Penny Wise and Pound Foolish
8:27 pm mst
PENNY WISE AND POUND FOOLISH
Many people try to save money by posting their own cash. With really small bonds or bonds the Court will forfeit for fines, it doesn't matter. But with larger bonds we recommend you use a bondsman.
1. We will ensure that your bond refund is returned promptly to you once the bond is exonerated. We will instruct the Defendant on what to do and what to say to the Court to expedite the refund process after sentencing.
2. We have the power to rearrest the Defendant if at anytime the Defendant gives you reason to believe they will not go to their hearing, or if they violate their conditions of release (drinking, using drugs). If you post a bond yourself, you have no power to rearrest or revoke the bond.
We have heard many stories where someone in an attempt to save money sends a friend or relative down to post the bond. When the Court has finished with the case, they refund the bond back to the bond poster. When the bond poster gets the money back, they refuse to return the funds to you or insist they haven't gotten it.
Avoid the confusing bond window schedule and the frustration of posting Phoenix bail bonds. Allow us to handle this for you. The small fee you pay to have a legal professional post your bond is worth the security in getting it done right.
