Q.My son was arrested last night in Riverside County and his bail has been set at $25,000. How much money do I need to pay a bondsman in order to get him out of jail?
A. The cost to purchase bail bonds in Riverside County, CA will be 10% of the total bail amount. If your son’s bail has been set at $25,000 you can expect to pay a bondsman $2,500 to purchase a bond. You will want to keep in mind that the $2,500 is a non-refundable fee paid for the service they provide. It is not something you will get back. The California bail industry is regulated by the Department of Insurance (DOI) and it’s the DOI, not individual company owners, that set the rate at which bondsmen charge their clients. No matter what California town, municipality or city a person is arrested in, the rate to purchase their bond will be 10%. If you are unable to pay the full cost up front you may consider asking the bondsman you are working with if they are able to assist you with no interest bail bonds financing. Some companies offer this, others do not. Some require a set percentage down and that the balance be paid off within 12 months. Others are more flexible with their clients when it comes to the term of the payment plan and the amount of money that needs to be put down. You’ll want to be sure to ask your bondsman lots of questions before you commit to signing any paperwork.
