  • What percentage do you charge for a bail bond and why?The charges vary from state to state. Generally the bail bond company will charge their customers 8-15% of their total bail. If they charge more, then you should ask the reason.
  • Will you help me understand the bail bond process?When you ask this question, they should always be ready to make you understand the whole bail bond process. Being aware of the process at your end will make the process smooth and beneficial for both parties.
  • How much time will it take to get my friend (or family member) out of jail?You should discuss the exact time they will take to get your friend or family member out of the jail. The only thing a bondsman can control is their part of the release process and paperwork, but an experienced bondsman knows normal processing times.
