There are times when a person is arrested and bailed out before they even see the inside of a jail cell.
There are also times when it takes forever to complete the bail process.
There are a few reasons why the bail process doesn’t always move as quickly as you’d like.
The biggest thing that slows down the bail process is if bail is set during the booking process or if you have to appear in a bail hearing. The hearing slows everything down because it has to be worked into the daily schedule, lawyers have to put together their arguments, and the judge has to consider an appropriate bail amount and if there will be strings attached. The good news is that while the bail hearing slows the process down, the delay usually only lasts a couple of days.
Another thing that slows the bail process down happens on your end. If you have access to the money required, you can bail yourself out quite quickly. If you don’t have enough money, you’ll have to go through a California bail bond company which adds an extra step to the process.

Once you’ve settled on a bail bond company that serves your needs, the bail process picks up speed. First, we collect some information about you which includes:
✦ Your legal name
✦ Your birthdate
✦ Your address
✦ What jail your at
✦ How much bail is required
Once we have this information, it’s time to talk about payment. We charge a 10% fee. In some cases, we do offer a 20% discount. We also have a reputation for being a California bail bonds business that offers low bail payments and zero-interest payments. We are more than happy to customize a program that works for you.
Once we’ve collected our fee, the only thing left to do is to wait for the court to process the paperwork.
