How Newport Beach Bail Bonds Work

August 16, 2017 Comments Off on How Newport Beach Bail Bonds Work posted by: Bail Expert
 

When someone is arrested in Newport Beach, the most common way to get that person released from jail involves calling a Newport Beach bail bondsman.

When you contact a bail bondsman, they will ask you to provide some basic information about the defendant including when they were arrested, what their charges are and how much their bail is. If you don’t have all of this information on hand that’s OK; the bondsman will be able to look that information up very quickly.

The cost to purchase bail bonds in Orange County will be 10% of the defendant’s total bail amount. Most people choose to pay the bondsman using a credit or debit card. If you’re unable to pay the fee up front in full, simply ask the bondman about how bail bonds payment plans work.

Once the bail bond application is complete and payment arrangements have been made, the bondsman will be sent to the Newport Beach Jail to post the defendant’s bail bonds.  In most cases, your loved one will be released from jail within an hour.

Three Facts about Newport Beach Bail Bonds

August 7, 2017 Comments Off on Three Facts about Newport Beach Bail Bonds posted by: Bail Expert
 

If you’ve learned that someone you care for has been arrested by the Newport Beach Police Department, you’ll want to keep the following three things in mind.

  1. The fee you pay to purchase bail bonds is non-refundable. Although many people believe their bail bonds fees will be refunded as long as the defendant goes to court, this is simply not true. The only way you’ll get your full bail bond fee back is if you put the defendant’s full bail amount up with the jail (as opposed to paying 10% to a bondsman). If you put full cash bail up with the jail, the monies will be returned to whoever put it up, less administrative fees, once the case is over.
  2. Not all bail bonds companies work the same. Some offer flexible bail bonds payment plans with zero percent financing, others charge credit check fees, fees for paying by phone using a credit card and others require you pay up front in full, in cash.  You’ll want to find a bondsman that can work with you in a way you’re most comfortable.
  3. Not all bail bonds companies require you come into their office to handle paperwork. Some offer online bail bonds or bail bonds through e-docs.

What Portion of my Newport Beach Bail Bonds Fees Will Be Refunded?

July 26, 2017 Comments Off on What Portion of my Newport Beach Bail Bonds Fees Will Be Refunded? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My son was arrested in Newport Beach last night and we paid the bondsman $5,000 to get him out of jail. A friend told me that as long as my son goes to court and that once the case is over, we should get some of the bail money back. Is this true? What percentage of the bail bonds fees are generally returned?

This is a very common misconception. The fees you pay to purchase bail bonds in California are non-refundable, no matter what happens with your son’s case.  The bondsman’s fees are considered to be earned in full at the time a defendant is released from custody and they will not be refunded in part or in full regardless as to whether the case is dismissed, if charges aren’t filed or if the defendant is found not guilty.

What to Do If You’re Arrested in Newport Beach

July 3, 2017 Comments Off on What to Do If You’re Arrested in Newport Beach posted by: Bail Expert
 

If you find yourself in a position where you’re being taken into custody by a member of the Newport Beach Police Department, you’ll want to do your best to remain calm.

You won’t be able to talk your way out of the arrest (officers have heard every excuse in the book) and you shouldn’t be argumentative, difficult and you should never try to resist arrest.  People who try to flee or evade arrest are likely to face additional charges.

You’ll also want to remember that you have the right to remain silent. Do not discuss the details of your case with anyone unless an attorney is present.  When you get to the jail, you’ll be asked to provide basic information including your name, address, the type of work you do and whether you have any underlying medical issues. If the jailer or if investigators ask you about the case, tell them you won’t answer any questions without your lawyer.

Responsibilities When You Co-Sign for Newport Beach Bail Bonds

June 21, 2017 Comments Off on Responsibilities When You Co-Sign for Newport Beach Bail Bonds posted by: Bail Expert
 

If you’ve learned that someone you care for has been arrested and taken to the Newport Beach Jail, it’s natural to want to help get this person out of jail as fast as possible.

At the same time, you’ll want to remember that hiring a bondsman entails more than just paying a bail bonds fee.  When you sign the bail bonds paperwork, you’re promising the defendant will appear for all of their necessary court dates.  If they flee because they’re trying to evade prosecution, you will become responsible for paying additional fees should the bail bonds company need to hire a fugitive recovery agent (bounty hunter) in order to return them to court.

If the bondsman is unable to get the defendant back into the system within a year, you’ll be liable to pay the full original bail amount to the court as a penalty.

Ultimately, you’ll want to make sure you read any legally binding contract, including a bail bonds agreement form, before you sign.

For more information on the responsibilities you’ll take on when you sign for Newport Beach bail bonds call our office now at 888-224-5266.
