If you find the whole idea of California bail confusing, you’re not alone. Many people don’t fully understand exactly how bail in California works. The good news is that every single person connected to Ceres Bail Bonds has a solid working knowledge of California’s bail bond program and will happily explain it.
One of the questions we frequently get asked is what happens to the bail if the charges are dropped?
The answer is surprisingly simple. If all the charges are dropped after you are released from jail, the money reverts back to whoever posted it.
If you were lucky enough to bail yourself out, you’ll get every single penny back. If a friend posted the bail for you, they’ll get the money back. If we posted your bail, we’ll get our money back, minus the 10% which serves as our fee for helping you out.
The good news is that you don’t have to play any guessing games. The amount of what happens if the charges are dropped or if you’re convicted, are clearly laid out in the contract you sign.
The other bit of good news is that you don’t have to worry about anything about your case. As soon as the charges are dropped, you can put the whole situation behind you while we contact the courts for the reimbursement. The only way you’ll have to become involved is if you provided us with collateral, which we’ll return as soon as the charges are dropped.
