Miami Dade Emergency Bail Bond Process
How Do I Bail My Loved One Out of Jail?
Bailing a friend or family member out of Miami Dade jail is a serious responsibility and one that should not be taken lightly. If you do not feel comfortable or feel that the friend or family member is trustworthy or responsible enough to show up for all future court appearances then you should not bail them out. Should the defendant leave the area or fail to appear for court dates while you are not criminally liable you could be held civilly liable. You will be held responsible for any fees associated with court costs, the full bail amount, and apprehension costs should the defendant not go to court.
If you decide that you are comfortable bailing out your friend or family member you will either need to pay the full bail amount to the court or hire the services of a Miami Dade bail bondsman who will charge you a percentage of the bail bond amount and cover the rest of the bond in order to have the defendant released. After choosing a bail bond company you will need to meet them at the jail so that you can give them the funds they require and to sign the bail bond papers.
