Getting arrested is shockingly expensive. Granted, the actual act is free, but as soon as you hear that cell door close, you will suddenly realize that as long as you’re locked up, you won’t be able to work, yet all of your monthly bills will quickly pile up. On top of that, now you have to worry about court fees and lawyer expenses.
The cost of getting arrested will really hit you when you go to the arraignment and learn how much bail the judge thinks you should pay. The idea behind bail is that you won’t have to sit in jail while you wait for the California judicial system to get to your case, but when you’re talking a bail of several thousand dollars, you can’t afford to get out.
The good news is that Santa Ana Bail Bonds is right here. We’re ready and willing to help you out. One of the first things we get asked is how much does a California bail bond cost. The answer is that the amount of money you’ll spend on the bail bond depends on how high the judge sets your bail during the arraignment. We charge a fee that’s 10% of the bail bond you require. That means that if you need a $5,000 bail bond, we’ll charge you $500.
Suddenly getting out of jail seems more feasible. We can make things even easier.

Is the amount still a bit more than you can afford? That’s okay. We have a zero-down, flexible payment plan that you’re going to love. We’ll work closely with you to customize a plan that works for everyone. In addition to being zero-down, the payment plan is also zero-interest, which means that even if you take advantage of the payment plan, you’ll still pay only 10% of the bail bond.
