Being thrown in jail is never a good thing. However, you can get out by posting bail. There are several ways of doing this, including through emergency bail bondsmen. This video explains what a bail bond is and how it gets you out of jail.

Bail is a deposit you make to the court when you are charged with a crime. It will get you out of jail and will be refunded to you if you show up to the following court dates. You or a loved one may post bail on your behalf.

Bail can be expensive, however, and it may be a good idea to hire the services of a bail bondsman to post bail for you. You will pay a percentage of the bail to the bondsman, usually 10%. The bondsman then posts bail on your behalf.

You won’t get your payment back from the bondsman, but it’s a lot less expensive than posting bail yourself. Make sure you follow up with the bail bondsman and the court when you are required. If you don’t, the bondsman can find and arrest you.
