Cash Bail or Bail Bonds? Which is Better?

When you’re arrested, you usually have the option of paying a cash bail or applying for a bail bond.

When you decide to pay a cash bail, you’re paying the entire amount of the bail yourself. Or a loved one does it for you. The benefit of paying a cash bail is that once your case reaches its conclusion, you’ll get all of that money back from the court. The only thing you have to do is make sure you show up for your court date.

A bail bond, which is also referred to as a surety bond, is a little different. To get a bail bond you have to go through a company like Santa Ana Bail Bonds. We cover the entire amount of your bail for you. In doing so, we charge a fee of 10% of that amount.

The problem many people encounter is that they simply don’t have that much cash on hand, or if they do, they won’t have enough left over for necessities like food, rent, gas, and lawyer fees. In this situation, turning to Santa Ana Bail Bonds and taking advantage of a bail bond is the best option.
