Bail Bonds in Tulare County
Bail Bond Process and Cost
When you call us, a bondsman will answer any questions you have about bail bonds in Tulare County. If you would like to start a bail bond, we can get the necessary paperwork started over the phone. Our simple paperwork can also be completed by fax or email, or a bail agent can meet with you at a location that’s convenient for you, such as your home or office.
Any information you can provide us will be helpful. We’ll need to know the defendant’s full legal name and date of birth, the bail amount, the name of the jail facility they are being held at, and the list of charges. However, an expert bail bondsman can help you even if you do not have all of this information.
The cost of a bail bond is 10% of the bail amount. For example, if bail is set at $15,000, you will pay a bondsman $1,500.
We know that paying this amount of money is an unexpected expense that many people cannot afford. That is why we offer several bail bond payment options, including all major credit cards and payment plans.
After paperwork is complete, we will post bail for your friend or family member at any of the Tulare County Jails 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
We know how distressing it can be to know that a loved one is in jail. We will work quickly to make sure that they are released in as little time as possible.

Booking and Processing
When someone is arrested in Tulare County, they will be taken to a local Tulare Detention Center for booking and processing. Depending on how busy the staff at the jail is at the time of arrest, it could take several hours to complete the booking process. The detainee will be fingerprinted and photographed. They will be searched for any weapons or drugs and their personal belongings will be cataloged and locked up by the jailer. The detainee will not have access to dell phones, credit cards, money, etc. while they are being held. A background check and nationwide warrant search will also be done.
In California, the bail amounts are set on a county-by-county basis. Each year, the county judges review the bail schedule and make any necessary adjustments. Each county’s bail schedule will be used by law enforcement officers and the courts when setting a bail amount. If the detainee is eligible for bail, it will be set once booking is complete. There are also circumstances where the judge will release a defendant on their own recognizance (“OR”) or, in some cases, detain them without bail.
After the defendant is completely booked into the system, they will be able to post bail or have a bondsman post a bond for them.
