Experienced San Diego Bail Bond Agents

A bail bond functions as a formal commitment signed by the defendant, their family, friends, or a licensed bail agent. It guarantees that upon the defendant’s release from jail, they’ll attend all court appointments throughout their case. In the event of the defendant’s absence and forfeiture of the bail bond, the money or assets pledged for their release becomes payable to the court.

The bail process allows individuals accused of a crime to secure temporary release from custody pending trial. After arrest, a judge sets bail based on various factors like the severity of the alleged offense, flight risk, and community ties. To secure release, the defendant, or their loved ones through a bail bondsman, pays the set amount as collateral, ensuring the defendant’s appearance at court dates. If the defendant attends all hearings, the bail money is returned regardless of the trial’s outcome.

Usually, the fee amounts to 10% of the bail amount. For instance, if the bail set is $15,000.00, the defendant pays the licensed bail agent a premium of $1,500.00, which is 10% of the bail amount. Although California law permits bail agents to impose posting and administrative fees on top of the 10% premium, you do not pay additional fees or charges with Affordably Easy Bail Bonds.

  1. Location of detention: Specify the state, city, and jail where the person is held.
  2. Full name and booking number: This information allows the agent to contact the jail and arrange for bail.
  3. Bail amount: If you’re unaware of this, the agent can obtain it from the jail. Once the bail is confirmed, the agent can determine the premium amount required.

If you face re-arrest, a new bail will be set. To secure release, you’ll need to pay bail again or obtain another bond from the agency. The previous bond won’t apply to the new situation, and the court might increase your bail, considering you a potential risk based on the prior occurrence.

Not every bond necessitates a co-signer. A co-signer acts as the responsible party for the defendant during their release on bail, ensuring their presence at all court appearances and timely payments. Additionally, the co-signer takes on financial liability for the entire bail amount if the defendant fails to appear in court, leading to forfeiture of the bail bond.

Absolutely, we accept out-of-state co-signers. Essential documents can be sent electronically or via fax for their review and signature. Payments can be conveniently processed through credit card transactions over the phone or via wire transfer.

When a defendant misses any scheduled court appearance during their case, it results in the forfeiture of the bail bond and the issuance of a bench warrant for the defendant’s arrest. However, if the defendant promptly contacts Affordably Easy Bail Bonds after missing court, a bail agent might assist in reinstating the bail bond, preventing jail time, and aiding in setting a new court date.

Reinstatement happens when a bail bond, previously in forfeiture status, is reactivated with the court. If a defendant, out on bail, misses a court appearance, the bail bond securing their release is forfeited. To reinstate the bail bond, the defendant needs to contact Affordably Easy Bail Bonds. This prompts the court notification and allows a bail agent to aid in scheduling a new court date. This reporting process to the court reinstates the defendant’s bail bond, thereby removing any active bench warrant resulting from the bond forfeiture.

The court determines bail, either through a judge’s assessment of the defendant’s charges or by using a bail schedule that outlines predetermined bail amounts for typical charges. However, the judge overseeing the case holds the authority to adjust bail amounts based on specific aggravating or mitigating factors surrounding the case.

For a defendant to be released from jail on bail, the court requires the complete bail amount. This sum can be provided directly to the court in cash or through a bond facilitated by a bail agent. If the defendant opts for a bail agent to cover the full bail amount with a bond, they’ll pay the bail agent a Premium fee to facilitate their release from jail. This Premium fee usually stands at 10% of the bail bond amount. For instance, if the court sets bail at $10,000.00, the bail agent’s charged Premium would be $1,000.00.

Leaving the state or country while out on bail requires permission from both the court and the bond agency. Such permission is rarely granted and is typically reserved for exceptional circumstances. In most cases, the answer is no—you are not allowed to leave while out on bail.
