When trying to bail someone out of jail, it is important to know how much it will cost to get a bail bond. It would be hard to get the money together without actually knowing how much is needed. This is why one of the most popular questions we get is: How much money do I need today?
Unfortunately, this question can be difficult to answer without having any of the details. Bail bonds cost 10% of the bail they are for, so that will give you the base price. However, some people may qualify for a discount, which will reduce the cost. Plus, everybody’s payment plan is different and designed to work with their budget. That alone can drastically change how much a person will need that day to bail someone out.
In Knoxville, bail bonds cost 10% of the bail they are based on. This means, if the bail is set at $20,000, the bail bond will cost $2,000. Some clients are able to qualify for a 20% discount on the price of the bail. This would reduce the cost of the bail bond from before, down to $1,600.
