Consent bonds are used when an individual has been charged, but not served with the warrant. Rather than face a magistrate judge who can set high bonds, an attorney can get a pre-set bond, called a “consent bond.”
Skilled trial attorneys, especially the top Greensboro felony lawyers, use this tool to keep their clients out of Greensboro’s jail.
When granted a consent bond, however, be aware that even though the clerk’s office must send an original to the jail, the jail will not hold a copy if the client is not already in custody. Original copies must be kept for both the clerk and the client if they are going to turn themselves in at a later date.
Although difficult to obtain, consent bonds can save stress, heartache, and days in jail. As such, we recommend them over bond motions and bail bondsman. If you need a consent bond, contact the top trial attorneys at Garrett, Walker, Aycoth and Olson today!
