Lots of people want to help bail a loved one out of jail. The problem is that you’re broke. The good news is that your lack of finances doesn’t stop you from helping out your loved one.

The first thing you need to know is that the fact you’re broke does mean that the court/jail won’t be willing to work with you. Their policy with bail is black and white. If you have the entire amount of bail, you can post it for your loved one. If you don’t have all the money needed, they remain in custody.

Some people hope to get around their lack of available cash by using a credit card, but the jail/court doesn’t accept this as a viable form of payment. While they will sometimes accept a check, they prefer that bail is paid in cash.

The next option is turning to a bail bonds agency. Some agencies will be willing to work with you, but others won’t. You’ll be pleased to know that not only will Hamblen County Bail Bonds happily work with you, we have a long history of working with people who want to help a friend out with bail but who don’t have the money readily available.

The support we offer comes in the form of our zero-down, zero-interest payment program. We have learned that the best way to handle the matter is to take a customized approach to each case.

We’ll work closely with you to create a payment system that doesn’t strain your finances. You’ll delight in the knowledge that not only are you able to provide your loved one with the support they need, but you’ll also do so in a way that doesn’t force you to sacrifice rent money or skimp on your grocery purchases. The best thing about our payment plan program is that because we don’t charge interest, you’ll never pay more than 10% of the required bail.

Once we’ve settled on a payment plan and the contracts are signed, we’ll draw up a bail bond with your friend’s name on it and take it directly to the jail. It usually doesn’t take long for us to post the bail bond or for the court the process it. As soon as all of that’s done, you’re loved one will be released from jail.
