If you've never had to hire a California bail bond agent before, you probably have a lot of questions about how the bail bond process works. Below are some important things you will want to keep in mind.
Bail bond fees are non-refundable, no matter what happens in court or if the case is dropped. The fee you pay to a California bondsman is considered earned in full when it is paid; it will not be refunded, in part or full, regardless as to the outcome of the case.
The cost to purchase bail bonds in California are set according to state law. All companies are required to charge the same rate, whether they were arrested in Los Angeles or San Francisco.
Many people think the fee they pay to a bail bondsman needs to be paid up front, in full, in cash. However, ExpertBail agents accept many forms of payment and some will allow you the option of making payments.
Bail bonds can be posted 24-hours a day, 7-days a week if you are using an ExpertBail agent.
Do your homework! If you aren't comfortable with the first bail bond agent you speak with, call someone else. You should look for a reputable, professional and trustworthy company.

Someone you know has been arrested in the state of California... now what do you do? The process of arranging California bail bonds isn't nearly as complex as many people think. If you have been notified that a friend or family member has been arrested and taken to one of the local jails, you will want to contact a bail bond agent ASAP. The bail agent will ask you questions like where the person was arrested, what jail they are at and against what charges. If you don't know any of that information, that's okay. Our ExpertBail agents are here to help you.
We will answer any questions you have and can help you understand what needs to be done to get the defendant released from custody fast.
In California, everyone who is not being held on a "no bail hold" has a right to bail bonds. A judge is the only one who has the power to release a parole, probation or immigration hold. You will also want to keep in mind that the California bail bonds process isnot immediate. It will take the defendant between 4 and 6 hours to be fully booked and processed into the jail. That's not to say you can't begin working on the bail bond process immediately though. The faster you are able to arrange bail bonds, the quicker you can get your loved one out of a California jail.
