Clearwater, FL, January 19, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- 49th Street Bail Bonds located at 12211 49th Street North, Suite #2 in Clearwater, Florida 33762 advises defendants on how to estimate the bail bond fees.
“The bail bond schedule will vary from state to state. In Florida if a defendant uses a bail bondsman they will pay 10% on every bond over $1,000.00. For each bond set below $1,000.00 the defendant will pay a flat fee of $100.00 per bond. This is where defendants and their families get confused. Often times they look at the total bond set by the court and they start calculating their costs to bond out of jail. Each charge is a separate bond so if the defendant has four charges this would be four separate bonds. We explain this to people but there is always confusion. We refer people to our website as we have a pretty detailed page that talks more about the bail process, I encourage people to visit: http://49thstreetbailbonds.com/how-does-the-bail-process-work/ this will give more insight into the fees and how bail bonds works. One note of caution if the bail is set for what is called a 'cash only bond' then defendants cannot use a bail bondsman to get out of jail, they must come up with the cash,” explains Joe VonWaldner, bail bondsman and owner of 49th Street Bail Bonds.
The bond fees vary from state to state and is set to keep bail bonds offices from undercutting each other. According to the Professional Bail Agents of the United States, bail agents are licensed by the Department of Insurance. Most bail bondsmen are appointed by an insurance company to write bail bonds unless they are independently wealthy and live in a state that allows Professional Bail Bondsmen.
“We highly recommend defendants seek an experienced and licensed bail bondsman to bond them out of jail. With the help of a bail bonds office the person arrested and their family will be kept abreast of court appearances and paperwork. The court system can be challenging to understand. I have been in the bail bonds business for over 31 years in the state of Florida. We really go the extra mile to guide our clients. It can be both a confusing and troubling time for most,” adds VonWaldner.
