Emergency Jail Bonds: Are You Ready To Pay?
You absolutely can get 24/7 jail bail bonds, but are you financially ready to secure them? It is important to understand that if you ever need to get a bail bond any time day or night, weekday or weekend, you will need to have the funds at the ready to secure the bond. Here are three ways you can have that money ready or at least have access to something that can supply you with the funds you need, regardless of the day of the week or the time of the day.

Short of a medical emergency, your emergency savings account can be used for this exact sort of incident, and you will need it.
Be Willing to Give up an Extra Possession
Do not give up your home or your main car, if you can help it. However, if you have an extra vehicle, keep the title and registration somewhere where you can access it quickly. The title and registration of a spare car can make all the difference between securing the bail bond you need, and not securing it at all.
Keep Valuable Jewelry Locked in a Safe for Emergencies

In an emergency, the Queen may choose to use the jewels to secure money to rectify a major life and death situation. That is exactly how you should view any valuable jewelry you own. Lock it up, do not lose sight of it, and then use it when you
