Not everyone can make their New York bail. It doesn’t matter where you live in the state, the bail is likely to be set fairly high, particularly if you are considered to be a high flight risk. In cases like this, you need a little help with your bail. New York offers a few options when it comes to bail bonds. New York agents are usually available day and night, so it doesn’t matter when you are arrested, they can begin working on getting you out as fast as possible.
While some people are able to turn to their friends or family for help in paying off the bail, money that will be returned once they have appeared at all required court dates, not everyone is that lucky. If you find that you don’t have the money and can’t borrow it, then the next best thing is to turn to bail options. New York, like other states, sets the fees at 10% or 15% of the total bail amount. That means no bondsman can charge more than that and those two percentages depend on whether the case is a federal or state one.
