Las Vegas Domestic Battery Bail Bonds
If you or someone you love have recently been arrested in Nevada on charges of domestic battery, it is imperative to get out of jail as quickly as possible, not only to avoid the unpleasantness and potential dangers of incarceration, but also to be free to search for a top defense attorney who can help you win your case.
Unless and until you post bail, you could be behind bars for days awaiting your arraignment, and in the vast majority of cases, the only viable way to get out of jail fast is to rely on a professional bail bondsman. GodFather Bail Bonds are the most trusted service throughout Las Vegas and the entire state of Nevada. We offer quick bail, a knowledgeable staff, unbeatable pricing and payment plans to those who qualify, and the ability to bail out anytime day or night 365 days a year.
What Is a Bail Bond Service?
A bail bond service facilitates the posting of a security bond, known as a bail bond, with the court for the full amount of the bail. In Las Vegas and throughout Nevada, state law mandates that bail bondsmen charge a premium of 15% of the full bail. To charge either more or less is illegal, and this fee is non-refundable since it is how bail bondsmen make their living.
It is true that you can post a cash bond or a property bond, but few have the cash on hand to post the full bail with the court . And a property bond risks the equity in your property and makes you wait longer in jail while it is being prepared and verified.
A bail bond makes it affordable for the average person to post bail and get out of jail. The arresting officer may have told you that you will only be behind bars for 12 hours, but that is just the minimum time in jail for those arrested on domestic battery charges. In reality, it could be days unless you are bailed out.
How High Is Bail for Domestic Battery?
Unless there are aggravating factors or it is a repeat offense, domestic battery in Las Vegas will normally be charged as a misdemeanor. But domestic battery does not carry the low $1,000 bail that the Clark County Standard Bail Schedule places on many misdemeanors.
Instead, you will likely see your bail set at $3,000. Thus, the bail bond fee would be $450.
If, however, one is arrested on 2nd offense for domestic battery, the standard bail is set at $5,000, making the bail bond premium $750.
Nevada's domestic violence laws are stricter than in most other states, and since 1984, police no longer have to actually witness a misdemeanor take place (including domestic battery, which is a form of simple assault and battery) in order to make an arrest. All of this adds up to more domestic battery arrests.
