Bail consists of a contract of payment in exchange for the release of someone arrested for a crime, or arrested for a crime they are accused of committing. When someone is arrested and booked for a crime, they have different options to help them get released from jail before their case is over:
To get a La Mirada Surety Bond, you need to contact a local bail bond agent and have them make arrangements for a bond to be posted for you in the specific amount of your bail. This includes signing a contract and putting up collateral as security for the La Mirada bail bond. This is how our La Mirada Bail Bond Agent can help.
A Cash Bond entails paying the entire amount of the bail in a cashier’s check, personal check or money order, and has to be delivered to the exact jail or detention center where the defendant is being held.
In this case, the court holds real property as collateral and it acts as security and as a condition of the release of the defendant. The Court Magistrate usually needs to approve this bail option, and requires a disclosure of the full property profile and sometimes a full appraisal is necessary too. Most states do not offer this option, and can take a lot of time.
To be released on your own recognizance, this is an option that is generally offered to defendants who were arrested for a non-violent offense, or that have no prior criminal record. This is offered to defendants that the court deems to be a lower risk of causing harm to the public once released. The defendant does not need to post a bond to be released from custody.
Criminal Bail Bonds
The court or judge will set the bail amount, and that is the amount the defendant needs to post to be released from jail. To be released from the detention center, the defendant, their family, or whoever posts the bail is responsible for the amount the court deems for release. In this scenario, a $50,000 Bail Bond will cost the defendant, family member or whoever posts bail, $5,000. When the court sets the bail amount, to post bail you need to pay a 10% premium rate, which the state insurance commission has established, not the bail bondsman. When your bail is posted, that makes the 10% rate non-refundable and the defendant is released from the detention facility. This system of bail helps to insure that the defendant will appear in court at the assigned times given to them by the judge.
More often than not, a defendant is released from custody via a posting of their bond by a licensed La Mirada Bail Bond Agent. In this process, an Insurance or Surety Company that has the assets to back up the bond, guarantees the total value of the bond, and the defendant enters into a contract to acquire this. The La Mirada Bail Bondsman now becomes responsible to pay the Surety Company for losses and costs if the defendant misses any scheduled court appearances.

Notice To Indemnitor
You are becoming financially responsible, and an Indemnitor for the value of the bail bond when you sign the bail agreement. When you are an Indemnitor, you become financially responsible for the court appearances by the defendant, and responsible for all of the court appearances ordered by the judge. As an Indemnitor, the financial responsibility of paying any court costs stemming from a non-appearance become yours, including exoneration, reinstatement or forfeiture of the bond. If it is necessary for the defendant is to be apprehended and returned to the court, any and all expenses are your responsibility, up to the full penal amount.
If such a forfeiture occurs, and the matter is not reinstated within the time allowed by law, or if the defendant is not surrendered back to the court by the time allowed by law, you will be required to pay any expenses, unpaid premiums, and the full penal amount of the forfeited bond, or bonds. As an Indemnitor and holding the financial and legal responsibility, you have the right to request this agency to apprehend the defendant and surrender him back to the court at the time you do not wish to continue to assume the legal and financial obligation that comes with this.
Your best judgment should be used when bailing someone out of jail, and should feel completely comfortable with the responsibilities associated with helping someone with that. Taking the emotion out of the equation, if you feel secure that the defendant will cooperate fully with the court, then you should also feel secure in calling us today.
