Frequently Asked Bail Bond Questions

Do I get the 10% fee back?

No bondsman ever refunds the 10% fee. This non-refundable fee, or "premium" is how a bondsman makes money and pays for the bail bond. Without charging this premium a bondsman would be working for free.

How do I post cash bail? Does it require a bondsman?

Cash bail is when the FULL amount of the bail is posted at the Sheriff's office, HPD, or OCCC. For example, if a client's bail is at $50,000, then that full amount can be given to the State of Hawaii to guaranty the appearance of a defendant.  You do not need a bondman to post cash bail
