How Do Bail Bonds Work?

When a loved one faces arrest and charges a bail amount is typically set to secure their release until their court hearing. Bail amounts in California vary, ranging from simpler cases like DUIs at around $10,000 to more complex situations, such as DUI accidents ranging from $10,000 to $100,000. Initially, the individual is taken and processed at a jail facility. The booking process can be lengthy, depending on facility regulations and other factors. Following arrest and booking, the defendant is often transferred to a local police station’s detention center. Here, the booking process begins to identify the individual, document the incident, and verify their identity and any prior records to determine bail eligibility.
If you or someone you know is arrested, expect to undergo the following procedures:
  • Personal Information: Jailers will gather personal details including name, contact information, address, and next of kin.
  • Photo: A “mug shot” will be taken for record-keeping purposes.
  • Collection of Personal Property: Personal items will be confiscated and stored securely.
  • Fingerprinting: Fingerprints are taken and checked against federal databases for any outstanding charges.
  • Body Search: A thorough body search may be conducted by an officer or jail employee to ensure no concealed items.
Once these steps are completed, the individual will be booked into a jail cell, awaiting bail or release. During this time, they’re permitted a phone call to inform family or friends of their situation and initiate the bail process. This is an optimal moment to contact a bail bond agent to discuss services. If bail or release isn’t feasible, the individual will remain in custody until their court hearing.
What Happens When Someone Gets Arrested?
Individuals arrested are processed into the local city jail or into the main county jail. They undergo a booking process, including fingerprinting and mug shots, to verify identity and check for warrants.
How Much Does It Cost For Bail?
The bail amount is determined only after the booking process is complete and there is clarity on the nature of the charges. There are several options available to secure their release:
  • Pay the entire bail amount directly to the court using certified funds. Upon resolution of the case, the full amount will be refunded. This process can take up to a couple days to complete and then up to 90 days to get your funds back after the case is resolved.
  • Utilize the services of a professional bail bondsman, who typically charges a service fee between 7%- 10% of the total bail bond amount. Example; $10,000 bail = $700-$1,000 fee.
If opting for the second option, it’s important to note that the service fee is a one-time, non-refundable payment used to post the bail bond. Additionally, a co-signer, known as the “Indemnitor,” will be required to guarantee the defendant’s appearance at all scheduled court hearings. Failure to appear will result in financial responsibility for the indemnitor / co-signer.
How Long Does It Take To Get Bailed From Jail?

Bail bonds are processed around the clock, with release times varying based on jail facilities. Some of the smaller police departments and jails may take 30 minutes to release a person after bail is posted and the main county jails can take 2-12 hours to release.

How Long Does A Bail Bond Good For?

Bail bonds remain in place until the case is resolved. Whether the individual is innocent or guilty the bond will keep them out of jail throughout the duration of their case.

How To Find A Licensed Bail Company?

All Bail Agents in California are licensed by The California Department of Insurance. Be sure to check if licensees have complaints against them and that their license is in good standing. Also check Yelp to see your bondsman’s reviews or complaints. Here’s ours Yelp.

What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Bail Bondsman?

If you don’t have experience with bail navigating the process can feel overwhelmingly complex and time-consuming. However, engaging a bail bondsman can streamline the process and expedite the release of your loved ones from jail. There are two primary benefits to hiring a professional bail bond agent:
  • Legal Benefits:
    • Expertise: Professional bail bond agents possess comprehensive knowledge of the legal procedures involved in the bail process. Their expertise can save you considerable time and effort.
    • Compliance: Bail bond agents understand the legal requirements for securing the release of an individual from jail. They ensure adherence to all necessary protocols, facilitating a smoother process overall.
  • Financial Benefits:
    • Cost-Effectiveness: By engaging a professional bail bond agent, you can avoid the need to pay the full bail amount upfront. Instead, you’ll only be responsible for a fraction of the total bail bond amount. 
    • Asset Protection: Utilizing a bail bond agent helps safeguard your assets by minimizing the immediate financial burden associated with bail. This allows you to preserve your resources for other essential expenses.
In summary, enlisting the services of a professional bail bond agent offers both legal expertise and financial advantages, ultimately streamlining the bail process and ensuring a faster release from jail for your loved ones.
