The Bail Bond Process PDF Print E-mail

Being in the industry for as long as we have we know that not all bail bonds are the same and the process will vary according to each individual defendant and cosigners situation.  However, typically the bail bond process will work as follow:


  1. You contact us at one of our 24 hour local Bail Bond office numbers.
    • For St. Louis County, St. Charles County, and Lincoln County, Missouri please call (636) 272-4477
    • For Boone County, Missouri please call (573) 442-5311
    • For ANY MISSOURI COUNTY not listed above please call (573) 442-5311 so we may match you up with one of our affiliate bail agents
  2. The Missouri Bail Agent will ask you for specific information about your friend or relative who has been arrested, including but not limited to the following:
    • What is the defendant's full legal name?
    • What is the defendant's date of birth?
    • What jail are they currently being held in?
    • What are they being charged with?
    • What is the full amount of their bail bond?
    • The bail bond agent may also require other basic information about the accused including personal history, where they work or attend school, any previous arrests or convictions, and residency information.
  3. We will then meet you at the jail they are being held at to receive payment and go over the required paperwork and responsibilities.
    • Typical charge for a bail bond in the State of Missouri is 10% of the total bail amount.
    • We require 5% down and can work out a payment plan for the remainder to qualified applicants and bonds only.
    • We accept cash, money order, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. All credit cards are subject to a 5% addition fee on the charged amount (not the bail amount)
  4. Once all the required paperwork is completer we will sign the jails bond form to arrange for their release.
    • Please have patience. Release from jails varies according to county or municipality. Release from the St. Louis County or St. Charles County facilities can take as much as 5 or 6 hours. Typically though smaller municipal holding facilities are much quicker to respond. We will work assist you in determining a more accurate time of release upon bonding.

If you have any questions about your specific situation and if it pertains to this ordered process then please feel free to call one of out local bail bond offices for clarification.
