LONG BEACH BAIL BONDS FAQs
ANSWERS BY BAIL BONDS LONG BEACH
What are bail bonds?
A bail bond is often referred to as a surety bond because it is given by a bail bondsman who is backed by a surety company. The agent promises to post the bail on behalf of the client for a small fee of 10% and the defendant promises to go to all of his or her court dates. If the defendant fails to appear to court then the bond is revoked and he or she is taken back to jail.
What can I pay the bond with?
You could pay off a bail bond with any major credit card, cash or check. Our agency also offers the option of setting up a payment plan that will fit your budget.
Do you charge interest on payment plans?
No, we do not charge any of our clients any interest. However, we may need to collect some form of collateral in order to do the payment plan.
