F.A.Q.

  • 1.Everything you every wanted to know about bail.
  • What does a bail company do?
    03-04-2015

    For a fee (also called the premium) we get a person out jail, and guarantee to the court that we will make sure that the person appears before the court at the proper time.

  • What does a bond cost?
    03-04-2015

    In the state of Nevada the fee for a bail bond is set by NRS 697.300(a), which states “The rates must be 15 percent of the amount of the bond or $50, whichever is greater. Plus a $50 court fee. So if your bail was $1,000 then we would charge $200 to write the bond.

  • What is collateral?
    03-04-2015

    Collateral is something that secures the bond. It could be cash, property, a vehicle title or anything else that is equal to the bail amount. Collateral is returned to you once the court exonerates the bond (once the Judge says guilty or innocent).

  • Is collateral necessary to get out of jail?
    03-04-2015

    It depends, for a large bail we usually require some form of collateral. We are very flexible, and are more than willing to work with you to find an arrangement that works for everyone. Call us if you have any questions.

  • If the judge says that I am innocent will I get my money back?
    03-04-2015

    The premium for the bond is non-refundable for any reason (sorry it's the law). The 15% fee covers our cost of doing business, and feeds our bondsmen (and bondwomen). Any and all collateral you gave us does get returned to you, it doesn't matter if the judge says innocent or guilty.

  • Do you accept credit cards for a bail bond?
    03-04-2015

    Yes we do. All the major ones and some of the minor ones, but no Diners Club (who in the hell is using Diners Club?).

  • Do you accept checks for a bail bond?
    03-04-2015

    For most people yes we do. However, if you were arrested for issuing forged checks then no we will not take a check from you.

  • Are you willing to trade or barter for the cost of the bond?
    03-04-2015

    Only if it is something really cool. We mean really really cool, like moon rocks or something, and it is worth at least 15% of your bail.

  • I’m going to Burning Man this year. If I get arrested will you bail me out?
    03-04-2015

    Hell yes! For the Burning Man week we setup a temporary office directly across from the Pershing County jail (the jail they take you to if you get arrested at Burning Man). You have never truly lived until you bail a guy out of jail who is wearing nothing but body paint and thigh-high socks at 3 AM.
