Bail Bond Fees
The fee a bail bondsman can charge is set per Florida Statute 648.33. In the state of Florida, the set bond rate is 10% of the bail or $100 whichever one is greater. For example, if someone has a DUI bail of $5,000, then the bail bond fee would cost $500.
The rate for bail bonds are set into the state law. This means the bail bond agency cannot reduce the rate, if an agency offers a reduction on the set state rate, they are breaking the law and if you accept the reduced rate, you may have comprised the release of the person you are posting bond for.
