You Might Have the Wrong Idea About Transfer Bonds
Because of its name, the concept of a transfer bond can be a little misleading. While most people might think that a transfer bond is needed when a person in custody needs to be transferred somewhere else, this is not the case. A transfer bond is actually a bail bond written for a person in another jurisdiction to get them out of jail there. In this example, a jurisdiction is an area of authority controlled by another police force. Let’s say that your sister get’s arrested in Dallas, Texas but you live in Houston. She calls you up one night and says that she has been arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence. Now, considering Houston and Dallas are rather far from each other, we are pretty sure that you don’t want to have to drive all the way up there just to bail your sister out. Luckily, a transfer bond can come to your rescue. Simply give us a call at Kocian Bail Bonds and we will set up a transfer bond to get your sister out of jail without you ever having to get in your car.
How Does the Transfer Bond Process Work?
Acquiring a transfer bond is actually a relatively simple process. To start the process, first figure out where the person you want to bail out is located. It is essential that the bondsman knows the jail or police station that the person is being detained in and the county in which they are located. After this information has been established, your bondsman will arrange for the transfer bond to be delivered to the facility where the person needing to be bailed out is located. Once the appropriate payments have been made, the person will be released on bail and is free leave the facility that they were being detained in.
