The Bail Process
If you have a friend or family member who has been arrested, or is already in jail, feel free to call our office for bond information. Once an inmate has completed the booking process, the appropriate fees and security can be determined.
There are two parts to a Bail Bond:
The Bail Bond Fee
The bail bond fee is 10 percent of each charge, with a minimum of $100 per charge.
Bail bond fees are State regulated by the Florida Department of Financial Services and are non-negotiable. The fee can be paid by cash, check or credit card and is non-refundable once the defendant has been released from jail.
The Security/Collateral Guarentee
The Bond must by guaranteed by someone to insure that the defendant appears in court. The
Bond must by guaranteed by someone to insure that the defendant appears in court. If you or the defendant is a home owner in good standing, a signature can be used. We also take cash, credit cards, checks, jewelry, guns, guitars, and electronics of value. Collateral is fully refundable upon completion of the case, when the bonds are discharged by the court.
Once a bond is posted, it generally takes 8 to 10 hours for the defendant to be released. This delay has nothing to do with the bail agent. It is the procedure which the jail uses to process the release of an inmate.
