How does the bail process work?

Posting of a bail bond.

This process involves a contractual undertaking guaranteed by a bail agent and the individual posting bail.  By posting a bond, the bail agent guarantees to the court that the defendant will appear in court each and every time the judge requires them to.

For this service, the defendant is charged a percentage of the bail amount.  

For your protection the percentage rate is regulated by the California Department of Insurance at 10 percent of the full bond amount.  Bonds up to and including $500.00 in liability will be charged $50.00.

8% when retained by private counsel (Attorney).

8% when you are a Union Member.

8% when you are a government employee.

8% When you are an Active or Veteran of the Military.
