One of the most asked questions in the bail bond industry, is how much does a bail bond cost? The problem is, that the answer to that question varies from case to case.
The cost of a bail bond depends on a person’s bail amount, which is assigned by a judge. The judge determines the bail amount by looking at a couple different factors. The judge takes into account the crime that the defendant is accused of and his or her criminal record. After the judge considers those factors, he or she will assign a bail amount.
Bail bond prices are based on the bail that they are for and can vary from state to state. In California, bail bonds will always be 10% of the bail that they are for. If your loved one has a bail set at $10,000, then his or her bail bond will be $1,000.
