No one expects they’ll suddenly need to come up with thousands of dollars to help get a loved one out of the Contra Costa County Jail.
Even the most law abiding citizens can find themselves in a place where they unexpectedly need to hire a bondsman. Sometimes this is due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time or a snap-judgement bad decision. It’s natural for a bail bonds cosigner to want to get the defendant out of jail as quickly as possible and it’s equally normal to be concerned about the cost to purchase bail bonds.
How can you get the best deal on bail bonds in California?
The first thing you should know is that the cost to hire a bondsman in Martinez is set by state law. All companies are required to charge 10%. If bail has been set at $10,000 you can expect to pay $1,000 to purchase bail bonds.
If you’re unable to pay that fee up front in full, that’s OK. Be sure to ask the bondsman about how bail bonds payment plans work and what you’ll need to do in order to qualify for a monthly payment option.
