Can I Get My 10% Back That I Paid The Bail Bondsman?
No. This fee is non-refundable. It is the premium paid for a bail bonds company to do the work and take the risk to post your bail bond. If you think of it like a car insurance policy, you pay a premium to protect yourself in case of an accident. Even if you don’t get into an accident, you do not get that money back. A bail bondsman is the insurance that you will go back to court.
Also, the premium could be higher than 10%. It is in your best interest to call around to different bail bond companies before you make a decision to find your best price. Remember that a cheaper bail bondsman does not necessarily make him the better bail bondsman. Research is key!
