Bail Bond Rates in San Diego County
The state of California sets a standard rate for all bail companies to charge to post a bail bond for a defendant. That amount is 10% of the total amount of bail. Meaning, if the bail amount is $20,000, the bail bondsman is required to charge you $2,000 to post a bond in place of the bail. While this may still seem like a lot of money, it is significantly less than having to pay the entire amount. The rates the law requires for Federal and Immigration Bonds may be higher. They can be as much as 15 – 20%. It’s important to know that all of these rates are set by state statute, and all bail bond companies are required to charge the same amount.
However, discounts are available from Justice Bail Bonds. California law allows for a discounted rate on bail bonds if the defendant retains a private attorney and pays the premium in full within 72 hours. These discounts are available for government union workers, members of the military, and AARP members.
