, they will be asked to post bail.

The bail bond acts as a guarantee that the person released will appear in court after they get out of jail. Once out of jail, this person will be required to attend a necessary court hearing that determines whether their case is finished or if any proceedings are necessary. Sometimes more than one preceding is necessary. The monetary bail amount is always different and is determined by a judge. The defendant is released if they post that amount in full.

If the charge is a misdemeanor the defendant can expect the case to take 3-6 months for a court date.

If the charge is a felony the defendant can expect the case to take 4-6 months for a court date.

No one plans on getting arrested, but when it happens we know how important it is for you to be there for your loved ones. As a family owned and operated business, we treat each individual case with relevance and personal care.
