How Much Does Bail Cost & How Do I Post Bail?

  • What’s better; a bail agent or a bail bondsman?
    These two titles may sound different but they really mean the same thing. A bail agent is a bail bondsman and vice versa.
  • How much does a bail bond cost?
    Pricing is dependent on the amount of the bail. In California, bail bonds companies charge 10% of the bail price. If your loved one’s bail is $10,000, then it will cost $1,000 to bail him out using a bail bonds company.
  • Do you offer discounts?
    Yes. At Los Angeles Bail Bond Store we can offer a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond if a co-signer is a member of the military, AARP, is a homeowner, or if the client has a private attorney. With this discount, instead of paying $1,000 for the same bond, you only have to pay $800.
  • What is a co-signer?
    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 their court dates. A co-signer takes responsibility for their loved one.
  • How do I make payments?
    We accept a number of different payment methods at Los Angeles Bail Bond Store. We accept cash, checks and most major credit cards. We also have the ability to accept payments online, over the phone, or in person at an office.
  • How much do I have to pay?
    Again, cost depends on the price of the bail itself. Initially you need to pay 10% of the bail. Depending on your information, we may be able to offer discounts.
  • With interest, how much do I have to pay?
    At Los Angeles Bail Bond Store we do not charge interest, you only have to pay the 10%.
  • How much do I have to put up front?
    Again, pricing varies from case to case and depends vastly on the people who are co-signing the bail bond.
  • How long does it take for my loved one to be released?
    After the initial payment has been received, your loved one can be out in as little as two hours. However, the time varies from county to county. Time can vary anywhere from 2 hours to several, depending on the current workload of the jail.
  • Can you see if I have a warrant?
    Yes, we can. If you think there might be a warrant out for your arrest, just call Los Angeles Bail Bond Store and we will see if you do indeed have a warrant.
  • Who can bail out my friend?
    Anyone who cares about your friend can bail him or her out of jail. You do not have to be related to someone to bail him or her out of jail.
  • Can you bail my friend in Nevada out of jail?
    No. At Los Angeles Bail Bond Store 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 need to contact a bail agent in that state.
  • Do you do immigration bonds?
    No. There are companies that specialize in those kinds of bonds.
  • What happens if I do not bail out my friend or family member?
    Your loved one stays in jail until he is either found innocent and released or found guilty and sentenced. Until then your loved one has to go to all court appearances in an orange jumpsuit which does not look good to the court.
  • If I cannot bail somebody out immediately, up to how many days do I have to be able to bail them out of jail?
    There is no time limit to bailing a friend or family member out of jail. Your loved one can be bailed out of jail until he or she has been sentenced.
  • Do I need to give collateral?
    Most bonds at Los Angeles Bail Bond Store do not need collateral. We use your signature as collateral in most cases. However, for larger bails, starting around $100,000, you may need to put down something as collateral. This varies from case to case and depends greatly on the co-signers.
  • What happens if I miss a payment?
    If you happen to miss a payment, it is not a huge deal. If you know in advance that you are going to be late on a payment, let us know. We know that life can be difficult at times and that things that were certain a few months ago, might have changed. If your budget has changed, we can work with you on payment and even readjust your payment plan to fit your budget better.
  • Can you tell me what my friend or family member was arrested for?
    Yes, we can. Just give us your friend or family member’s name, birthday, and the county where he or she was arrested. We use that information to find your loved one in the county system and to answer any of your questions.
    Do I have to wait to finish making my final payment before I can be bailed out again?
    No. We can even adjust the payments on your first bail bond to make it easier on you to pay for both of them.
  • If I get approved, how much time do I have to make the first payment?
    It depends on your individual situation. We customize our payment plans to work with your budget and situation. We can even get you a 0 down bail bonds payment plan based on your situation.
  • Will I receive a statement every month?
    Yes.
  • What is collateral?
    Collateral is something of equal value to the bail bond that the co-signer puts up to cover the bond. If the client fails to pay for the bail bond, then the company takes whatever was put up as collateral.
  • Can I use a payment plan to pay for the bail bond?
    Yes. We create payment plans for all of our clients to help make paying for the bail bond easier. We will work with you to create a customized payment plan that fits into your personal budget. The payments will break up the large cost of the bail bond into smaller, more manageable monthly payments.

