That is why our bail agents are more than happy to answer their clients’ questions. In an attempt to help you out, we thought we would answer some of the more common bail questions here.
Pricing is dependent on the amount of the bail. In California, bail bond companies charge 10% of the bail price, which means if your loved one’s bail is $10,000, it will cost $1,000.
Yes, we can offer a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond if a co-signer is a union member, a member of the military, a member of AARP, is a homeowner, or if the client has a private attorney. With this discount, instead of paying $1,000 for the same bond as before, you only have to pay $800.
A co-signer is anyone who is willing to sign for your loved one’s release. The signer is promising that all the money will be paid, and that their loved one will go to all of his or her court dates. A co-signer takes responsibility for their loved one.
After the initial payment has been received, your loved one can be out in as little as 2 hours. However, the time varies from county to county and is dependent on the current workload of the jail where your loved one is being held.
No, we are only licensed to bail people out of jail in California. If you want to bail someone out of jail in a state other than California, you will most likely need to contact a bail agent in that state.
