Trying to bail a friend or family member out of jail can cause a lot of confusion. Most people have no idea on how to bail a loved one out of jail. No one is ever prepared for such an event, and so when it happens to someone they care about, they are at a loss. That is why our bail agents at Salinas Bail Bond Store work tirelessly to help our clients.
- How much does a bail bond cost?
Pricing is dependent on the amount of the bail. In California, bail bond companies charge 10% of the bail price.
- Do you offer discounts?
Yes. We can offer a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond if a co-signer is a member of the military, a member of AARP, is a homeowner or if the client has a private attorney.
- How much do I have to put up front?
Again, pricing varies from case to case and depends a lot on the people who are co-signing. We like for the initial payment to be around 1% of the bail.
- What happens if I do not bail out my loved one?
Your loved one stays in jail until he or she is either found innocent and released or found guilty and sentenced.
- Do I need to give a collateral?
Most of our bonds do not need collateral. We use your signature in most cases. However, for larger bails, you may need to put down something as collateral. This varies from case to case and depends greatly on the co-signers.
If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to speak with one of our bail agents. They can answer all of your questions regarding your loved one’s release from jail. You can count on Salinas Bail Bond Store to always be there for you whenever you need it most.
