Bail Bonds Cost

Los Angeles Bail Cost

If you’re trying to receive services for bail in Los Angeles, you should know that California State law ensures bail bondsmen fees to be non-negotiable. Like most states, California bail bonds businesses get paid 10% of the total bail assigned to your case by a judge.

This price cannot be lowered or raised for any reason, by law.

If a Los Angeles bail bondsman claims to offer a discount or coupon, or even the enticing prospect of 5% bail bonds, it is most likely they are doing so illegally.

Do you really want someone who is breaking the law to represent you or your family member in financial cases where your assets may be at stake as collateral? How do you know they won’t try to cheat YOU as well?

In addition, Los Angeles bail bonds are not allowed to have any hidden fees or extra charges. If a bail bondsman in Los Angeles tries to tell you that they need more money than the original 10% fee, they are taking advantage of your desperation. Los Angeles bail businesses are also forbidden from charging interest on long-term financing plans.

How Does Posting Bail in Los Angeles Work?

As mentioned, the cost to the bail bondsman in Los Angeles is 10% of the total bail. That means, for example, if the judge sets the defendant’s bail at $10,000, then you will to pay $1,000 to the bail bond company you select. It’s that simple.

  • No bargaining or negotiating prices.
  • No hidden charges.
  • No taking advantage of the client’s desperation to get more money.

The 10% is all you have to pay for bail in Los Angeles. If someone tells you otherwise, they may be trying to take advantage of you.
