People usually have a basic understanding of bail bonds, but they still have a lot of questions when they need to bail someone out of jail. At Los Angeles Bail Bond Store, our bail agents can answer any questions you might have, but we decided we would try to answer some of them for you here.

  • What is 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 or her out using a bail bonds company.

  • Do you offer discounts?
  • Yes. We offer a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond if a co-signer is a member of the military, a member of AARP, is a homeowner, or has a private attorney. With this discount, instead of paying $1,000 for the same bond as before, 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 his or her court dates. A co-signer takes responsibility for their loved one.

  • How do I make payments?
  • We accept a number of different payment methods. 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 a local office.

  • How much do I have to pay?
  • The 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?
  • We do not charge interest, you only have to pay the 10%.

  • 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 of jail in as little as 2 hours. However, the time varies from county to county and can be anywhere from 2 hours to several, depending on the current workload of the jail.
