Contacting a Local Santa Clarita Bail Bondsman
When you contact a local Santa Clarita bail bondsman, it is not unusual for those with experience to ask several questions that relate to the defendant and his current situation, as well as some personal information relating to his background.
Questions such as: What is the defendant’s name? His date of birth? His citizenship? His credit status? Is he/she a California resident? Employed? A home owner in California? Questions such as these help the bondsman quickly assess the risk involved in posting the bail bond. Even more importantly, getting the answers to these questions can help lower the risk for you, the signer too.
Another great way to check out a potential bail bond company and see if you’d like to do business with them is to speak with one of their agents directly. Find out if they are willing to provide you information without a haggle or hassle.
As you speak to a bondsman, ask yourself if they act with compassion and are helpful. Do they seem knowledgeable? Are they articulate? Do they sound honest, or are they just telling you what you want to hear so they can make a fast buck? Ask them if they are licensed and how much experience he/she has.

What is a Bail Bond?
A bail bond as a binding, legal contract which assures the court that the entire bail amount will be paid should the arrestee fail to make all of their appointed court dates. Bail is set by a judge based on the County bail schedule. Bail amounts can vary from county to county.
The bail contract works both ways: It also is a legal promise made by the arrestee, the signer of the bond and the bail agency that guarantees he will meet his commitments and court appointments in exchange for his freedom.

Posting bail quickly, while the defendant is still at a smaller jail facility like Santa Clarita is the best and fastest way to have the arrestee back at home with their families, back to their jobs, and back to their daily routines. (It’s important to be aware that if they are transferred to the larger county jail, it can extend the bail process by as much as 24 hours or more).
Posting bail for them also provides more time and a better chance of securing an attorney who can professionally facilitate a favorable outcome in the arrestee’s case when they do go to court. When they appear to court wearing professional attire, opposed to an orange jumpsuit, it can help facilitate a more positive outcome.
Paying for a Santa Clarita Bail Bond
In Santa Clarita and throughout the state of California an honest bail bond agent should only charge 10 percent of the total arrestee’s bail amount. It is a non-refundable cost-of-service fee for posting a bond.
(For example, if the bail amount has been set at $20,000 dollars, a professional bail bondsman will charge $2,000 dollars). No taxes or interest should be added to the bond.
Perhaps you can’t afford to pay the entire bail amount, which can sometimes be several thousand of dollars. SCV Bail Bonds can tailor a flexible payment plan to fit any budget when the signer qualifies. Not every bail agency can provide this service, but we understand that sometimes even good people can make bad choices and we deeply believe that posting bail is a right our country’s citizens should be able to enjoy.
To pay for the bond we accept all major credit cards, such as MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover. We also accept your guaranteed personal and business checks.
Failing to Appear to Court (is generally rare)
Fortunately, situations like this can usually be resolved with one phone call to the bail company. At SCV Bail Bonds, our policy is to give our clients a friendly phone call reminders, just so they don’t forget to go to court, which is the number one reason why most court dates are missed.
