San Bernardino Bail Bonds Services - California

"Bail" refers to money that must be posted with the court in order to release an incarcerated person from custody.  San Bernardino bail  bond is a sort of insurance that the person will attend the required court appearances.  The amount can be thousands of dollars, and most people do not have enough cash on hand to post the bail.

How do I get a San Bernardino bail bond?  

There are many San Bernardino bail bond companies that exist only to help you post bail.   They will post the bail for you, by way of a bail bond.  A bail bond is a contract that is entered with a bail agent or bondsman.  The bail agent in San Bernardino will post the entire bail amount a non-refundable fee of 10% of the total bail.  For example, if bail is $10,000, you will pay the bondsman $1,000. 

A bail bond is good for one year.   If the case extends beyond that, the bondsman may require an additional premium to secure your bond.
After the person attends all court appointments and the case is resolved, the court will exonerate your bond, and the bond agent is refunded the money.

The court uses a “bail schedule” to determine the amount of bail for all California misdemeanors and felonies.  The judge uses this bail schedule as a guideline, and sets bail, depending on several factors such as:

  • Criminal history
  • Fight risk
  • Facts of the case.

Sometimes the judge will deny bail and the person must remain in custody.  When bail is an option, there are two common ways to post bail: 1) by using cash, or 2) by securing a bail bond.
To post cash bail, the full amount must be with the clerk of the court or with the arresting agency. 
The full amount will be refunded to the person who posted bail if all court dates are attended.  The refund takes 60-90 days following the resolution of the case. Failure to appear will result in forfeiting all the bail money to the court. 
Since most people don’t have the means to post cash bail, bail bonds are more often used.
