What do you charge for bail?
This depends on how much of a flight risk we believe the person to be and whether or not you have collateral to secure the bond. Our rates usually run between 10 and 15%. The maximum allowed bond fee in NC is 15% of the amount of bond set.
For example, a $1000 bond would cost $150.00.
What sets Kiss Bail Bonds apart from other bail bonding agencies in the area?
One word. SERVICE!
Missing a court date is very costly for all parties concerned.
You risk being re-arrested and having to post bail again if you fail to appear. In addition, your bond amount could possibly be doubled; meaning it will cost you roughly twice what it cost the first time around.
To help prevent this from happening, we have an automated computer program that will send out a text message the day before you are due in court to remind you of upcoming court appearances. Many people have told us how much they appreciate this service and how it has saved them from getting an FTA.
We also accept credit card payments for our bond fees and are the ONLY company in the area to do this for our customers!
How long does it take to get someone out of jail?
Pre-release paperwork can usually be completed in under 30 minutes. The time it may take the jail to process someone out depends on how busy they are, but 30 minutes to an hour is not uncommon.
Will I get my money back?
Bail bond premium (the fee you pay the bondsman) is not refundable and is fully earned upon the defendant’s release from jail.
Collateral is refundable when your case is over in the court system and is always returned provided you fulfill your obligation on the bond (show up for all court appearances).
What is collateral?
Bail collateral is offered in addition to the bail fee as security that you will go to court as required. It is like a form of credit or a loan. Collateral can come in many forms; it can be your house, jewelry or other assets.
If you are offering a lien upon your house, car or other large property item as collateral, the bail agent will typically have you place the deed or car title in their trust. If it is a smaller item such as jewelry, they will take physical possession and keep it in a secure location until the case is resolved.
