Trusted Los Angeles County Bail Bondsmen
We want to take every step to make sure the bail process in Los Angeles goes quickly and seamlessly for you. By law in California, the cost of a bail bond is 10% of the total amount of the bail. For example: If the amount of the bail is $20,000, you will pay $2,000 to have your family member or friend released from jail just as soon as possible.
During our initial phone consultation, we will collect basic information about the individual’s situation, e.g., where they are being held, how long they have been detained, what the charges are, how long they’ve lived in their current residence, if they’re employed, etc.
When that’s complete, most of our customers prefer to use our bail bond by Fax or e-mail option which permits us to speed up the bail process even faster. Timing from first phone call to completion of paperwork can be accomplished in 15 to 30 minutes for most bonds.
We understand that not everyone may be in the position to afford the full amount of a bail. That’s why we offer flexible payment options. We never tack on any additional finance fees, charges or taxes, and we offer no collateral bail options to qualified applicants. We find that most of our clients choose the convenience of using a credit card, as this is the quickest way to obtain a bail bond. We always accept cash.
Please contact Tonya Page Bail Bonds for further information. You’ll speak with a courteous agent who will listen to your needs and work quickly to have your friend or family member released from any jail in the Los Angeles County.
