When Should I Call A Bondsman In Memphis, Tennessee?

If you have ever woken up in the Shelby County Jail or at 201 Poplar Avenue, I am pretty sure you have asked yourself, “when should I call a bondsman?”. If you are a parent or guardian of a child and have come to find out that your child has been taken into custody by the Shelby County Juvenile Court system, then it is a good time to call a bondsman.

In general, the rule of thumb is to call a bondsman as soon as possible if you think you might need additional monies to make your bail. Bail amounts can be set in the hundreds to thousands of dollars and it can be safe to say that most working folks just don’t have that kind of money laying around.

A bondsman is there to help relieve you of the financial strain that can be put upon friends and families when paying the full amount of a bond is out of their financial reach. The bondsman is there to help you make financing a bond affordable much like a loan officer is there to help you pay for a purchase or pay off a debt.  

The bondsman is also there for you and your family to help navigate the bail bond process to make posting your bond as quick and easy as possible so that you can get out of jail asap and back to your normal life.

If you are calling a bondsman on behalf of a person who is in jail and you were not able to get very much information from them, there is no need to worry. Maybe your conversation was cut short due to a bad cellular connection or maybe you are getting your information second hand because you were not able to talk to them directly.

No matter the situation, do not stress! Your bondsman can do an online jail lookup or inmate lookup to find out where they are being held and other pertinent details. Once the bondsman confirms the location your loved one is being held, you can begin the bail bonds application process.

Remember, if you can’t call a bondsman yourself, asking your friend or family member to do so for you is the next best thing. In fact, it’s never a bad idea to carry the business card of a fully licensed bail bonds company such as United Bonding Company. You never know when their phone number is the next one you or someone you know, will want to be calling.
