Bail bonds can seem very complicated at first due to their multiple nuances. But knowing your payment options is crucial to making the correct choice when figuring out how to pay your bail bond. Here are a few bail bond payment options.
Financing your bail, or paying it piece by piece, is only an option if you live in California. Otherwise, your bail bond options are going to vary.
The bail itself will vary in amount as well. The more severe the crime, the higher the bail will be. Some crimes don’t even require bail and the defendant will have to wait in jail for their court date.
To qualify for bail bond payments, you must also be employed in California and your gross income must be more or equal to the total bail amount. You cannot qualify for bail bond payments for federal, prostitution, drug, or grand theft charges.
If you live in California, you luckily have multiple options for paying your bail bond that other states do not. If you analyze your options carefully, you’ll not only get a good deal, but you also won’t have to wait in jail until your court hearing. For more information, check out the video on this page.
