How much is a bail bond?The amount you pay to have the defendant released in North Carolina is fifteen percent of the bail amount. This fee is set and regulated by the North Carolina and the North Carolina Department of Insurance. For example, if the bond amount is $1,000.00, then you can expect to pay $150.00. If the bond is $5,000.00, then it would cost $750.00, and so on. Even though fifteen percent is the maximum amount you can be charged, at the bondsman’s discretion you may be charged a cheaper rate. Factors usually include, but are not limited to, the defendant’s criminal history, the amount of the bond, and the strength of the co-signer on the bond, to name a few. This premium is non-refundable and is the cost for Carolina Bail Group, LLC providing you with Bail Bonding Services and thereby getting the Defendant released from custody.
