One of the first things that happen when you’re arrested is a court appearance to determine the specific charges and assignment of bail, if appropriate. Unfortunately for most people, the amount of bail set is too high to pay without causing undue financial hardship. The good news is that Acme Bail Bonds can help and ensure you get out of jail fast to help build a defense.
When you work with a bail bond company to get out of jail and await trial, you will only need to pay a portion of the total bail amount. In California, that amount is typically 10 percent. This 10% bail bond fee will allow Acme Bail Bonds to post your entire bail amount. For example, if your bail is set at $50,000, you will be responsible for $5,000 or 10%, and Acme Bail Bonds will assume the liability on the entire $50,000 amount. If you’re unable to come up with the entire 10% fee upfront, it’s OK. Acme Bail Bonds offers 0% interest-free financing, allowing you to spread monthly payments across a longer period of time. The 10% fee is non-refundable and the bail company will have the expectation that you will prioritize and attend all court obligations.
Depending on the situation and risk level, some bail scenarios will require collateral in addition to the 10% premium. This collateral provides for greater assurance that a defendant will appear in court and follow through with any mandated terms. Common forms of collateral may include a house deed, car title, jewelry with significant value and even cash. Assuming that a defendant meets all agreed upon terms, the collateral will be diligently returned upon exoneration of the bond.
