How can I Pay for a Bail Bond?

Van Nuys Bail Bond Store

Van Nuys Bail Bond Store provides affordable bail bonds for defendants who are held in California jails. Bail bonds are an alternative method to posting bail and costs only 10% of the full bail amount. On top of that, this 10%, called the premium, is paid in increments over a payment plan, custom created to meet your financial needs.

Here are the different ways you can pay for the bail bond:

  • Cash and checks – Bring it in or mail it.
  • Debit and credit – Swing by an office to make a transaction, or go online and use our convenient and secure online payment portal.
  • Tax return – Technically this would just fall under any of the above because once your tax return clears and is in your bank account, you would then proceed to pay for the bail bond in one of the above ways. Your tax return becomes extra money to you, which means it can be used to pay for your bail bond.

Bail bonds are the more convenient, affordable, and flexible way to posting bail and Van Nuys Bail Bond Store will prove it.

How to Get Out of Jail

Van Nuys Bail Bond Store

In the justice system, “arraignment” is when a defendant, stands before a judge for the first time. This is not part of the trial. Arraignment occurs after the arrest and booking process, but before the trial. This is when the defendant is formally charged for a crime and the judge decides the defendant’s immediate fate. The judge will decide whether the defendant will be allowed bail, and if so, how much, or if he or she is to remain in custody during the trial.

Being released from jail poses a few options that are up to the judge:

    Bail

  • Bail is the amount of money owed in order to be released from jail for the duration of trial. Bail can be posted by cash, or with a bail bond from a professional company like Van Nuys Bail Bond Store. Cash bail must be paid 100% before the defendant is released, but it can potentially be refunded at the end of trial. A bail bond costs 10% of the full bail amount and can be paid off with a payment plan after the defendant is released from jail.

    Own Recognizance:

  • No payment is required in this instance. A defendant merely signs a paper promising to show up for court, and then is free to leave. Defendants released on own recognizance are generally those with clean records and are not being accused of a very serious crime. They are not dangerous, and they have plenty of ties to the community so they are not likely to flee.
