The Bail Bond Process

Learn how the bail bond process works so you can be prepared to help your loved one get out of jail quickly.


Booking occurs at a local law enforcement facility when an individual is arrested and brought in for processing. It consists of a background and outstanding warrant check, fingerprinting, and inputting the defendant's information into the system. While in jail, the individual will not be able to access any personal belongings like a cell phone or credit cards. The booking facility will also determine the amount of your bond (See the bail schedules for Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, San Diego County and Ventura County posted on this site).In California, the bail amount is not determined by the likelihood of the defendants appearance in court, however prior arrests or convictions will be factored in. The primary purpose of bail in California is to ensure the public’s safety.

Contact Us

Contact us for bail in California and nationwide. Our job as licensed bail agents is to help organize the bond requirements needed for the case. As bail agents, we are appointed representatives of licensed surety insurance companies. We help develop an option for release from custody.

Release Options

If the individual arrested cannot post bail, s/he may be held until the case is tried. Other than that, there are four basic ways to be released from jail after an arrest, being charged and going through the booking process.

  • Cash Bail: This is where the total amount of the bail is put up. If it is $5,000, then $5,000 needs to be provided to the court in cash. If the defendant appears for all of the court dates, that money will be refunded.
  • Release on Own Recognizance (O.R.): If the alleged perpetrator is low risk, has no criminal record or otherwise shows s/he will make the court appearances and poses no danger to public safety, this type of release may be offered.
  • Release on Citation (Cite Out): This is what most people are familiar with. It is when a citation like a traffic ticket is issued. That means that the individual is never brought into custody but is expected to voluntarily show up in court.
  • Posting a bail bond is the fourth way to be released.

    Bail Bond

    This involves a contract with Crista's Bail Bonds in Fullerton, CA that will financially guarantee, with a bond, that the defendant will appear for all his/her court appearances. If the defendant does not show up, the bond will be forfeited to the court. The defendant will be charged a 7% to 10% (qualifications for reduce rate apply) premium for this service. In addition, the indemnitor will have to pay any expenses incurred by the transaction, provide the required collateral (if any requested), and keep Crista's Bail Bond's advised of any changes in employment, address, or telephone numbers.

    Bond Posting

    A licensed agent from Crista's Bail Bonds will complete the necessary paperwork and post the bail bond at the location of the detainee, where he/she will be released.


    The times vary greatly by facility but in general, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 12 hours to be released on bail after posting your bail bond. Typically, the municipal jails will not take as long.

    • County Jails: When a bond is posted at a county jail it can take between 4-12 hours before release of the individual after the bond has been posted.
    • City Jails: When a bond is posted at a city jail and after the individual’s fingerprints have been verified, it can take 30 min. to 1 hour for release after the bond has been posted. Typically, the City jails will not take as long as the County jails.
