Federal Bail Bonds vs. Criminal Bail Bonds
Imperial County federal bail bonds are similar to criminal bonds in that they both allow for a defendant to be released from jail pending trial. There are two significant differences.
- Federal Bail Bonds Cost: The California State Department of Insurance oversees bail bonds companies and they set the rate at which bondsman are permitted to charge their customers. For California criminal bonds, that cost is 10% of the total amount of a defendant’s bail. For federal bail bonds, the cost has been set at 15%. Federal bonds require approval of a judge and oftentimes have a greater associated risk.
- Federal Bail Bonds Require Collateral: Although most of our Imperial County clients are relieved to learn they are eligible for no-collateral bonds, those needing federal bail bonds will need to post collateral in order to move forward with the process.
