Reasons You Need a Bail Bondsman:

  1. Work with friends or family members to arrange for a bail bond co-signer.
  2. Meet with the arrested person in jail to assure them that help is on the way.
  3. Attend court with the arrested person and pay the bail to the court.
  4. Coordinate with an attorney, if you’ve hired one, to keep everyone informed of all legal requirements and court appearances.

How much does a bail bond cost? Depending on several factors, securing a bail bond for someone who has been arrested will cost you between 10-15% of the total amount of bond set. You will not know that amount until the judge sets the bail amount in court, usually the morning after someone has been arrested. So for example, if the judge sets a bond at $5,000, your bail bond payment would be around $500 – $750. But don’t let that number scare you, a lot depends on the circumstances and the qualifications of your co-signer. We’ll always try to work with you on a payment you can afford.
