There are times when people will call our office asking when their Maguire jail bail bonds premium will be refunded. Perhaps the District Attorney did not file a case or the judge found the defendant not guilty. If the defendant’s case is over, and they did everything the court asked them to do, when will Maguire jail bail bonds money be returned?
Most people do not realize the fee they pay to a bondsman is just that, a fee. It is not something they will get back.
The California bail industry is regulated by the state Department of Insurance (DOI). That having been said, you can think of Maguire jail bail bonds as being similar to an insurance policy. Instead of insuring an item against damage or theft bail bonds insure the behavior of the defendant, namely, that this person will go to court. Much like car insurance companies do not refund your premium if you do not get into any accidents, bail bonds companies to not refund your premium if the defendant handles their case.
