How Much Does A $100,000 Bail Bond Cost

How Much Does A $100,000 Bail Bond Cost?

If you have a bail of $100,000, then the cost of bonding yourself out through a bail bonds company is 10% of the total $100,000. Meaning that the bail money you owe would be $10,000.

Some bail bonds companies take payment plans or assets such as property as collateral.

Remember that bail bond companies are not government related. They are a 3rd party service providing a way to get someone out of jail until their court hearing. The money they put up front for you is a risk. So if your bail is $100,000, that means the bail bond company has to put up the $100k on your behalf, trusting that you will make the court date.

What Does Being  Held On $100,000 Bond Mean?

Being held on a $100,000 bond means that you need to pay the court $100,000 in order to be set free from jail before your court date. If you cannot pay the $100,000 dollars to the court, you must stay in jail until your court date.

Qualifying For A $100,000 Bail Bond Through A Bondsman

You don’t just go to a bondsman and get automatically qualified to sign an agreement on a $100,000 bail bond.  When bonds are this high, you will be required to show proof that you can pay the bond money back. This can be in many different ways…

  • You came highly recommended by a reliable source
  • You have property such as a car or house that is equal to $100,000 as collateral
  • You have bank statements or tax returns showing your income
  • You have the $10,000 up front and do not need a payment plan
  • You have a valid co-signer as well
  • There are no prior records showing you didn’t show up for your court date

What Happens If I Don’t Show Up For A $100,000 Bail Bond?

What happens if you sign for a bond and run? You signed a bail bond document stating that you are responsible for them. If they (or you) do not show up in court that means the money you put down on their behalf goes back to the bondsman or the court, and you do not get a refund. If you do not show up on a $100,000 bail bonds where the bondsman is responsible for the fee, you will then be hunted. Your friends, family and job will be contacted, maybe even a reward for your capture. You can learn more here.

My boyfriend has the same amount for bond if I pay 10,000 what all I have to do because I want to make sure he gets out right when I pay it or do I just pay the full amount and if so what do I bring to the bondsman

If you sign an agreement with the bonding company and pay 10% of the $100,000, which is $10,000, then the bondsman will put up the money to the court and usually, the inmate (your boyfriend) is released within 2-24 hours. Sometimes as quick as 45 minutes.

If u put up the 10 percent of 150,000,00 bond attend all court dates do u receive your money r some of it back especially if your found not guilty?

If you are putting up 10% to a bondsman, then that 10% is a non-refundable fee that the bondsman keeps. Bail bonds agencies are not government organizations, they are independent private companies that offer the service of putting up the full $150,000 to the court on your behalf. They are taking a big risk on your behalf, and the 10% is a service fee. In the contract you signed, you probably agreed to a no-refund policy. Guilty or not does not make a difference to the bondsman, the agreement was, “They loan you $150,000 and hand that to the judge, and charge you 10% of that as a fee for the loan”. They made it possible for you to get out of jail before your court date. Since the loan was already given, the fee is non-refundable. You can try reading your agreement or talking to the bondsman to see if they might let you have some of it back, but it’s not likely. Doesn’t hurt to try though.

Every state has its own specific rules and regulations or laws on bonds; we are in Kansas. You would have to contact a bail bonds company in Framingham, MA. Be careful who you are bonding; if they skip court, you are liable for the full bond amount; and if they run and hide and can’t be found, you will likely be taken to civil court and lose your home. Read the contract thoroughly.
