More often than not, the hardest part about bailing someone out of jail for people is coming up with the down payment. Even though a bail bond cost significantly less than the bail itself, and bail bonds are usually paid off with a payment plan, that first payment can be difficult.
The down payment on a bail bond is usually larger than the subsequent monthly payments that will be made in the future. This is to try and make the monthly payments as small as possible. The more money you put up front, the less you have to pay later on down the line and the less time you have to spend making payments.
- Auto Title Loan – This is a type of loan where a lender gives you a small amount of money for a short amount of time and the vehicle title is given as collateral.
- Payday Advance – There are companies out there that will give people a small, usually under $500, short term loan. The idea is that the loan will hold you over until your next payday, which is when you usually pay off the loan.
- Income Tax Return – This can be a large sum of money that you were not counting in your monthly budget, so why not use it to rescue a loved one from jail?
- Out Of State Relative – As long as you have at least one co-signer in California, it does not matter where the money comes from. If you have relatives living outside of California who want to help by sending money, they can do just that.
