How Bails Work
Anyone committing a crime can be arrested and taken to the Police Department to be booked (fingerprints are taken and photographed). If a defendant was arrested for a serious misdemeanor or felony, it’s likely that the defendant will not be released until the defendant’s family posts bail. You’ll need to work with a bail bond agent in Claremont, CA to help with this process.
Ways To Post Bail
The amount the bail costs depends on the seriousness of the crime charged against the accused. If the defendant of his or her family decides to post a bond for the release of the defendant, there are three ways of accomplishing this:
Bail Bond – The most popular option used in Los Angeles County and San Dimas Jail. A defendant, or their family, posts the bail bond (a document given to the court by the bail bond company) to guarantee the defendant will show to all required court appearances.
Cash Bail – Cash, check, or money order has to be deposited in the full amount of the bail to the law enforcement agency holding the defendant. Once completed, the defendant is released from jail and given the date for their future court appearance.
Real Property – The defendant, or their family, may give any equity in real property to post bond. Generally, equity has to be double the value of the bail required for releasing the defendant. If court appearances are missed, the property can be forfeited.

An Affordable Option
Money can be hard to get a hold of at a whims notice; our services allow you to finance the cost of the bond.

If excellent credit scores are pulled, then money down may not be needed. Once the premium has been posted, we will work immediately to free your loved ones.
We do offer a full refund of the cost of the bond if the accused shows up for all court dates and follows the rules. However, the paid premium is non-refundable, as it covers the services of releasing the person from jail before their trial.
