In the State of Mississippi the first and most common way to get a bail bond is by locating a bail bondsman. A bail bondsman will provide for the cost of the money and insurance once a fee is paid. This fee is usually ten percent or so of the total amount of the bond. This amount can often be financed such as by placing a lien on a home. In most cases, there is a need for collateral to secure the bond. Once this is done, the bail bondsman will notify the authorities as directed in Mississippi and the defendant will be released on bail.
Bail bondsmen are available throughout the state of Mississippi. This includes bail bonds in Jackson, in Gulf Port, and bail bonds in Biloxi and in the rest of the state as well. Contacting a bail bondsman can be quickly as they are usually available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week to service the needs of the defendant.
