Los Angeles County Bail Bonds Process

The most common form of initial contact with a Los Angeles Bail Bonds Company or Bail Bondsman is through a phone call from either a family member or the inmate themselves. Inmates at the Los Angeles County Jail or Men's Central Jail are allowed to make collect calls from their cells.  Initially the Los Angeles Bail Bonds Company or Bail Bondsman will gather basic information such as name and contact numbers for possible cosigners for the Bail Bond agreement.  One of our Licensed Bail Bonds Agents will ask a number of questions to evaluate the risk of having the inmate released on a Bail Bond.  Every Bond is evaluated on a case by case basis. Questions can include the defendants past criminal record, employment and residence history for both the inmate and the cosigner/s.  This is a Bail industry standard, so expect this regardless of what Bail Bonds Company or Bail Bondsman you use.  Once the Bail Bond is approved, the client will be asked to sign Bail Bond documentation that can also be completed via fax or email.  Once the paperwork is completed, our Licensed Bail Bonds Agent will take the necessary paperwork to the Los Angeles County Jail to "post the Bail Bond". The entire Bail Bond Process in Los Angeles County Jail or Men's Central Jail can take approximately 8 - 12 hours due to its very large inmate capacity. 

What Will be the Bail Bond Cost?

California Bail Law mandates that the Bail Bond fee charged is 10% of the total Bail Amount. (for example, the total Bail Amount is $10,000, your cost should be 10% which is $1,000.) There are a few exceptions where Bail Bond Companies are allowed to charge a discounted rate of 8% of the total Bail Bond Amount.  These exceptions include:

  • Clients that are represented by a Private Attorney
  • Active Union Members
  • Active Military personnel & Veterans
  • AARP Members

Be careful of anyone offering a lower amount, for paying anything less for a Bail Bond is illegal, and can get your loved one back in custody and  leave you out of your money! Do you really want to deal with a Bail Bonds Company or Bail Bondsman that is willing to break the law? There are many legal alternatives.  We provide 0% interest financing, with affordable plans that fit all budgets.

Options for Release

A Bail Bond is not the only option for release from the Los Angeles County Jail or Men's Central Jail. There are several options for the release of an inmate. These options include:

  • Bail Bond - A written promise signed by a defendant or a surety (one who promises to act in place of another) to pay an amount fixed by a court should the defendant named in the document fail to appear in court for the designated criminal proceeding at the date and time specified.

  • Cash Bail - Requires payment of the full Bail Amount. The inmate will be released if he/she is clear for Bail, and will be reimbursed once he/she has appeared to all required court dates. This is a good alternative for those who have a very minimal Bail Amount. Cash Bail can be posted for large amounts as long as the payee is able to source the money and willing to have the money tied up for the long periods of time.  Money is sourced to ensure that it wasn't obtained through illegal means.

  • Property Bonds- As the name indicates, this option involves real estate. The process can take several weeks and is similar to a real estate transaction. The property must have at least 150% of the Bail Amount in equity.  There are fees involved, check with your local authorities for specific fees.  With this option, the court can foreclose the property if the defendant fails to appear to all mandated court dates.

  • "CITE OUT"- This is when a person is arrested, then released after being issued a citation that states the date he/she must return to court.  Very common for traffic violations and minor infractions. If the defendant fails to appear in court, the defendant will most likely be issued a warrant.

  • Own Recognizance (O.R.) - Only a judge can grant a defendant to be released on "O.R.".  The    defendant is released with a written promise that he / she will attend all required court dates. There are several factors that a judge usually takes into consideration when releasing a inmate on O.R. These factors include the severity of the crime, the individuals criminal history, current employment, ties with family/local community, and the overall likeliness that the individual will   flee. O.R. is not guaranteed even if the defendant satisfies all of these factors.
