Bail Bonds FAQ

How much do bondsmen charge in Virginia?

In the state of Virginia bail bond rates are set at 10% of the total amount of the bond (known as the face amount). For example, on a $1,000 bond the bond fee (or "premium") would be $100.

What information should I try to know before contacting a bondsman?

In order to speed up the bail process there is certain information that you should try to collect before calling your bondsman. Bondsmen usually like to know:

  • What is the defendant's full name?
  • Where is the person in custody? (city, county, name of jail)
  • How much is the bond? If you don't know the bond amount, providing the person's full name and the location of where they are in custody is necessary for the bondsman to confirm the bond amount.
  • Any requirements placed on the person's bond, if you are aware of them. Some bonds have requirements, such as requiring a specific person to sign as a custodian for the bond. If you are aware of these requirements, it is always preferable to let the bondsman know so that issues don't arise when attempting to post the bond.
  • Is the defendant on probation, parole, and/or were they previously out under another bond when they were most recently arrested?
  • Are you willing to co-sign for the person's release on bail? Most bonds require having a co-signer before the bondsman will agree to post bail for that person. Are you willing to be that co-signer and if not, is there another person who will co-sign? Co-signers are usually required to have a job (or own their own home) and often must show a pay-stub, so keep that in mind!
