The three steps below provide detailed information on how the bail process works.
1. Bail Amount Set by the Court
After an arrest, the court will set a bail amount, which varies based on the charges and other contributing factors. This is done as a way of making sure that the defendant appears at the scheduled court date (or dates) following his or her release from jail.
2. Contact PG-13 Bail Bonds (818) 373-4444
After the bail amount is set, the first thing to do is contact Peter at PG-13 Bail Bonds for free initial bail information. We will put our expertise and experience to work for you immediately. Simply provide us with some basic information like the defendant’s name and the name of the jail or city where they are located.
3. Processing & Finalizing Release
We then work with you or your loved one and the jail to secure release by issuing a bond in the full amount of the bail set by the court. Depending on the circumstances, collateral or a co-signer may be required.
Bail Rates & Payment Flexibility
To offer services in California, a bail service provider charges a premium—a percentage of the total bail amount, typically 10%.
For example: The premium for a bail bond in the amount of $10,000 would be $1,000. The bail service provider must charge the premium rate that it has filed with the Department of Insurance and the premium is not refundable once the defendant has been released. The premium rate charged may vary by state.
PG-13 Bail Bonds provides the most cost effective services and custom payment plans to suit your financial situation. We make bail as easy for you or your loved one as possible.
