What is a bail bond rewrite fee?
Avoid paying for the same bond twice!
If you’ve been arrested, posted bail, then made your first court appearance and found the case hasn’t been filed by the District Attorney’s office, you may need a bail bond written more than once to stay out of jail. Other bail businesses will charge you the bail premium again for a replacement bond. WE NEVER DO!
What is a Rewrite Fee?
After a defendant has been arrested they are required to be in court for arraignment. If the District Attorney fails to file charges at this point it doesn’t necessary mean the defendant is off the hook. It just means the D.A. is not ready or needs additional evidence to move forward with the case. Often times the D.A. files cases late, even months after the initial arrest took place.
If the defendant is out on bail, the bond is only good for 15 days after their arraignment. So, if the D.A. files the case beyond 15 days, the bail bond is no longer valid and automatically exonerated. However, to stay out of jail, a replacement bond will be required to the court when the D.A. is ready to file against the defendant.
Other bail bond companies require you to pay the premium again to issue a replacement bond. Not at Jason Meyerson Bail Bonds! We have a no-fee rewrite policy.
