In the current economy, not a lot of people have spare cash lying around, or sitting in their bank. Most of us are quite literally having to watch every single penny, just to make sure our bills are paid, and there is food on the table. In the event that you receive a call from a loved one stating they are being held in custody, most people will immediately panic about not having the money to bail them out. This is when a company such as ours can be more than beneficial.
It is an unfortunate fact that California has the highest bail bond amounts in the country. The usual minimum bail amount is set at around $20,000. The majority of people simply do not have this kind of money available to be accessed at such short notice, if at all. A licensed bail bond company, operating legally, by law has to charge 10% of the total amount of bail for their fee. This is regulated by the California Department of Insurance.

Some people have asked the question, “How Much Is A Bail Bonds Fee?” The Department of Insurance California regulates bail bond fees at 10%. There are occasions where the fee can be lowered to 8%, however, there are certain conditions attached.
Qualifying for an 8% Bail Bond Fee:
Must be a Union Member – The defendant and/or co-signer must be currently enrolled in a union.
Member of the Military – Must be an active, or honorably discharged member of the U.S. Military
Private Defense Counsel – Defendant must be able to supply a letter from an attorney, or a copy of a contract between the defendant and attorney.
It will be necessary to provide proof of any of the above in order to qualify for the 8% bail bond fee.
Another important fact to remember is, the bail bond fee is non-refundable. This fee is for services rendered, and in the employing of a bail bonds company to have the defendant released from custody. Regardless of the outcome of the case, the fee is not refunded.
