Q: How much does a bail bond cost?
A: Most bail bond premiums (fee) start at 10% of the full bail amount. For example, if the full bail amount is $10,000.00, the premium for the bail bond is $1,000.00.
Q: What will I need in order to secure a bail bond?
A: In addition to the required bail bond premium, you will need the following items
- Proof of Identification
- Proof of Income (paycheck-stub, W2, 1099, or bank statement)
- Proof of Residence
The bail bond agent will also need personal information from you such as
- Social Security Number
- Birth date
- Driver’s license number
- Phone numbers
- Employer’s name address and phone
- Any other information deemed necessary to help determine whether you qualify as an indemnitor (co-signer).
Q: Is the bail bond premium refundable?
A: Once the bail bond is posted and accepted by a court or jail, liability is taken on the bail bond. At that point the bail bond premium is fully earned and is not refundable.
Q: Who is liable for the bail bond?
A: Both the Defendant and Indemnitor are financially liable for the bail bond. The defendant and indemnitor’s liability is limited to the full face value of the bail bond and bail bond fee. Note: It is very important the indemnitor feels confident that the defendant will appear in all of his/her court appearances or posting a bail bond is not recommended.
