How SimplyBail Works

WHAT IS SIMPLY BAIL?

Simply Bail is the completely secure, hassle free, fastest way to get your friend or loved one out of jail! It’s the middle of the night, and you get that frantic call from your son/daughter, friend, or loved one that they have been arrested and they need help. You think: “What do I do?” “How do I get him/her out of jail?” “How much is it going to cost?” “Do I have to drive to the jail or a bail bond agent in the middle of the night?” Simply Bail was designed to handle the entire process from locating which jail your friend or loved one is in, to finding out how much money it will cost to bail them out, to helping you select and work with a bail bond agent, to the ultimate success of your friend or loved being released. By submitting some basic information about your friend or loved one, along with your payment information, you can get him/her out of jail without ever having to step foot in a jail or dealing with the hassle of going to a bail bond agent’s office.

HOW DOES SIMPLY BAIL WORK?

You answer a few questions right here, and then we locate your friend or loved one who has been arrested. Next, we use the information you gave us, along with information from the jail and court systems to determine if bail has been set. If they are eligible to make bail and be released, we ask you to select a bail bond agent from a list of licensed agents, and you provide us with a little information about yourself and a credit/debit card. Once the bail bond agent approves your request, your payment will be securely processed and the bail bond agent will arrange your friend or loved one’s release. Simply Bail is that simple! And one of the best features about Simply Bail is you can track the whole process from start to finish through a dedicated link we send you, along with notifications at each step like: (1) we have located your friend or loved one and he/she is eligible to make bail and be released; (2) here is how much bail has been set for, and the non-refundable fee a bail bond agent will charge you to get him/her released; (3) the bail bond agent you selected has received and approved your request; (4) your bail bond agent has processed your payment; (5) your bail bond agent has arranged for your friend or loved one’s release; and (6) YOUR FRIEND OR LOVED ONE HAS BEEN RELEASED. Along the way, you can even use Simply Bail to directly communicate with your bail bond agent, and send other information and documents if needed. Simply Bail is really that simple!
