People are often shocked to find out someone they care for has been arrested by a member of the Filmore Police Department. In many cases it catches them completely off guard, especially if their loved one has never been in trouble with the law before. This situation can become even more stressful once they learn the defendant’s bail amount.
California bail amounts are among the highest in the country. You may be shocked to learn the average range is often between $20,000 and $30,000. The cost to hire an expert Filmore bondsman may only be 10% of that total amount but that can still translate into thousands of dollars. Is it possible to get a discount?
The answer to that question is no. The bail industry is overseen and regulated by the Department of Insurance. They, not individual company owners, set the rate at which bail bonds are to be sold. That fee is uniform throughout the state. No matter where in California a person is arrested the cost to hire bondsman will be 10%. Many people are surprised to learn that is against the law for an agent to charge more or less than the set rate.
If you are unable to pay for the full cost all at once be sure to ask your bondsman if they can help you with bail bonds financing.