You Need To “Interview” A Bail Bond Company First

chino-bail-bonds-479

When your freedom, or that of someone you love, is literally on the line, you of course are going to want to seek out the best help you could possibly receive. You need to get out of jail and you need someone who you can trust and rely on to help you achieve this. You want the best care so things can run as smoothly and as quickly as possible.

When searching for a bail bond agent, make sure to get your free consultation with a bail bonds company before making any commitments. This consultation will be an interview of sorts, where you decide if this certain bail agent and the company they’re representing are worth hiring to help you.

    These are some questions you’ll want to have answered:

  • What do you charge? All things considered, this is one of the most important questions. Obviously you have a budget and you want to be in that. Most bail bond companies will charge between 10-15%. If there is a greater fee, we recommend continuing your search.
  • Can I get that in writing? Some people will try and trick eager clients, taking advantage of the fact that their client very likely has little to no knowledge of the bail industry. They will try and get more money from you than they lead you to believe. Make sure to get written copies of their services and fees, as well as anything you end up signing.
  • May I see your license? The last thing you want is to work with someone who is working under a false or expired license. If the truth is revealed, your bail bond and thus your freedom is in jeopardy.

How Much Time Do I Have To Post Bail?

riverside-county-bail-bonds-477

You may post bail at any time; after your bail hearing – as long as the judge has granted bail, of course. The time it will take to pay off a bail bond will depend on the route you choose to bail out of jail.

  1. If you wish to pay your bail money directly with court so you have the option of being refunded all that money at the end of your trial, you will need to pay the entire bail before your release.
  2. If you wish to pay a professional bail bond company to bail you out of jail with a bail bond, you will be paying less, but you will not be refunded anything. You would pay only 10-15% of the bail amount to the bail bond company over a period of weeks or months. In addition, you would be released from jail as soon as the legal agreement forms are signed and processed, meaning you’d be making your payments after your release.

There are definitely pros and cons in both ways to bail. One is not necessarily “better” than the other, in the eyes of the justice system. One would only be considered “better” in regards to your financial situation.

Yes, the whole process can get a little confusing and stressful at times, but don’t go into rectifying this situation with that type of mind-set. A representative will go over everything you need to know, answer all of the questions you may have, and help you decide if a bail bond is a better fit for you overall. Just know that we’ve helped people in all sorts of situations and with different levels of income so we certainly wouldn’t turn you away for any reason!

You can get a free consultation from Riverside County Bail Bond Store by contacting us right now!

Even More Hoverboard Laws

riverside-county-bail-bonds-476

Hoverboard laws are continuing to get stricter. In January, a number of Hoverboard laws in California began, For example:

  • Hoverboard riders have to be at least 16 years of age and must be wearing a helmet at all times.
  • Hoverboard riders can only ride on sidewalks or streets where the posted speed limit is no more than 35 miles per hour.

Keep in mind that these are state-wide laws.

Individual cities can get into more laws that would apply only to them, and this is exactly what Long Beach is doing. The City Council recently voted to ban hoverboards from sidewalks, meaning they may now only be used on certain streets and obey the same rules as cyclists. This is to keep sidewalks in Long Beach pedestrian friendly.

Anyone violating any Hoverboard laws can be slapped with a fine and anyone caught under the influence and riding a hoverboard may even be cited with a DUI.

Hoverboard riders must watch out for their safety now, especially if they are riding on the streets. All other drivers, cyclists, and skaters must also be aware that they are not the only one’s using these paths anymore. Just as a cyclist can be hit by a car, so can a hoverboard rider and that is not going to be, nor should it ever be, acceptable by any terms of society. The overall consequences in breaking these new laws will most likely end up being a JAIL sentence. Getting out of jail, however, will be easy with a bail bond from Riverside County Bail Bond Store.
