"Walk-Thru" Bail Bonds


One of the clients we are assisting today will be utilizing a service we offer called a "Walk-Thru" Bond.  Frequently, people find out or suspect they have an active arrest warrant out for them.  This is usually for missing a court date or for failing to pay a traffic ticket on time; but can also be for far more serious offenses.  When a prospective client contacts us regarding an active warrant, we verify with the Courts and/or the Police Departments the status, warrant bond amount and any other information pertinent to posting the bond.

If the warrant allows, we then arrange with the Defendant to perform a "Walk-Thru" Bond.  A "Walk-Thru" Bond is typically just as its name implies; the Defendant is "Walked Thru" the Bonding process and bonded without being arrested or detained and without the usual 12-18 hour round trip of going through the jail.  The process is simple: we walk in to the Courthouse or Police Department with the Defendant, the clerk pulls up their warrant information, we execute the Bond, the clerk cancels the warrant and issues the Defendant a new Court date and the Defendant walks out of the facility with us.  Pretty simple!

Given that people's schedules are more hectic now than ever and that being arrested is not always in the best interest of remaining employed, "Walk-Thru" Bail Bonds offer an attractive solution to getting back on the right track of handling a case.

For more information regarding this or any of our other services, just give us a call.

Thank you,
