If a friend or family member is in jail and needs to post bail, getting them out as soon as possible is often your first priority. However, sometimes the judge will prevent a quick release, because he or she wants to know about the source of the bail bond money. In this case, the court requires a Bail Source Inquiry Questionnaire (BSIQ) or a Bail Source Hearing to make sure the money came from a legal place. Here is what you need to know about the BSIQ:
- How a BSIQ Works
If the crime in question is very serious or the defendant may be associated with illegal money transfers, the court may require paperwork to show the source of the bail money prior to posting the bond. While this delays the release of the defendant, it shows the court that the money backing the defendant’s release comes from a clean source. Money coming from bail bond companies is generally seen as completely reliable.
