Finding a 24/7 Bail Bondsman Near Me in Atlanta, Georgia and Fulton County.
After an arrest has been made within the city limits of Atlanta, Georgia the defendant will most likely be taken to the City Detention Center, located at 254 Peachtree St SW or will be transferred to the Fulton detention facility. The defendant will then go through the booking process. The inmate must be fully booked into the system before he or she can be eligible for a bond and be allowed to post bail.
The Jail’s Booking Process Includes:
- Identity verification
- Photograph or mug shot
- Property inventory
- Formal charges
- Bail eligibility determination
The defendant won’t be able to get bondsmen to post bail until they have been completely booked into the system. This can take a few hours. Furthermore, they might have to be transferred to a county detention center. This often happens in criminal cases that aren’t simple traffic violations or unpaid tickets. The City Detention Center handles bench warrants and traffic violations while county jails handle more severe charges. If you aren’t sure what the inmate’s bail amount is, call the City of Atlanta at (404) 865-8001. You can also check on the booking status of the individual by calling the facility directly. Only after an inmate has been booked will they be eligible to be bonded out. You can pay the full amount of bail directly to the jail or hire bonding companies for their services.

You Can’t Post Bail with a Fulton County Bonding Company for the City of Atlanta, GA. Here’s Why…
Oftentimes, a Fulton County bail bonds agency will get phone calls from people who have friends, relatives, spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc. being held in county jails throughout the major metropolitan area. It is extremely important that you find out where the person is being held before you call any bonding company. In most cases, a bondsman won’t be able to bond someone out of a county jail if they are only licensed for the City Pretrial Detention Center. With most companies, a bond can only be written for a particular county.
Not only do our experts write bail bonds for the city jail in downtown Atlanta, but we also cover almost any area around Fulton County. Just remember that there is a difference between writing a bond for a county jail and writing a bond for the city jail. Just any old bondsman won’t necessarily be able to service the entire area. We can. How? Because we are experts at the bond process. We have the most trusted staff in the metro area and we have years of experience in criminal matters like these.
We can help you navigate through signature bonds, cash bonds, pretrial services programs, property bonds, citation release, and bonds for misdemeanors/felonies/DUI’s.
How Fulton County Bail Bonds and Bonding Companies Work
When you get that dreaded phone call from your friend or loved one saying that they have been arrested, you might not know what to do next. That’s perfectly fine and bail agents don’t expect you to know how the process works. The process was established by Peter P. McDonough several years ago and is taken for granted these days.Several acts of congress like the Excessive Bail Clause in the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution have helped with prison overcrowding to thwart mass incarceration by making these services more affordable to the public. Not to worry, we’ll calmly walk you through the process of getting a bond for an inmate and educate you on anything you don’t know. Here’s how a bail bond works in any county in the metro area:
First, find out what county detention center (or city jail) the defendant is in. You’ll need to inform the bonding company of this information so that they can swiftly assist you. If possible, you’ll also be wise to note how much the bond is. You can get this information by simply calling the jail itself.
Second, determine if you qualify for a surety bond or not. If you don’t, you or the inmate might know someone who does and you should reach out to them and ask if they would be willing to cosign on the bail bond.
Next, call our offices. We’ll connect you directly to one of our bondsmen and they will walk you through the information, fees, and the fee for the bond. With any company in the metro area, depending on the cosigner’s qualifications, you can expect to pay in between 10% – 15% plus pass-through fees.
After that, all that’s left to do is make sure the defendant stays in the state of Georgia and goes in front of the judge on their court date. If they should fail to appear before the judge on their court date, you could be held liable for the full amount of bail and any and all surety bonds will be null and void. A bounty hunter (fugitive recovery agent or bounty hunting professional) might be employed to find the accused and bring them back into custody.

Atlanta’s Crime Data:
With Atlanta’s population being 472,522 (as of the 2016 census) encompassing just 134.0 square miles, you can expect crime rates to be fairly high since we’re all living so close together. In fact a bond is written almost once and hour on an inmate’s behalf in the metro area. The traffic is horrible and the crime rate isn’t much better. The city is the seat of Fulton County’s government and crime rates in both the city and the county are similar. The ATL ranked 14th in the U.S. with a violent crime rate of 1,120 violent crimes per 100,000 residents. According to Forbes, it is the 6th most dangerous place to live in the United States. Your chances of being a victim of a violent crime in the city is 1 in 85. Crime seems to be centered in poor neighborhoods south of Downtown.
With the new piece of legislation that Atlanta’s mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms, has signed, more people are being released on their own recognizance (signature bond). When this happens, you don’t need to hire a bail bondsman, the accused just has to promise to be at their next court date.
