Bailing someone out of jail, is not necessarily difficult to do, especially if you have the finances to meet the bail amount. Unfortunately, a lot of people are not in the position to be able to do this, and will need some assistance. Seeking the help of a professional bail bonds company like ours, is highly advised.
As California has the highest set bail amounts of anywhere in the nation, most people are simply not able to raise the total amount of bail without getting some help. There is also the bail bond fee to consider as well. The fee that must be paid to a bail bond company, is 10% of the total amount of bail. For example, if the bail has been set at $20,000, then the bail bond fee will be $2,000.
Santa Ana Bail Bonds is also aware that many people can’t afford the bail bond fee either, so we are willing to work in with qualifying clients by offering a payment plan, to pay off the fee. It is also important to remember that the bail bond fee is not refundable. This fee is for the services provided by the bail bonds company.
In some cases, a no money down can be organized however, as the 10% fee still needs to be paid by law, you may be required to provide collateral that equals, if not exceeds the total amount of bail. The sooner you can organize to pay the bail bond fee to our bail bonds company, the sooner the sooner we can get the defendant released.
