One of the most common questions in the bail bond industry is: “How much will my loved one’s bail cost?” The answer is always different, and depends on each client’s situation.
Do you know what a bail schedule is? Do not worry if you have never heard of the term before, most people haven’t. A bail schedule is something put out by a county and it lists every crime and the amount a person’s bail should be for that crime. What this means, is that people who are arrested for different crimes, will receive different bail amounts, and even if two people are arrested for the same crime, they can have different bail amounts if they are in different counties.
On top of that, a person’s criminal record is taken into account. A repeat offender is more likely to get a higher bail than someone who was arrested for the first time.
Now, in California, a bail bond will cost 10% of the bail it is based on. This means, if a person’s bail is set at $10,000, then the bail bond will cost $1,000. Some companies, like Andy More Bail Bonds, are willing to work with their clients.
