Frequently Asked Questions
A bail bond is a financial guarantee to the court that the defendant will appear for all court appearances. The defendant remains out of jail on bond until his/her case is dismissed or until the defendant is found guilty.
We are licensed by the State of Missouri to post bail bonds in all counties throughout the state.
Usually 10% of the bond amount. We can offer payment plans under some circumstances if the fee is too much to pay upfront.
The vast majority of bail bonds are posted at the county jail where the defendant is being incarcerated at. Under special circumstances a judge will require a bond to be posted in Open Court.
We meet clients at any jail, anytime. At Pittman Bail Bonds we post bail bonds 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including holidays.
Almost every bail bond will require a co-signer. The co-signer is financially liable for the full face value of the bond. The co-signer is also responsible for any expenses accrued in the event of a bond forfeiture.
