One of our bail agents will be able to work with you locally, while another works with the jail.

Most importantly, you want to find a bail agent that you can trust. The best way to decide if you can trust a bail agent, is to ask for his or her license number. Ours is 1841120. If the bail agent will not share their license number with you, then something is wrong and you need to find another bail agent. Having the bail agent’s license number allows you to look him or her up and see how good of a bail agent he or she is in the eyes of the state of California.

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

Are you looking to bail a friend or family member out of jail, but are worried about the cost? Do not fret, San Bernardino Bail Bond Store can help you out. We have been making bail bonds cheap and affordable for Californians for the last 30 years.

In California, all bail bonds start out as 10% of the person’s bail. This means that if your loved one’s bail is set at $10,000, his or her bail bond will only cost $1,000. This is the standard price set by the state of California, however, some bail bond companies can offer you a discount.

At San Bernardino Bail Bond Store, we are able to offer qualified clients a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond. What this means is, instead of paying 10% of the bail, you only pay 8%. If we use the same bail from before, the new price of the bail bond would be $800 with this discount. To qualify for this discount, you must be one of the following:

  • A union member
  • A member of the military
  • A member of AARP
  • A homeowner
  • Have a private attorney

If you meet one of those requirements, then we can give you the discount.

On top of that discount, all of our clients can pay their bail bond off with a personalized payment plan. At San Bernardino Bail Bond Store, we know that no 2 people are alike, which means we should not expect 2 individuals to pay off their bail bond in the same way. That is why our bail agents will work with you to create a customized payment plan.

If you are looking for an affordable bail bond, then come to San Bernardino Bail Bond Store.

“How Much Does Bail Cost & How Do I Post Bail?”

  • What’s better; a bail agent or a bail bondsman?
  • These two titles may sound different but they really mean the same thing. A bail agent is a bail bondsman and vice versa.

  • How much does a bail bond cost?
  • Pricing is dependent on the amount of the bail. In California, bail bonds companies charge 10% of the bail price. If your loved one’s bail is $10,000, then it will cost $1,000 to bail him out using a bail bonds company.

  • Do you offer discounts?
  • Yes. At San Bernardino Bail Bond Store we can offer a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond if a co-signer is a member of the military, AARP, is a homeowner, or if the client has a private attorney. With this discount, instead of paying $1,000 for the same bond, you only have to pay $800.

  • What is a co-signer?
  • A co-signer is anyone who is willing to sign for your loved one’s release. The signer is promising that all the money will be paid and that their loved one will go to all of their court dates. A co-signer takes responsibility for their loved one.

  • How do I make payments?
  • We accept a number of different payment methods at San Bernardino Bail Bond Store. We accept cash, checks and most major credit cards. We also have the ability to accept payments online, over the phone, or in person at an office.

  • How much do I have to pay?
  • Again, cost depends on the price of the bail itself. Initially you need to pay 10% of the bail. Depending on your information, we may be able to offer discounts.

  • With interest, how much do I have to pay?
  • At San Bernardino Bail Bond Store we do not charge interest, you only have to pay the 10%.

  • How much do I have to put up front?
  • Again, pricing varies from case to case and depends vastly on the people who are co-signing the bail bond.

  • How long does it take for my loved one to be released?
  • After the initial payment has been received, your loved one can be out in as little as two hours. However, the time varies from county to county. Time can vary anywhere from 2 hours to several, depending on the current workload of the jail.

  • Can you see if I have a warrant?
  • Yes, we can. If you think there might be a warrant out for your arrest, just call San Bernardino Bail Bond Store and we will see if you do indeed have a warrant.

  • Who can bail out my friend?
  • Anyone who cares about your friend can bail him or her out of jail. You do not have to be related to someone to bail him or her out of jail.

  • Can you bail my friend in Nevada out of jail?
  • No. At San Bernardino Bail Bond Store we are only licensed to bail people out of jail in California. If you want to bail someone out of jail in a state other than California, you will need to contact a bail agent in that state.

  • Do you do immigration bonds?
  • No. There are companies that specialize in those kinds of bonds.

  • What happens if I do not bail out my friend or family member?
  • Your loved one stays in jail until he is either found innocent and released or found guilty and sentenced. Until then your loved one has to go to all court appearances in an orange jumpsuit which does not look good to the court.

  • If I cannot bail somebody out immediately, up to how many days do I have to be able to bail them out of jail?
  • There is no time limit to bailing a friend or family member out of jail. Your loved one can be bailed out of jail until he or she has been sentenced.

  • Do I need to give collateral?
  • Most bonds at San Bernardino Bail Bond Store do not need collateral. We use your signature as collateral in most cases. However, for larger bails, starting around $100,000, you may need to put down something as collateral. This varies from case to case and depends greatly on the co-signers.

  • What happens if I miss a payment?
  • If you happen to miss a payment, it is not a huge deal. If you know in advance that you are going to be late on a payment, let us know. We know that life can be difficult at times and that things that were certain a few months ago, might have changed. If your budget has changed, we can work with you on payment and even readjust your payment plan to fit your budget better.

  • Can you tell me what my friend or family member was arrested for?
  • Yes, we can. Just give us your friend or family member’s name, birthday, and the county where he or she was arrested. We use that information to find your loved one in the county system and to answer any of your questions.

