Frequently Asked Questions
Have questions about Bail Bonds in Fullerton? We've got answers.
A bail bond is a financial guarantee made on behalf of the defendant that they will make all of their court appearances. A bail bond is a service provided by a bail bondsman. The bail bondsman guarantees the full amount of the bail to the court via the use of an insurance bond, and charges the defendant a percentage of the total bail amount for this service.
All bail bondsman provide the same basic service of posting a bond with the court that secures the release of a defendant. The difference between companies is in the quality of service, the terms of the agreement that they work out with you, and whether they offer additional services.
At 1st Class Bail Bonds for example, we don’t charge for a new bond fee is your court case takes longer than a year. Most companies charge for this, which means that if your case takes longer than a year you have to pay for a new bail bond. This can be very expensive and we don’t believe you should have to pay twice for the same service.
An indemnitor is the person who assumes the financial liability for bailing someone out of jail. In the event that the defendant doesn’t show up in court, the indemnitor, or the person who cosigns the bail bond agreement, will be financially responsible for the bail bond.
The cost of a bail bond is 10% of the total bond amount. If the bail amount is $25,000 then the bail bond will cost $2,500. In some cases we may be able to work out payment plans, depending on your work history and credit. Call to find out what we can do for you. 714-990-0960
Depending on how busy the Fullerton Jail is, it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours for someone to be released. The best way to find out how long it will take for someone to get released is to call us at 714-990-0960.
A bail bond can be posted as soon as the inmate has been checked into the jail and has gone through the standard booking procedure. This process usually takes around 20 minutes.
Collateral is a something of value used to secure against the debt obligation in case the bail bond is forfeited.
If a defendant has experienced a bail forfeiture, they can have their bail bond reinstated with the court, which will also remove their bench warrant.
A bail forfeiture takes place if the defendant does not show up in court. At that point the bail bondsman is responsible for finding the defendant and has 180 days to do so or they will have to pay the full amount of the bail bond to the court.
