Can I Co-Sign for a Parent’s Bail Bond?
You just got word that one of your parents has been arrested, and you’re not sure what you should do. You’ve heard about bail bonds and are wondering if they are something you can co-sign for your parent.
As long as you are over the age of 18 and are willing to help out your parents, the answer is yes. We do urge you to carefully consider everything before you do. Co-signing for a bail bond is a big deal, even when the person named on the bond is a parent.
The first thing to consider is your financial situation. Is your credit rating decent? Do you own anything that you could use as collateral? Don’t assume that just because the answer is no, you won’t be able to help your parent. If the bail is low enough, it’s possible we’ll still want to work with you and help you get a bail bond for your parent.
Even if you aren’t in a position to co-sign for your parent’s bail bond, don’t be discouraged about talking to us. It’s highly likely that with our help, you may be able to think of someone who is in a position to co-sign for your parent.
One of the things we offer you and everyone else who is in your position is a free consultation. The great thing about our consultations is that they are always handled by a live person; you’re never left at the mercy of a chatbot that provides you with standard answers. The second great thing about our consultations is that they are available 24/7, and yes, that also includes all major holidays. The final thing you should know about our bail bond consultations is that they are completely free. Not only will we not charge you a dime for simply talking to us, but we also won’t pressure you into making a decision for your parent that you aren’t ready for.
Before you sign a contract to serve as a co-signer for your parent’s bail bond, there are a few things you need to consider. The first is whether you’re ready to make sure your parent attends all of their court dates. If you think they will leave town, ignore the court dates, or you’re simply too busy to make sure they attend, you may want to find someone else to handle the responsibilities of being the co-signer.
