Transfer Bonds

Is it Possible to Bail Out Someone Arrested in Another State?

If you or a loved one is arrested and detained in another state outside of Florida, Bazarte Bail Bonds can help. With a transfer bond, we can help arrange for a bailout from states outside of Florida. The important thing is to arrange for bail as soon as possible.  Spending time in jail could affect your employment and you will want to be released from custody to secure an attorney to assist in developing your defense strategy. Transfer bonds are more complicated than a local bail bond, but there are some advantages to dealing with a bondsman from your home state. They are similar to a surety bond in that they require a third party to complete the paperwork. The parties responsible for the cash involved in the bail bond are the family member who applies for the bond and the bail bond company that requests the out-of-state release.

Transfer Bonds

What are some reasons why a transfer bond may be your best option?

  1. For some bail bonds companies, they simply prefer not to work with non-local detainees as they may consider them a greater flight risk.
  2. While you could travel to the state where your loved one has been detained, this takes time and can be expensive. Securing bail without having to travel may make more sense.
  3. When you engage in a transfer bond, you are assuming the risk and responsibility. So, it’s important to make sure that the arrested person will make their court appearances.
  4. Transfer bonds are more complicated and more expensive, but it may make more sense to deal with a local bail bonds company to secure the release of someone arrested out-of-state.

What You Need to Know About Transfer Bonds

Transfer bonds require that there is a much more thorough collection of information about the arrested individual. Here is a list of important information that you will need to supply the bondsman.

  • The arrested persons birthdate
  • Their full name
  • What charges were they arrested for?
  • The jail or facility they are being held in
  • Their booking number
  • What amount has the bail been set at?

What Are the Most Common Types of Bonds?

When it comes to bail bonds, there may be several options available for friends and family members, and the type of bond you may need will depend on a few factors.  Things such as the offense for which the defendant is being charged, what the total amount for bail is and your current financial situation can all have an affect on the kind of bond you may need. The following types of bail bonds are the most common forms of posting bail.

Surety Bond

By far the most common State bond, a surety bond, is governed by Florida regulations and stipulates that the bondsman will be paid 10%. The bondsman then provides the remainder of the bond to the court. This is the law. There is NEVER an instance where a bondsman can offer you a deal or charge more than the stipulated 10%.

The only exception to this 10% rule is when bail is set under $1,000. Regardless of the amount below $1,000 the cost is $100 and not 10%. Since the law is specific the only difference that separates the multitude of bail bonds companies is the service you will be provided.


Federal Bail Bonds

A Federal bail bond comes in to play when the alleged crime is of a federal nature or involves interstate criminal activity. Examples of this would be crimes that cross state lines, or any crime investigated by a federal agency like the FBI, or involves the Post Office, IRS or Immigration Services. Examples of this would be tax evasion, drug trafficking, fraud, and kidnapping as well as any crime that takes place on federal property.

Federal bonds are most often many times higher than a state bond. The premium rate in Florida for a Federal Bail Bond is 15%. Often, a judge will add a “Nebbia” requirement. This means that whomever is paying the bond provides proof that any collateral or money used is from a legitimate source. The professionals at Bazarte Bail Bonds are experienced in dealing with Federal Bail Bonds and can be instrumental in helping the arrestee deal with these intricacies. We can also provide assistance for Signature and Immigration bonds.


When a person believes there may be an outstanding warrant for their arrest, it is possible for the offender’s bail be paid without going through the process of being detained in jail. The reason for this is simple. Jails are overcrowded. If someone believes a warrant exists against them, the best course of action is to contact Bazarte Bail Bonds. We can verify the record, and explain the process, and accompany you to a facility that accepts self-arrests. We will explain what identification is required, and the proper dress code.




Friendly Bondsmen, very helpful and professional. I would never use another Bondsman, these guys are the best!
