29 Jul What Are Your Options When Paying the Bail Bond Fee?
A bail bond is a great option when you’re arrested and don’t have enough money to cover your own bail. When you decide to have Happy’s Bail Bonds in Bakersfield provide you with a bail bond, you only have to pay us 10% of the bail. We cover the rest. It’s a sweet setup.
Deciding that you should go the bail bond route is one thing. Knowing how you’re going to cover the 10% fee is another.
Do You Qualify for our 20% Bail Bond Discount?
The first thing you need to do is decide if you qualify for the 20% discount we offer some clients. The qualifications are pretty simple. We offer the following people, no matter what crime they’ve been charged with, a 20% bail bond discount;
• Individuals who are using a private defense attorney rather than a public defender
• AARP members
If you meet one of these requirements, you can automatically deduct 20% of the fee you owe us.
Credit Card Payment
We are perfectly happy to accept a credit card payment from you. This is especially helpful when you don’t want to come to our offices to deliver a check. Paying your bail bond fee with a credit card isn’t any different than paying for anything else you order online. You simply fill out the online form and submit your credit or debit card. Once the transaction is approved, we’ll bring your bail bond check to the courthouse.
If you have enough cash to cover the bail bond fee, we’re happy to help. Simply bring us the cash. We’ll count it, put it in a safe place and head to the courthouse and start the bail bond process.
We do accept personal checks but if you’re paying with a check, you should know that there will be a delay before you or your loved one is bailed out of jail. We can’t start processing the bail bond until we’re positive that the check will clear which usually takes about five days. If you still want to pay with a check, you’re free to either mail it to us or you can deliver it in person.
