To purchase a bail bond in California, each bond agency is mandated by state law to charge a set rate. According to the law, you are responsible for 10% of the bond. Because this is the law, this price is non-negotiable. However, some cases offer an 8% discount rate for certain eligible bail bonds. We offer multiple payment options, including all major credit cards, cash and no cost financing for those who qualify.
