- What’s the difference between bail and a bail bond?
Bail is the amount of money that the court requires to be paid for a person to be released from jail. A bail bond is an agreement between a bail agent and their client. The bail agent agrees to pay the full bail for their client and in return, the client agrees to pay the agent 10% of the full bail amount as payment for the service.
- How much does a bail bond cost?
Bail bonds in California cost 10% of the full bail price. At Lancaster Bail Bonds, we can provide a bail bond at only 8% of the cost of the bail clients who qualify.
- How do I qualify for the discount?
To qualify for the discount, one of the co-signers for the bail bond needs to be a member of the military, a member of AARP, a union member, a homeowner, or have a private attorney. AS long as one of those requirements is met, you can qualify for the discount.
- What is a co-signer?
A co-signer is a person who is willing to sign the contract for the bail bond. By signing the contract, co-signers take responsibility for the bail bond and their loved one. This means that it is up to them to make sure payments are made on time and that their loved one goes to all of their court dates. There can be more than one co-signer for a bail bond.
- How much do I have to pay upfront?
This varies from case to case and depends on the size of the bail bond and the co-signers.
