Here at San Francisco Bail Bonds in South San Francisco, our agents have to answer a lot of questions about bail every single day. One of the most common questions that they receive is how much the person will have to pay to rescue their loved one from jail. This is understandable. Everyone wants to make sure they can afford to post bail.
This question is a bit hard to answer specifically since the cost of bail changes depending on the crime and the arrested individual. Despite that, it is possible to answer a few questions without specific information. For instance, it is definitely cheaper to bail someone out with a bail bond rather than posting bail on your own. This is because our bail bonds only cost 10% of the bail price.
Since our bail bonds only cost 10% of the bail they are for, you save 90% simply by coming to us for help. In addition, unlike paying for bail, you can pay for the bail bond with a payment plan. This way, the cost of the bail bond is spread out over several months. This reduces the upfront cost of bailing out your loved one, allowing you to afford it sooner. This, in turn, gets your loved one out sooner.
On top of this, we also provide discounts for qualified clients. Clients who have co-signers that meet one of the following requirements can get 20% off the price of their bail bond. With this discount, you only have to pay 8% of the full bail price. To qualify for this discount, a co-signer needs to meet just one of the following requirements:
- Is a union member.
- Is a member of the military.
- Is a member of AARP.
- Is a homeowner.
- Has a private attorney.
The cost of someone’s bail is dependent on the crime they were arrested for, where they were arrested, and their criminal record. If you want specific answers about your loved one’s arrest and bail, you will need to talk to one of our bail agents. They are available 24/7 for free consultations.
