My case is over and the prosecutor decided to drop all the charges. How long will it take to get my bail bonds money back?
This is a very common question but unfortunately, our answer is always the same. The money you pay to a Santa Clara bail bonds company is non-refundable no matter what happens in court. Yes, there are times when attorneys or in some cases, even a judge will inform a defendant that they are eligible for a bail bonds refund but that is simply not how bail bonds work. The fee you pay to a bondsman is considered to be fully earned at the time a defendant is released from jail. It’s not refundable in part, or in full, no matter what happens with your case. All of this is out lined in the bail bonds agreement form that the indemnitor signed at the time they purchased your bail bonds.
