Questions to Ask a Bail Bondsman

When deciding to work with a bondsman to help release your friend or family member from jail, there are some questions you should ask before signing an agreement with one: • What is the cost of a bail bond? In California, the cost of a bail bond is 10% of the bail amount. So, if bail is set at $10,000, you will pay a fee of $1,000. If a bondsman says they are willing to negotiate or offer a lower fee, they are operating their business illegally.

  • When will the defendant be released? No bail bondsman will be able to give you an exact release time, so be wary of anyone who promises you a definite one. How long it takes to be released is dependent on several factors within the jail and safety is always the top priority. An agent experienced with the jail will be able to give an accurate estimate, however.
  • Are you licensed? All bondsmen must be licensed by the California Department of Insurance in order to operate. Status of their licensing can be found out through the Department of Insurance.
  • Are you listed with the Better Business Bureau? Companies listed with the BBB are given a grade that will give you a better idea of how positive your experience with that company will be. You can also look at any complaints against the company.
  • Can you explain the bail bond process to me? Any legitimate bail bondsman will be able to walk you through the entire process, explaining everything so that you know what to expect.
