The amount of a person’s bail will depend on the severity and the nature of the crime they have been charged with. If the offense is considered to be minor, bail will be set lower. If the offense is considered serious, bail will be set higher. The cost of Alameda bail bonds will depend on what the defendant’s bail has been set at. In California, you can expect to pay 10% of the total bail to a bondsman in order for them to post a bond.
In California, people who work within our industry are required to be licensed by the California Department of Insurance (DOI). The DOI, not individual bondsmen, sets the rate at which Alameda bail bonds companies are to charge their clients. It is against the law for bondsmen to charge more or less than the set legal rate.
When someone is arrested they will first need to be “booked in”. This process involves being fingerprinted, having mug shots taken and undergoing a national background check and warrant screen. The booking process can take between four and six hours and the jail will not accept a bond until this step is complete. When you contact a expert Alameda bail bondsman early on in the process this can help ensure the jail release process happens as quickly as possible.
