Miami Bail Bonds Costs

    • In Miami, the average bail bond cost is 10% of the total amount of the bond. So if the cost of the bail was set at $10,000, you would have to pay a Miami bail bondsman $1,000. If the defendant was arrested on a Federal charge, you can expect to pay a higher cost, usually 15%.

      If the defendant was arrested on an Immigration charge, then you can expect to pay from 15% to 20% of the bail cost. The cost of the Miami bail is usually ten percent of the overall cost of the bail. It can be paid in cash, personal check or in most cases through credit cards. Other options are also available such giving up collateral in the form of a lien can that can be placed against a home. Your Miami bail bondsman will determine with you how exactly the bond can be paid.

      Once this is done, the bail bondsman will contact the Miami jail and arrange for the person to get out of jail. This can take any place from 1 hour to 24 hours. The bail bondsman will be able to help the person throughout their court appearances but in the event that they do not show up for their court date, he is legally allowed to pursue the defendant and bring them to justice.
