BAIL BOND AGENT

go back


The California Department of Insurance licenses bail bond agents. Bail bond agents are permitted to solicit, negotiate and effect undertakings of bail on behalf of any surety insurer. Bail bond agents are granted power of attorney by the court to process bail for individuals who are released from jail pending court appearance on a stipulated date. When individuals post bail, they are required to pay 10% of the bail amount established by the court. By posting bail, the individuals are promising that they will, based on their own recognizance, appear and answer to specific legal matters.
