Federal Bail vs. Criminal Bonds
The Santa Clara federal bail bonds process is more complex and lengthy than the process to obtain a criminal bail bond. The defendant will not be permitted to “bail out” of jail until they appear before a judge. Federal bonds often only allow release with certain terms and conditions which can be onerous. It will be imperative to work with an expert bail bondsman who understands how the federal bail system works and what needs to be done in order to have someone get out of jail as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
Federal bail bonds cost more than criminal bonds.
Bail is a regulated industry in California and the California Department of Insurance, not individual bail bonds companies, sets the rate at which bondsmen are permitted to charge for their services. The rate for federal bail bonds is 15%. This means that if someone’s federal bail has been set at $100,000 you can expect to pay $15,000 to purchase a bail bond.
Federal bail bonds require collateral.
Federal bail bonds are considered to be riskier than criminal bail bonds and federal bail is often set a higher than a basic criminal bail. Collateral is required for all federal bonds. The collateral serves as a guarantee that the defendant will return to court when required. So long as they make all of their necessary appearances the collateral will be returned to the person who posted it at the conclusion of the case. Federal cases commonly take extended time to complete.
