What is a Bail Bond?
A Bail Bond is posted in the amount set and determined by the court or statute in order to secure the release of the defendant. That bond is posted by a bail agent to guarantee that an accused person will appear in court on a certain date after being released and all subsequent court dates for that said case. Bail bonds are an integral part of our right to be presumed "innocent until proven guilty" by a court of law. By helping incarcerated persons regain their freedoms while waiting to appear in court, Atlantis provides the opportunity to secure this right, while at the same time reducing the overcrowding problem in the jail system by releasing defendants who will appear when required to do so.
What Does a Bail Bond Cost?
In California, rates are regulated by the State. When the court sets the bail amount for an accused person, the bail agent must provide the court with documents indicating that the specific amount will be paid if the accused fails to appear. The bond is held by the court until the legal process results in either an acquittal, conviction, or dismissal of the pending charges. The State of California limits the fee a bonding agency can charge to no more than 10% of the total amount of the bond.

What is a "1275 Hold"?
In some cases, frequently involving felony drug charges, the District Attorney may have concerns about where the accused person gets their money. If the District Attorney feels that the accused may not have access to a source of legitimate funds, as specified in California penal code section 1275, bail can be denied until proof is shown to the court that the funds are from a legitimate source. At Atlantis Bail Bonds, we are specialists in the complicated process of supplying proof to the court that the funds in question are legitimate and therefore the accused should be released on bail.

Which Offences are Considered "Bailable"?
California allows bail for most criminal offences. A felony charge will usually require that the defendant post bail.

The eighth amendment of the U.S. Constitution prohibits imposing excessive bail. Therefore most cases have a bail set except certain examples such as murder or cases that threaten public safety.
