Frequently Asked Questions

Are bail bond fees refundable?
No, once the bondsmen post bail, the bail fees are considered earned.
Can bond be posted after sentencing?
No, once the defendant has been sentenced, bail cannot be posted because the defendant agreed to the terms and conditions of a plea deal or were found guilty and sentenced.
Can you post bond out of state?
The short answer is yes, every state has its own set of bail laws. If your loved one was arrested in another state, contact us. If we cannot under write the bond, we will refer you to a trusted agency that can help.
Do I need a cosigner?
Qualified applicants do not need cosigners, securing a self-bail or signature bond typically has some of the strictest conditions but can be done. In most situations, we typically ask for 1 cosigner with verifiable source of income to streamline the process.
How does bail work?
A bail bond is essentially an insurance contract made between the court and the insurance company guaranteeing either the defendants return to court or the full-face value of the bond issued. If the defendant successfully appears to all necessary court appearances, the bond is exonerated. If the defendant fails to appear in court, they risk a forfeiture of the bail bond and a warrant being issued for the defendant’s arrest. In addition, he or she may loose the right to future bail and or face higher bail when apprehended because of increased flight risk factor.
How long till the defendant is released?
Generally, the release process is quick and usually done within 1-2 hours. Some jail facilities or county jails maybe affected by longer release times because of delays related to COVID, influx of detainees coming in or out of the facilities or medial holds.
How much does bail costs?
The industry standard in California is 10% of the face value of bond issued. Example, defendant is arrested, and the agency or court issues a $50,000.00 bail. 10% of $50,000.00 is $5,000.00. Keep in mind that you may be eligible for discounts or rebates. For more information give us a call.
What are the types of bail?
There are 3 ways bail can be posted. Surety bond aka bail bond, Cash bond, and property bond.
What if I have warrants?
Call us, we can facilitate a surrender with the police or sheriff’s department or schedule a date with the court to address the warrant. If no bail is necessary and released on OR, we will shake hands and be done, we wont charge unless we have to post bail.
What is a 1275 hold?
1275 hold is when the arresting agency or DA’s office wants to see the defendants’ financial records. To put it simply, the agency issuing the hold wants to validate the source of funds being used in conjunction with the defendant’s bond and is not money sourced from the alleged offense. We have helped hundreds of clients and attorneys help lift 1275 holds. For more information on how to prepare or getting information on 1275 holds, call us.
What is a forfeiture?
A forfeiture is when the person out on bond fails to appear in court. A forfeiture notice is issued to the surety and the bail bond agency. We understand things happen, there was an emergency or maybe the defendant forgot about the court date. When this happens, it is paramount you call your bail bond agent or contact the agency immediately to have the bond reinstated. Otherwise, the defendant may loose his or her right to bail in future and risk having the courts issue a no bail hold or set bail at a higher amount.
What is an exoneration?
An exoneration means that there is no more liability or responsibility for the defendant’s bond. Any collateral or securities given to the bail bond will be returned to the signer except bail bond premiums.
When is the bail bond done?
The bond is technically over once the court has exonerated the bail bond and all fees and premiums have been paid. An exoneration is executed by the judge presiding over your case once the case has settled.
