While the U. S. Constitution prohibits judges from imposing “excessive bail,” the bail amounts listed for different crimes are typically much more than most people have in their bank account. In California, the cost of bail bonds is negotiable.To help pay with specified costs, the law allows a person charged with a crime to contact a person 18 years or older.
The cost of your bail bond, also known as a surety bond, depends on your individual circumstances, such as the nature of your charge and level of flight risk.
Flight risk refers to the likelihood you will not appear in court on your trial date, as well as the chances you will leave the country, or move outside the jurisdiction of the cost. If the court deems you are a high flight risk, the amount of bail you must post, if it is granted at all, will be much higher than a person who is deemed a low flight risk.
As part of the bail bonding process, you will enter into a contract outlining the terms under which we will post bail so you or your loved one can be released from jail.
In exchange for our services, we charge a premium, which is typically 10 percent of the bail amount, plus any other fees associated with the transaction. However, there are no taxes for a bond. So let’s do some simple math. If bail is set at $20,000, the fee charged is $2,000. Again, there are no taxes for a bond.
Being released on bail is a benefit, allowing the defendant time to obtain qualified legal services and prepare for their case. In circumstances where they are not bailed out or otherwise released, the person will usually remain in custody until the arraignment.
