Bonds We Offer
Any Bail, Any Time

If bail is permitted for the offense you stand accused of committing, our bondsmen can post bond on your behalf and arrange your release from jail.
Felonies and Misdemeanors
Crimes are separated into two primary categories in Arizona: misdemeanors and felonies. The principal difference between the two classifications of crime has to do with the severity of the crime and its prescribed punishment. Misdemeanors are considered to be less serious crimes that can be punished by no more than six months in a county or local jail. In contrast, felonies are more severe and carry harsher punishments including sentences of greater than one year in a state prison. While both misdemeanors and felonies are eligible to be expunged or removed from your record, there are certain crimes that may not be expunged. Such crimes are usually particularly violent or heinous.
How Much Is Bail?
Depending on whether your crime is a felony or misdemeanor, along with the particular circumstances of your arrest play a significant role in determining how much money you will be required to pay to the court to make bail. In Arizona, judges are given discretion over setting bail amounts. Several of the factors that judges consider when setting the bail for a defendant include:
- the defendant’s criminal history
- the nature of the crime
- who the victim of the crime was
- the monetary value of damage resulting from the crime
- if there was a deadly weapon used during the crime
- the likelihood the defendant returns to court to stand trial
While we can bail you of jail whenever you need it for any crime that is eligible for bail, it would be impossible to list every kind of bail we can write. We have included this short list of bail bonds that we frequently provide for our clients.
- Assault & Battery
- Drug Possession
- Probation Violation
- Immigration Bonds
- Child Support
- And Many More
Outstanding Warrants Specialists
Clear Your Warrants
At Ameri-Bail Bail Bonds in Phoenix, we specialize in outstanding warrants. If you have a warrant pending for your arrest, you need to take action immediately to ensure that you resolve any ongoing issues with the court. If you have an outstanding warrant law enforcement officers can arrest you and detain you until you appear before a judge and your legal matters have concluded. If you don’t take action to address your warrants, you will have to live in constant fear of being arrested and being taken to jail.
Know Your Options
Depending on the crime you are charged with, you may be able to post bond on your warrant and avoid any jail time, This is not an option for everyone. You should consult a licensed bail agent from Ameri-Bail Bail Bonds if you know that you have a warrant out for your arrest but are unsure if you can post bond on it. This is the most convenient solution. Once you call us, we can post your bond for a 10% fee and the court will rescind your warrant when they receive the payment.
Another option for someone with an outstanding warrant that wants to avoid jail time is to “post and forfeit.” This process requires you to post the entire of the bail amount in cash. Essentially, after you make your payment to the court your case is dismissed, and your warrant is quashed. Post and forfeit bonds are only available for nonviolent, low-level offenses.
