Orange Bail Bond Costs
A bail bond is a bond fee, or percentage of the actual bail cost. This percentage is actually set by the California Department of Insurance. The law says that an agency must charge 10% of the bail. For example, if your bail is set at $15,000 you must pay a fee of $1,500 to get released.
When you pay this fee, it goes towards the services rendered by the bail bonds company. It is non-refundable.
If you come across a bail bondman that offers bail bonds for 5%, it may sound like you’re getting a good deal. However, this practice is illegal in California. This would mean the company is operating outside of the law which means they cannot really help you get out of jail.
Be very careful when choosing what bail bonds agency to enter into a contract with. Look at customer reviews and the Better Business Bureau first to make sure you are dealing with a reputable, legitimate company.
