Every now and then we will receive a call from someone asking when the premium they paid to purchase bail bonds in San Diego will be refunded. The District Attorney decided against filing the case, they say, or the judge dropped the charges and dismissed the case. Perhaps the defendant was acquitted, or they got off with a firm slap on the wrist. These people are often surprised to learn that the premium someone pays to a bondsman in San Diego is a fee, it is not something they get back.
Everyone who writes, transacts and negotiates bail in the state of California is required to be licensed through the State Department of Insurance (DOI). In that respect you can think of a bail bond as being similar to an insurance policy. Much like the premium you pay to your auto insurance company is not refunded if you do not get into any accidents or receive any points on your license, the money you pay to a bondsman is not refunded if the defendant’s case is concluded.
At Adelante Bail Bonds we understand that you may have a number of questions about how bail bonds in San Diego work. This is why we have a licensed bail bondsman in San Diego available to assist you at any time, day or night, weekends and holidays included.
