My fiancé was arrested last night and I want to get him out ASAP. The problem is that we don’t have a lot of money right now so I’m looking for the cheapest rate. Am I eligible for 5% bail bonds? How does that work?
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to how much bail bonds cost. In the state of California, the cost to purchase bail bonds are set by the California Department of Insurance and the statewide rate is 10%. If doesn’t matter if your boyfriend was arrested in a large city or a small rural town, the cost to purchase his bail bonds will still be 10%. If you’re unable to pay the bondsman’s fee in full, you should ask the agent you’re speaking with about bail bonds payment plans options. In this case, you can put a set amount down today and pay off the balance in monthly installments.
