¿Que es una fianza y como funciona?

Compilamos una definición y preguntas que pueden surgir durante la liberación de la carcel.

Una “fianza” es un deposito y una promesa a la corte para persuadir la liberación de la carcel de un acusado. El acusado regresara a la corte o perderá la fianza (y posiblemente ser acusado por el cargo de no presentarse ante la corte..

Ya que el preso es anotado, la cantidad de la fianza es determinada para su liberación. Entonces puede llamar a uno de nuestros agentes profesionales de fianzas para iniciar el proceso y ayudarle a su amigo o ser querido a “poner fianza.”

Un agente de fianzas es una persona autorizada a solicitar, negociar, recibir dinero y documentacion en nombre de una compania de seguros/ afianzadora.

El papeleo dura aproximadamente 15-30 minutos. Una vez que la cárcel recibe nuestro papeleo, el tiempo de liberación generalmente es de una hora o menos en estaciones de policía local y de 4 a 8 horas en las carceles de condado. En general, entre mas grande la carcel, el proceso demora mas tiempo.

Una vez que la fianza es aceptada por la corte o carcel somos responsables por la fianza y la cuota no se puede reembolsar.

Cada compañía tiene sus normas, pero en general aceptan:


· Bienes Raíces
· Autos
· Oro

When the bond has been ordered exonerated by the court. This happens when:


· The charges are dropped.
· The person enters into a negotiated plea and is sentenced.
· The person is granted deferred entry of judgement.
· The person is found innocent at trial.
· The person is sentenced at trial. Of course, the Collateral will only be returned if there is no outstanding balance due on the Premium.

There are remedies that can be done here as well, contact the bondsmen as soon as possible so that they can discuss your option in full detail with you.

The bond will be ordered forfeited by the court and a bench warrant is issued for the person’s arrest. The warrant will be entered in State and National locator systems and the fugitive may be apprehended. The Bail Agency will receive notice of the missed court appearance.

The Bail Agency normally calls the person’s home, work, and other references to try to find the fugitive and arrange a new court date As the co-signer you want to convince the fugitive to return to court as soon as possible. If the defendant reappears in court without delay you will only be liable for a small failure to appear fee and possibly court costs.

Typically, the longer the defendant delays making a new court date, the higher the fees will be. If ultimately the defendant has absconded and cannot be located within the time allowed by the court, the entire amount of the bond must be paid.

You will have to get permission from the bonding office in writing before attempting to do so. If the court has given you direct instructions not to leave the state or country you must then get permission from the bail agent and the court before leaving. Otherwise you are subject to arrest.
