We can speak with the authorities and find out what the charges are for you. We provide this service at no charge to anyone who calls.

3. Understand How Much Bail Bonds Cost

The most common question we’re asked is how much the bail bond costs. You can pay the full penal amount (often a very large number) to the court yourself, but most people don’t do that, so they call a bail bondsman in orange county. We put up the full amount for you, and charge a one time fee, typically 10% for this service.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are general answers to frequently asked questions. Please call us if you would like more detailed answers that are specific to your particular situation.

How much does it cost to get a bail bond? Expand

The cost for a bail bond is determined from the total bail amount. The bail bond premium (how much the bail bond costs) is typically 10% of the total bail amount. We never charge more than 10%.

I’m Located out of state. Can we still do business? Expand

Yes, we would be more than happy to help you out. We can get the process started over the phone, and explain in detail how bail bond services work. Then we can send you the forms that you need to fill out online. We can also take payment online or over the phone per your convenience. We will dispatch someone to the jail to post the bail bond and ensure a fast and easy release from jail.

How long does it take to get the person bailed out? Expand

A person must be fully booked before the jail will accept a bail bond for that person. To help expedite their release, we can complete the application, bail bond agreement, receipts, etc. so the bail bond can be posted as soon as the booking process has been completed.

People arrested for suspected driving under the influence will be held until the jail feels it will be safe to release them.

The amount of time it takes for someone to get released from a local city jail is usually less than an hour. A person in custody Release times at county jails can vary from 4-8 hours.

Do I get any money back when the case is over? Expand

Bail Bond Premium

You do not get the bail bond premium back. The 10% that was paid is our fee for putting up the total bail amount so the person could get out of jail. It is not refundable. This is spelled out in the Bail Bond Agreement and explained to the person signing it.


Collateral For Bail Bond

Only money that is put up as collateral is returned when the bail bond is exonerated. You will know without a doubt if the money you gave us was collateral because you would have been given a collateral receipt. Separate receipts are given for the bail bond premium and collateral. NOTE: We rarely take collateral, hardly ever. Even more rare is cash collateral.

No charges were filed or the case was dismissed. Do we get any money back? Expand

The bail bond premium is fully earned upon the release of the defendant on our bail bond.

The Bail Bond Agreement explains that the bail bond premium is non-refundable even when a person was wrongly arrested, the case dismissed, the person gets arrested again, etc.

We provide the service of getting the person out of jail regardless of what happens after that.

What happens when a person is not bailed out? Expand

A person that is not bailed out will be taken before a judge within 48  hours excluding weekends and holidays. This first court appearance is called the arraignment. At the arraignment, the defendant is told what they are being charged with, asked if they have an attorney or would like one appointed by the court, asked if they would like to plead guilty or not guilty and then another court date is usually set.

The issue of bail can be addressed at the arraignment. The defendant’s attorney can request that the bail be reduced or that the defendant be released on their own recognizance.  It is important to know that the judge can also raise the bail at the arraignment. Bail agents have no way to know what will happen in court. Judges decide how much a person’s bail will be. The prosecutor can give the judge a recommendation for the bail amount. The defendant’s attorney can make a request that it be lower or that his client be released without having to post bail. Ultimately, the judge will make the decision.


If no charges are filed the person will be released from custody. It may take hours for their release but they will get released.

I signed for a bail bond. What am I responsible for? Expand

If you signed a bail bond agreement you are financially responsible for the defendant making all of his or her court appearances. As long as the defendant makes all of their court appearances, you do not have to pay anything other than the bail bond premium.

If the bail bond premium is not paid in full, you are responsible for making the payments until the balance is paid in full. The bail bond premium must be paid even if not charges are filed or if the case gets dismissed. The bail bond premium is fully earned upon the release of the person from custody.

What happens if the defendant fails to appear in court? Expand

When a person fails to appear in court the judge will usually forfeit the bail bond and issue a warrant for that person’s arrest. Often times people forget about their court date or have some other benign reason for not going to court. It is our policy to try to contact them and/ or the person that signed for their bail bond. We are usually able to make contact with either of them and get the defendant to go back to court.

When we are not able to get the defendant to return to court willingly, we will proactively take steps to return the defendant to court. The indemnitor will be fully responsible for any costs incurred as a result of the defendant’s failure to appear in court.