  • Do I have to wait to finish making my final payment before I can be bailed out again?
  • No. We can even adjust the payments on your first bail bond to make it easier on you to pay for both of them.

  • If I get approved, how much time do I have to make the first payment?
  • It depends on your individual situation. We customize our payment plans to work with your budget and situation.

  • Will I receive a statement every month?
  • Yes.

  • What is collateral?
  • Collateral is something of equal value to the bail bond that the co-signer puts up to cover the bond. If the client fails to pay for the bail bond, then the company takes whatever was put up as collateral.

  • Can I use a payment plan to pay for the bail bond?

Yes. We create payment plans for all of our clients to help make paying for the bail bond easier. We will work with you to create a customized payment plan that fits into your personal budget. The payments will break up the large cost of the bail bond into smaller, more manageable monthly payments.

Tax Returns Will Alleviate Bail Bond Payments

call-ontario-bail-bonds-

If should be receiving your tax return soon if you haven’t already and just as many people would agree, we recommend using that money wisely. If you owe no money to anyone, aren’t in debt, don’t have bills or payments to pay off, that’s great! Perhaps you can invest the money or allocate it towards future, large payments like your child’s education. But if you do have payments to make still, then you should definitely use your tax return for that. Bail bond payments fall under that category. You probably weren’t thinking this because this is not a usual thing you are paying like rent or groceries. You were kind of thrown into this situation all of a sudden. But your tax return money is an opportunity to help alleviate some of this financial burden.

Tax returns are 100% acceptable for bail bond companies, as they accept this money in any other way as they normally would – cash, credit or debit, or check. Of course you’ll have to wait until the money is cleared in your account before you can move it, transfer it, cash it, etc. We want to make this process as simplified and understandable as possible for you and remember, we’re here to help you through the whole thing. Get in touch now!

An Example Of A False Report

call colton-bail-bonds-

It’s not very surprising, but instead disappointing, that there are people in prison who have been wrongly convicted of a crime. The person could be in prison because investigators were lazy, the jury was lazy or racist or sexist, the technology to test DNA and evidence was not as precise and accurate as it is today, or a victim or witness lied.

Every so often, a wrongly convicted individual is finally released early, after having his or her name cleared. Lake County’s 71-year-old Luther Jones is one of these men.

Jones spent 18 years in prison for allegedly molesting a 10-year-old girl. The girl’s mother made her lie and say Jones was the man responsible. Now 20 years later, that same little girl, now a 30-year-old woman, admits the truth and recants her claim that Jones molested her.

Because of this, Jones is released and received $1 million from the state and the girl’s mother could now face criminal charges for making a false report – and for costing a man many years of freedom. The woman can be arrested and tried in court. She could face fines and even prison time herself.

This is an example of the consequences of making a false report. You’re not only ruining another person’s life, you’re effectively ruining yours too. If you or someone you know is in jail for the time being and is offered bail, contact Penny Bail Bonds to get a bail bond to secure release.

How You Know If You Can Apply For A Bail Bond

call san-bernardino-bail-bonds

Most defendants will be eligible to apply for a bail bond to get out of jail if they wish to use this route; however, not all defendants will qualify for a bail bond. You don’t need to be above or below a certain average household income. You don’t need to be of a certain age. It doesn’t matter if you’ve used a bail bond before or not. There is only one thing, or actually one person, who will decide if you qualify for a bail bond, and that is the judge at your arraignment hearing.

The arraignment hearing occurs after the defendant has been arrested and booked, and before the actual trial. This is when the charges are formally announced and bail is determined. The judge can declare that the defendant to be held without bail – meaning they have to remain in custody (usually for those accused of the most heinous crimes or considered a high flight risk), or the judge can announce that the defendant’s bail is set at a certain price. Bail prices follow a bail schedule that is reviewed annually, and the defendant’s ties to the community and whether or not they have a pre-existing criminal record will also be taken into consideration.

By attending your arraignment hearing, you’ll know if you can apply for a bail bond. If you’re offered bail, you can contact a bail bond agent from San Bernardino Bail Bonds as immediately afterwards as possible. The company is available 24/7 state-wide in California and will work with you and your supportive family and friends to get you out of jail fast.

So, don’t waste any time – get in touch with San Bernardino Bail Bonds online or call 866-736-6977 .

The Positivity Behind Bail Bonds

call fontana-bail-bonds

Most people tend to associate negative thoughts and feelings with bail bonds because it means that someone they love was arrested for a crime. The idea of associating positivity, relief, and care with bail bonds is at the very back of their minds, if at all. But these emotions should really manifest louder than negativity because it’s what is going to help loved ones get through this situation together.

Think about bail bonds as bringing a loved one home so that you can look after them and support them now more than ever. Think less of it as a part of their arrest. By considering the lighter side of the situation, you and your loved one will grow closer together. You’ll help them focus their coming months. You’ll help them be a better person, a stronger person.

Plenty of friends and families are torn apart in similar situations and that’s the last thing you should want for yourself. That’s the last thing we at Fontana Bail Bond Store want to see. We’ll help you afford bail if you let us and if you let us, we’re confident you and your loved one will form a more united, closer bond than before.
