Navigating The California Bail Bond Experience


The bail bond process in California can be extremely overwhelming when you first approach it. It’s difficult to know what bail bond company you should choose, how much you should pay, if you can use collateral and what rules you’ll have to follow once you are bailed out.

We’ve tried to make things easier for you.

The first thing to think about when looking at California bail bond companies is that on the surface we all seem alike. That’s because 10% is the standard fee connected to a California bail bond. When you scratch the surface, you’ll notice that there’s a big difference between some of the local bail bonds companies. Some insist on the full 10% upfront plus they make you use collateral. These companies are often difficult to get along with, don’t communicate well and simply make the process more complicated than it has to be.

Other bail bonds companies have a more sympathetic approach. They understand that even 10% of the requested bail is a lot of money and create payment plans that make life a little easier. They also explain who does and doesn’t need collateral and what you can use if the collateral is needed and the amount of risk you’re assuming.

The biggest thing that sets some bail bonds companies apart from other is customer service. You only want to deal with a bail bonds company that has a solid reputation for providing golden customer service. They should listen to your concerns, answer all of your questions and make sure that you’re truly comfortable taking out a bail bond. They should remain good about communicating once the bail bond has been signed and your loved one has been released from jail.

A good bails bond company will take an active interest in your situation and help you through the entire bail bond process. They’ll explain what paperwork you need to have before they can start processing the bail bond request, they’ll make sure you and you’re loved one know what they can and can’t do while they’re out on bail and they’ll always be ready and willing to answer your questions every step of the way.

Most importantly, a good bail bonds company will make you feel comfortable with arranging a bail bond for your loved one.
