Unethical bail bond agencies often hide different fees or potential premiums when transacting bail. They also sometimes advertise bait-and-switch discounts to get your business, then approach you later for additional premium or hidden fees.
Bail Bond Professionals has No Additional Fees
Other agencies often charge these fees when Bail Bond Professionals never does!
- Annual Premiums: If your case remains active for more than a year, you're going to be charged a fee.
- Resumption of Liability: If you accidentally miss your court date and are needed to reappear, some companies charge for the Resumption of Liability letter.
- Rewrite Fees: If your first bail is exonerated and you require a second application, then many agents charge extra.
- Court Appearance Fees: Many agents charge to support you in court.
Unlike other bail bond agents, Bail Bond Professionals do not have any hidden fees, extra payments, or unfair terms with financial consequences.
The agency is completely transparent about any fees and payments you'll have to make. As a rule, we do not charge for unintentional mistakes and regularly appear in court for free.
At Bail Bond Professionals, you'll only pay a premium as per the signed agreement forms, nothing more. These are fees mandated by the California Department of Insurances.
If you are unsure or confused regarding the nature of a fee or any other parts of the agreement, we're happy to sit down and clarify any part of the bail contract. We’ll explain every legal term so that you're not caught unawares at a later date!

What Happens after an Arrest?
Once the arrest has been made, the defendant will be taken to the local jail. It is at the local city or county jail where the booking process begins.
During the booking process the following procedure takes place:
- Identity verification
- Photographs or mug shots
- Property inventory
- Formal Charges
- Bail Determination
The booking process, (aka receiving process) can take anywhere between 2 to 5 hours depending upon where they are held. Once the booking process is complete, we’re able to post the bond, and the defendant begins the release process. After bond has been posted and the release process begins, it take anywhere between 3 to 8 hours at the Orange County Jail, depending on the activity, and sometimes much longer.
If the defendant is held at one of the city jails, such as Anaheim Jail, Newport Beach Jail, Costa Mesa Jail, or Huntington Beach Jail, they’ll be released quickly after the bond has been posted.
While we are involved at the begining of the arrest process, our primary concern is making sure all court appearances are made. The defendant must be present at every scheduled court hearing so as to uphold their obligation to the court. If not, the bond will be revoked by the court and a warrant will be issued for their arrest.
Once the bond is revoked, more than likely an arrest warrant with the defendant.
Orange County Bail Schedule?
There is a set amount of bail for every criminal charge in Orange County. A “Uniform Bail Schedule” is created each year which is used by police and Sheriffs use to set bail for those arrested. Contact us ASAP to help you figure out if bail has set for your loved one.
Posting cash bail is generally reserved for smaller bail amounts such as $1,000 or less, however, it is always an option to bypass purchasing a bail bond and deposit the full cash amount yourself directly to the jail. It requires a cashiers check made out to the “Orange County Sheriff’s Dept.” and will only be accepted during normal banking hours. Understand though that the cash you give to the jail may be held until the case is fully resolved, which could be many months or even years. Posting a bail bond often times is quicker, safer, and often times a better finance option.
More serious charges like assault cans be classified either as misdemeanors or felonies. Each of these classifications has a series of specific classes (A, B, C, or D). Depending on the severity of the crime, it gets classified as a misdemeanor or felony, which is then given a classification.
Some of the most common charges in the profession include:
- Domestic Violence
- Driving Under The Influence
- Possession of Stolen Property
- Possession of Concealed Weapons
- Possession of Drugs or Other Paraphernalia
- Sexual Offenses
- Armed Robbery
- Terrorist Activity
This is not an exhaustive list of charges. All of the charges mentioned are further divided into levels of severity. That level of severity determines whether the defendant will be charged with a misdemeanor or felony.
If you're curious about the kind of charges and bail bond amount that these different charges hold, then give us a call!
Most of these crimes have a predetermined amount of bail required which is set in the orange county bail schedule.
If the defendant is charged with multiple offenses, there will arraignment hearing in front of the judge.
During the arraignment, a judge has the right to revoke the bond despite the 8th Amendment of the Constitution if circumstances warrant the defendants surrender. However, this is only for extenuating circumstances.
If the judge believes that the defendant is a flight risk or a danger to society or themselves then bail can be revoked.
