One of the biggest concerns people often have when it comes to Martinez Jail bail bonds is cost.
When you hire a Contra Costa bondsman you’ll only need to pay 10% of the defendant’s full bail amount but this can often mean needing to come up with thousands of dollars on a moment’s notice.
If you don’t have immediate access to to that kind of money you’ll want to work with a local bail bonds company that can help you with a monthly payment plan.
Be sure to ask lots of questions before you sign any paperwork. If the agent you’re speaking with is offering you a very low down payment, ask if you’ll need to have the full balance paid off within a year. You’ll also want to find out if you need to make payments on a weekly or monthly basis.
Do they charge interest or finance fees? Will you need to pay for an application fee? How long is your repayment term? What will you need to qualify on your own or will you need to provide other cosigners?
