One concern people have when they begin calling around to San Jose bail bonds companies is that they will be required to post collateral in order to get a friend or family member out of jail. You may be surprised to learn this is not always the case. Some bondsmen always require it, but others may only request it under certain circumstances.
If you are required to post collateral the common industry standard is 150%. This means if the defendant’s bail has been set at $20,000 you may be asked to post $30,000 in collateral in order to secure the bond. As long as they make all of their necessary court appearances that item will be returned to the person who posted it at the conclusion of the case.
Other companies mostly work with signature bonds. These are known as no collateral bail bonds in which the signature of the person who signs the contract is assurance enough the defendant will meet their legal obligations. If the defendant’s bail has been set very high, or if they are considered to be a flight risk, these companies may request collateral be posted.
