In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the initial types of bail bonds and release formats that may be available to those who have been arrested or placed in jail. There’s a whole range of bail formats here, from minor crimes that tend to require no bail at all to others that require a bit more involvement and financial stress.
At Beehive Bail Bonds, we’re proud to offer 24/7 bail bond services for any of our clients in need, whether the amount is large or small. We’ll help ensure prompt release to assist you or your friend or loved one, making sure as little time as possible is spent in jail. In today’s blog, we’ll go over a few lesser-used bond types that you might find in certain situations or areas of the country, plus how these compare to other bail bonds you’re more familiar with.
This is a bond type that’s not used in all states, though they are generally accepted in Utah and many other surrounding states. As the name suggests, this bond type allows the person in question to use their property as collateral – in most cases, the full rights of the property must be used, with no partial or incomplete rights being accepted.
Many property types can be used here, though standard real estate is the most frequently-used by far. One important element to note with property bonds: Unlike surety bonds or certain other types, which can usually be obtained in an hour or two, property bonds take longer. They require assessment of the property and its value, plus a court hearing to confirm everyone is on the same page. For this reason, property bonds often take weeks, and are therefore not used in cases where immediate release is necessary.
Specifically meant for non-citizens and non-residents of the United States, immigration bail bonds are significantly rarer. These kinds of bonds are often difficult to obtain, mainly because of the lack of legal status when someone who falls under this classification is arrested. Luckily, our bail bondsmen can help if you or someone you know is in this position.
In certain cases where a federal crime is the one being punished, federal bail bonds might be required. These are generally roughly similar to property bonds, with a court-rendered transaction that sometimes won’t even involve a specific bail bondsman. However, while only property can be used in a property bond situation, cash is usually also acceptable in cases of federal bail bonds.
