Federal bail bonds are distinctively different from state bail bonds, even though they essentially provide the same result. The first noticeable difference is the amount of bail that a federal crime will demand. As federal crimes are considered to much more serious than that of a state crime, the bail amount set by the judge will be substantially higher than that set by the county for state bail. This in turn will result in the bail bonds fee also being more expensive than the 10% bail bond fee in California. Normally, the cost of a federal bail bond will be 15% of the total amount of the federal bail.
Due to the complexity of seeking federal bail, it is never advised to undertake the task without professional assistance. It is always highly advised to consult with a professional bail bonds company such as ours.
Another difference between state bail and federal bail is that collateral will always have to be put up to secure federal bail, and perhaps even a federal bail bond. The defendant and/or their family will need to demonstrate that they have collateral worth 150% of the full bail amount. They will also need to prove that this collateral was gained via honest means, and not through criminal activity. This is an additional hearing called a “nebbia” hearing.
