IRVINE BAIL BONDS

When a family member or friend is incarcerated and bail is set by the court, how can you come up with the large amount that the court requires to release the person? The first step is to find a reliable and trustworthy bail bond service in Irvine. There Bail Bond agents and services in the Irvine area. You should make sure that you find a service that is professional, bonded and licensed.

What exactly is bail? Bail is the money that must be posted with the court to release person who has been arrested. It is a kind of insurance and that the person will appear in court when they are summoned. The amount of money can be thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, much more than most people have.

Bail Bond Services - how do they work?
A Bail Bond Service will work with you to post the entire amount to the court so the person can be released. This is called a bail bond. The Bail Bond agent or bondsman will enter a contract with you, where he/she will charge you a non-refundable fee of 10% of the total bail in return for posting the entire bail. For example, if bail is $10,000, you will pay the bondsman $1,000.

After all court appointments are fulfilled, the defendant attends, and the case is resolved, the court exonerates your bond, and the bond agent is refunded the money. On the other hand, if the accused person does not attend their court appointments, then the court keeps the bail and your bail bond is forfeited.

Depending on the situation, the Bail Bond agent may need to collect collateral from you. Collateral is used as a physical guarantee that the person will appear in court, and may include credit cards, cash, or the deed of trust for a house. In this case, if the defendant does not show up in court, and you don't re-pay the bail money to the bail bondsman, then your collateral will be used to pay the court.

How Much Will The Bail Be?
In the state of California, a bail schedule is determined by the judge in the case. The judge uses bail schedule guidelines, then they apply particular factors of the case to set the final bail. Factors include:
• Flight risk
• Criminal history
• Facts of the case.

Sometimes the judge decides that no bail can be posted and the defendant must remain in custody until the case is determined.
