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

santa ana bail bonds

  • 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.

Bail Is No Different For Celebrities

cypress bail bonds

Everyone thinks that celebrities get special treatment and many times, it’s true. But in serious times, it’s not – celebrities get treated in just the same manner as every other person. And by serious times, we mean when they end up arrested. Yes, even celebrities get arrested for breaking the law and just like anyone else, they appear in an arraignment hearing and even stand trial.

Singer Chris Brown was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna. His bail was set at $50,000, which he posted. Brown was given 5 years of probation, which he violated, resulting in probation being revoked. He was then ordered to remain in jail for a month because of his probation violation.

Olympian Oscar Pistorious was arrested for killing his girlfriend and his bail was set at $1 million.

NFL player Aaron Hernandez was arrested for murder in 2012; he was denied bail.

Celebrities do not get faster bail treatment, nor do they get cheaper bail than they deserve. Celebrities are served bail just as the judge would serve bail to any other arrestee, and they can choose to pay bail directly or hire a bail agent for a bail bond – which many celebrities do too.

If you need a bail bond for a loved one, you can get that at Cypress Bail Bond Store. Get in touch with an Cypress Bail Bond Store agent online or call 714-648-0586.

Sort Your Bail Bond Payments With Tax Refunds

cypress bail bonds

If you overpaid taxes last year, you have the option of applying the excess amount to this year’s taxes, or have it refunded to you. In deciding which option would be more beneficial to you, consider your current financial situation. Do you plan to make a large purchase sometime soon? Have you been spending more lately than saving? Do you have necessary payments to make? Are you comfortable with the amount of easily accessible and disposable money you have?

Answering these questions can help you determine what you want to do with your overpaid taxes. Having the money refunded to you will certainly help alleviate some of your financial stress, including the burden of having to make payments for a car, a concert ticket, or even a bail bond.

Your Cypress Bail Bond Store agent can help sort out your bail bond payments in an effort to make the process as simplified as possible. They are available 24/7 and always willing to answer your online chat or take your call at 714-648-0586.

Keep Up With Bail Bond Payments With Tax Returns

la habra bail bonds

When you start doing your taxes, you will be asked that in the case you paid excess taxes in the previous year, would you like the balance to be refunded to you or applied to this coming year’s taxes. The pros to either might be obvious:

  • If you choose to be refunded, you will get a check in the mail or to your bank account, and soon you will be in possession of a little extra money for your use.
  • If you choose to have it applied to your next taxes, then you will not have to pay as much in the end.
  • For some people, it may not matter which option they go with, even though they ultimately get to decide. But for others, they might feel inclined to have it refunded to them because they are low on money right now and really can use extra money as soon as possible to pay some necessary dues – such as bail bond payments.

    Remember, it is imperative to not miss a bail bond payment because it will put the bond (and ultimately the defendant’s freedom) in jeopardy. Talk to your La Habra Bail Bond Store agent any time to get updates on payments and other news (but do keep track of them yourself too). Your La Habra Bail Bond Store agent is there to help you through the whole process so you’re not left in the dark.
