We can determine that when you call our company by asking you a few questions. Some of the questions we ask may seem a bit personal, however, we need to evaluate the risk we are taking on in underwriting the bond. Details such as your employment, home-ownership, credit rating, citizenship, family status, etc., will be discussed.
We will also ask questions of the same nature about the defendant in custody. We’ll then determine whether we can do what is called a “signature bond” or, if we’ll need to take collateral, such as California real property.
