Personal Attention & Trust

Our goal is to be the best Orange County Bonds agency in the business. By remaining a family owned and operated bail agency, it allows us to develop trust and personal relationships with our clients. Our clients will never be treated as a number or statistic. We pride ourselves on giving each and every client the personal attention and service they deserve and pay for.

Posting bail can be a traumatic experience for most people. What sets Binder’s Bail Bonds apart from the others is our people and the caring personal attention they give. You see, it’s not a matter of who charges the least. Every bail agency in California charges the same rate, 10% of the bail amount (bail agencies call this the premium). It’s a standard fee set by the California licensed insurance companies. What the consumer is really paying for is service. We at Binder’s Bail Bonds are confident we provide the best bail bond services in the business.

How does bail work?

When an individual is arrested for a crime, typically that person will be taken to a local law enforcement station for booking, prior to incarceration in a station lock-up or county jail. Once arrested and booked, the defendant has several options for release pending the conclusion of his or her case. Bail is designed to guarantee the appearance of a defendant in court at the time the judge directs.

What are the release options if someone is arrested?

There are five basic release options available. The five options are:

Cash Bail - Cash bail means a person must give the court the total amount of the bail in cash. The cash will be held by the court until the defendant appears to all of his/her court cases and the case is concluded. Full cash bonds provide a powerful incentive for the defendant to appear in court. If the defendant appears for all of his/her scheduled court appearances, the cash bail should be returned in full.

Surety Bond: An alternative to cash bail is a surety bond. This process involves a contractual undertaking guaranteed by an admitted insurance company having adequate assets to satisfy the face value of the bond. The bail agent guarantees to the court that they ill pay the bond forfeiture if a defendant fails to appear for their scheduled court appearances. The bail agent’s guarantee is made through a surety company and/or by pledging property owned by the bail agent.

For this service, the defendant is charged a premium (typically 10% of the bail amount in California). For example, if the bail amount in $10,000.00, the premium charged is $1,000.00. Prior to the posting of the surety bond, the defendant, friend or relative must contact a licensed bail agent. Binder’s Bail Bonds can be contacted toll-free at 1-800-957-2245. Once a bail agent is contacted, an interview or appointment will be immediately scheduled.

By involving the family and friends of a defendant, as well as through the acceptance of collateral, the bail agent can be reasonably assured that the defendant released on a surety bond will appear to all of his/her court appearances. After this procedure is completed, the bail agent will post a bond for the full bail amount, financially guaranteeing the defendant’s to court as scheduled. With money on the line, the bail agent has a financial interest in supervising bailees, and ensuring that they appear in court each end every time the court orders them to appear. If the defendant does not appear in court (skips), the bail agent has time and the financial incentive to find the defendant and bring him/her to court.

Property Bond: In rare cases an individual may be released by posting a property bond with the court. With a property bond, the court records a lien on the property to secure the bail amount. If the defendant fails to appear in court as scheduled, the court may foreclose on the property to obtain the forfeited bail amount.

Release on Own Recognizance (O.R.): Another method of release, pending trial, is through a county or law enforcement administered pre-trial release program. Usually, the employees of these programs interview defendants in custody and make recommendations to the court regarding the release of these individuals on their own recognizance (i.e., without any financial security to insure the defendant’s return). The interview process is often conducted over the telephone, usually with little inquiry into the defendant’s background. The interview attempts to determine whether the detainee is likely to appear in court. There is usually no verification of information provided by the defendant. Since no money, property or bond is to secure the defendant’s appearance in court, he/she faces no personal economic hardship from the conscious decision not to appear in court.

Release on Citation (Cite Out): This procedure involves the issuance of a citation by the arresting officer to the arrestee, informing the arrestee that he/she must appear in court at an appointed court date.

The "Cite Out" usually occurs immediately after an individual is arrested. As a consequence of the failure to follow complete booking procedures, the true identity and background of most individuals released on citation is never established. This results in the release of numerous arrestees who may have outstanding bench warrants pending or who may present a significant danger to society. Accordingly, in those cases involving "Cite Outs", the arrestee may never be placed in custody. Like the Own Recognizance (O.R.) release, the defendant’s appearance in court depends exclusively on the integrity of the defendant voluntarily returning to court as ordered by the court.

How much does a bail bond (surety bond) cost?

In California, the bail premium (fee) is typically 10% of the full bail amount. For example, if the bail amount is $10,000.00, the premium charged is $1,000.00.

How much of the premium will I get back?

Typically the 10% premium is fully earned once the bail bond is posted with a jail or court. That is how bail agents and their surety companies make their money and pay their bills.

What is collateral?

Collateral is anything of value used to financially secure a bail bond.

What can be used as collateral?

Some examples of collateral include houses, cars, boats, jewelry, electronic equipment (you get the idea).
