Will Paying a Bail Bond Affect My Credit Score?

If you or a loved one is ever arrested, whether or not anyone is guilty, the first step is to of course post bail. However one concern that many often have is, will posting bail affect my credit score?

The short answer is no. However there are certain instances where we may have to check your credit. If we do in fact need to check your credit, we will always ask permission first. But as long as you make your bail payments on-time, or if you’ve decided to pay with a credit card, as long as you continue to pay your credit card payments on-time, posting bail will not adversely affect your credit score.

We here at Bulldog Bail Bonds accept various forms of payment including: cash, check, credit, and debit. As most people do not like carrying around large amounts of cash, they will usually pay for the bail bond via a check or credit card.

So if you are worried about bail negatively impacting your credit score, rest assured that as long as you make your payments on-time, your credit will not be adversely affected.



If you have any other questions regarding the bail and/or payment process, we here at Bulldog Bail Bonds are available 24/7 online or on the phone at 866-574-7760.
