Do You Need To Pay Bail?
If you’re wondering if you need to pay bail, the simple answer is no. Bail is an amount of money (and sometimes conditions that have to be met) that you have to pay if you wish to be released from jail while your case makes its way through the legal process.
Just because bail has been set, you don’t have to pay it. Some people opt to remain incarcerated while others would prefer to go free. The choice is yours.
Do You Need To Use A Bail Bond Company?
Some people believe that they need to use a company like Contra Costa County Bail Bonds in order to cover their bail and be released from jail. The truth is that you don’t need to. If you have enough money on your own, you can pay your own bail or have a friend or family member cover the expense. We exist to provide those who don’t have the means to cover the bail on their own with a way to be released. We use your current income to determine a payment plan, we never charge hidden fees and we offer a 20% discount to qualified clients.
How Complicated Is The Bail Bond Process?
The bail bond process is one of the simplest aspects of the judicial process. Shortly after you’ve been charged and arrested, you go before a judge who determines the amount of your bail. At this point, you have the option of paying it or the option to return to jail. If you chose not to bail yourself out right away, you still have the option of doing so at a later date.
If you contact Contra Costa County Bail Bonds and ask for our help, we require:
- A proof of residency.
- A valid state-issued identification card or driver’s license.
- A pay stub or bank statement that shows regular deposits.
