What are No Collateral Bail Bonds?
No collateral bail bonds refers to a type of bail bond that is not guaranteed by collateral such as real estate, cash or other type of physical property. Instead of collateral the bond company requires a indemnitor to cosign the bond using a promissory note guaranteeing to pay the full bail amount in addition to any recover fees if the defendant skips court and forfeits the bail bond.
In this brief animated video below the we cover bail bonds services available with no collateral needed.

No Collateral Bail Bonds Online

- Defendant’s Full Name
- Defendant’s Date of Birth
- An Email Address
- Payer’s Occupation/Employer Information
- Phone Number
Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds makes it as easy as possible to bail someone out of jail online so that you don’t have to make the trip to the jail or bail bond office yourself. All documents can be completed online, and signatures obtained through DocuSign, Email, or fax, whatever is easiest for you.
To bail someone out of jail online, you will need to provide information about the defendant, including their full name and birth date. An email address for the person paying the bail bond will be required to process the documents, and an address and phone number for both the payer and the defendant will be necessary to complete all documentation. If a payment plan is necessary, the employment information for the person making the payments will be required.
How Much is a No Collateral Bail Bond?
When calculating the cost of bail required to get out of jail, a person must add up all of the charges that are being made and add to that any enhancements to the charges. This adds up in a hurry and can make paying bail in cash a near impossibility for many people. Bail bonds companies work with the court system to secure an individual’s release from jail at a fraction of the total cost of bail.
Many times, the arresting officers or the district attorney will charge an individual with the most serious versions of the crime for which they are arrested. They may even charge someone with multiple versions of the same crime so that the case can be “bargained” down the road.
What if I Can’t Afford Bail Without Collateral?
If you have the cash, you can bail yourself out of jail, working directly with the courts, and be on your way home in no time. However, the State of California often sets the bail rates very high for certain crimes. In addition, the arresting officers will often charge for as many different violations and variations of crimes as possible, not knowing which crimes might actually go to trial. Each of those charges and enhancements may require separate or additional amounts of bail. All of that can add up in a hurry.
It can be difficult for most people to come up with the cash necessary to bail out jail directly through the court system. Bail bonds can help.
A bail bond agency contracts through a surety company to provide a bond to the court on your behalf. The bond ensures compliance with all court-ordered appearances in return for a small portion (usually 10%) of the total cost of bail.
When bail amounts are high, the amount needed to secure a bail bond can also be quite high. The State of California sets minimum bail bond fee requirements that all agencies must abide by, meaning that each agency must charge a minimum of 7% for bail bonds, and most bail situations require a 10% fee. At Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds, the dedicated bail agents understand that not everyone has the ready cash to pay for either bail or bail bonds, but still need help to get out of jail. Mr. Nice Guy offers a variety of payment plans and accepts a number of payment methods.
What if I Don’t Pay Bail with Collateral?
If you cannot or do not wish to post bail, you will be required to remain behind bars until the legal proceedings related to your case have been completed. If the judge wishes, they have the authority to release a defendant on the Own Recognizance, also called release on OR. However, this is very unlikely if the defendant is facing a charge related to manslaughter.
If you cannot afford bail, a bail bondsman can arrange bail for you at a fraction of the cost of bail. The state of California requires that all bail bond companies charge 10% of the total amount of bail, to post bond for a defendant. Charges for manslaughter can carry a bail requirement as high as $100,000. For a bail amount that high, the bail bondsman is required to charge $10,000 to post a bond in place of the bail. While this may still seem like a lot of money, it's far less than having to pay the entire amount. All these rates are set by statute, and all bail bond companies are required to charge the same amount.
