One of the most common questions that people ask about Contra Costa bail bonds companies relates to the bondsman’s fee. They want to know if this money will be refunded once the defendant’s case is over.
First, you should know that the fees you pay to a bondsman are considered to be earned in full at the time the defendant is released from jail. These funds will not be refunded in part or in full no matter what happens with the defendant’s case.
If you have signed up for a bail bonds payment plan you will still need to continue making payments until the balance is resolved. If you stop making payments your account will be turned over to collections and the delinquency will be reported to the credit bureau, which will have a negative impact on your credit score.
