How much does a bond cost?
In the State of Florida the simple answer is 10%. Per Florida statute the most that any bail bondsman can charge is 10% of each bond amount, or a minimum of $100 for any bond below $1000. That means that whomever you choose for an Orlando Area Bail Bondman, the price is going to be the same, no matter what. That’s why it’s important to choose your bail bondsman based on their reputation and business practices, and not the price. Allstar and Magic Bail Bonds are family owned Bail Bond Company and have been in business for over 30 years. We treat you like family. “We Get You Out, We Get You Home”, is not just a slogan, it’s the basis for how we do business. It’s obvious that our clients find themselves in a less than desirable situation; and whether it’s the defendant themselves, or a loved one who is left to try to begin the bond process; it’s usually filled with anxiety and a little confusion. We here at Allstar and Magic Bail Bonds do our best to provide simple, easy instructions on how the process works, and provide guidance to all those involved. So remember, if you find yourself in need of a reputable Bail Bondman, just because they all charge the same, doesn’t mean they will treat you the same.

Do I need collateral?
This is a question that comes up quite often in the Bail Bond industry. Collateral is NOT required to begin the Bail Bond Process, but often collateral may be required when setting up payment options. This is an option that may be discussed with one of our licensed and registered bail agents when beginning the bail bond process.
How long does the Bail Bond Process Take?
The actually process from the time you reach out to our office and the time your loved one is released can vary greatly. Unfortunately there is no set amount of time that it takes, as each arrest and processing situation is different for each defendant. However, we can begin the process of getting your friend or loved one out and home immediately from the time you give us a call, or walk into our office. And in some circumstances all it takes to get the process started is your signature. We at AllStar and Magic bail bonds are here to answer your questions 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
