If you happen to be arrested for some reason, it is likely that you will want to be discrete about the situation. Some people don’t want friends or family to even know, or at the least not involve them. Because of this, we are often asked can you post bail yourself? The answer is sometimes, and here is how it can work.

If this is the first time you have been arrested and if you are from the area and have a job and credit score, then you may be able to be the only signer of the bail bond. The bail bondsman will determine if you don’t pose much of a financial risk. We need to know that you are able to guarantee a bail bond without another signer. If you are arrested somewhere that you don’t live, have bad credit, or have some other unstable financial situation, then we will usually require someone outside of jail to be the co-signer for the bail bond. This person will need to contact A-1 Bail Bond Service to assist with getting the funds for the bail. The amount will be set by the judge and can range anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars.

Regardless of your situation, you need to be honest with the bail bond company. Even if you aren’t honest, it will get found out since a bail bondsman will check into your credit as well as your home ownership status, and more. We do this to ensure that all the information provided by the person seeking a bail bond is accurate. Indiana has a set 10% fee that must be paid up front when working with a bail bondsman. This means that someone will at least have to possess that fee and in Elkhart Indiana, or any area of Indiana, it is required that the bail bond fee is paid in one amount. Financing options are not available for this  10%. Each state has its own bail bond laws.
