Frequently Asked Questions

We get it - you probably have plenty of questions about this process. The good news is, Mr. Bail Bonds & Co. wants to support and educate wherever possible. If you're looking for answers to basic questions on bail bonds, check out these frequently asked questions.

How much will my bond cost?

When you hire a bail bondsman, you agree to pay a percentage of the total bail amount for the privilege of the bondsman covering the rest. That percentage is usually 10 percent in Oklahoma, but can vary up and down depending on flight risk, collateral and other factors.

It’s not a cookie cutter business—it’s very personal for each situation, and we’ll tell you up front and write into the contract anything that you need to know. We evaluate every case on an individual basis and are always willing to make a deal if the situation calls for it.

What is collateral?

Collateral is an instrument used to secure a bond. It can be a variety of things so long as they have value—real estate, vehicles, appraised jewelry, purses, services like plumbing or air conditioning, you name it.

Collateral is NOT always required for a bond, but in some cases it may provide a little more freedom for someone who might want to go out of state, a flight risk or in general any higher risk bond.

Anything signed over as collateral passes completely into possession of the bail bondsman until such time as the bond payment is taken care of.

How much is collateral?

It depends on the situation. Every bond is different, and we’ll evaluate that on a case-by-case basis.

Can you service my bond?

In most cases inside Oklahoma County, yes. We do limited work in Canadian County and the rest of the state as well. But we only service the Oklahoma City jail.
