Getting a bail bond in Louisiana is a simple and easy process since Louisiana has strict licensing requirements for bail bonds agents, often called Commercial Sureties in this state, and are monitored by the Louisiana Department of Insurance. To be an agent in Louisiana, by law they must first be an apprentice for a full six months under a licensed bail bonds producer. They must also take a pre-licensing course, pass an examination and a background check. Many reputable Louisiana bail bonds agents are also members of the Association of Louisiana Bail Underwriters.

In Louisiana bail bonds fees are usually 12% except in Orleans Parish which is 13% or Jefferson Parish which is 12.5%. In addition there are release and processing fees which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Collateral in addition to these fees is also required and in most cases a Promissory Note and an Indemnity Agreement is used for that purpose. If the defendant does not meet his required court appearances the signer would be responsible for all expenses or losses suffered by the bondsman. WARNING: Generally speaking, Louisiana bail agents do not allow client defendants to leave the state while out on bail. If you are from out of state, live out of state, or do business out of the state of Louisiana, it is important to clarify with the bail bond agent their travel rules before signing a bond contract with them.

Louisiana allows Bail Reduction Assistance Agencies. They may be able to help ensure a lower bail initially or even request a pre-exisiting bail amout be lowered. If this is important to you, you may want to ask them if they offer these types of services when you email the bail bond agencies.

If you are arrested in Louisiana there are basically five ways to be released:

1. Surety bond – use a bail bondsmen which will require a fee and perhaps collateral;
2. Cash bond – post cash for the full amount of the bond with the court or jail;
3. Property bond – use real property (such as a home) with the court;
4. Release On Own Recognizance, O.R. – the judge can release the defendant on their own recognizance.
5. Release on Citation -Cite Out

New Orleans bail bonds can be easy to get if you understand the process. Unfortunately, many of those who need them are from out of town and get swept up in the party atmosphere. TIP: New Orleans bail bondsmen will typically not let a client leave the state after posting bail. This can be a huge inconvenience for those who live eslewhere. If this could be a problem for you, we suggest you ask them about their policy on this issue in an email where you will have a recorded quote from them.

WARNING: the New Orleans newspaper The Times-Picayune, exposed that the FBI launched a widening probe of crooked bail bond transactions in the New Orleans parish in April 2012. This comes after another investigation into bail bondsmen last summer. We strongly recommend that all your initial communications with bail bond agents be by email so there is a written record of exactly what was said and promised by the bondsman.

Unfortunately, New Orleans has come under fire in recent years for housing inmates in deplorable, overcrowded, underfunded and violent conditions. Adding to the problem, it may be more common in New Orleans to be given jail time for minor offenses than any comparable city in America. This has lead to an unstable jail system and we strongly recommend that you take any arrest in this jurisdiction seriously.

On the other hand, with all the outside pressure from the U.S. government, federal marshals, SPLC and other agencies, the parish has been forced to evaluate ways to lessen the overcrowding. Generally that means programs designed to give defendants a way to get out either through affordable bail bonds or no bail bond requirement at all. TIP: a little known pre-trial program started in May 2012, allows arrestees to meet with a screener panel of usually three people, who can help expedite the bail process and recommend to the judge bail requirements. When emailing bail bond agents, ask them how to arrange this.
