What does Doc’s charge for bonds?
Doc’s has a minimum bond fee of around $125 for a bond of $350 set by the court. The fee on a $500 bond is around $150, for a $750 bond it’s around $175. As you can see, for the smaller bond amounts and less serious the crime the fee charged is not based on a percentage of the bail. We don’t charge as a percentage until the bond gets up into the thousands. For example, the fee on a $4,000 bond is usually $400 for a first time offender. For someone who has been arrested a number of times, the fees are going to be higher. If they’ve had a bond forfeiture in the past or have other risk factors, the prices go up. Each bond is different and carries different risks, so the prices can vary. That being said, most bail bond companies charge fees ranging from 7-15% of the bail amount depending on the specifics.
