The Bail Amount is $50,000 for felony Domestic Violence
When police respond to a domestic violence call, they are required by law to try to determine who the primary aggressor was even if both people committed acts of violence. The law discourages arresting both people but it can happen. The police wind up having to arrest someone even when they might not personally think it is justified. Consequently, charges are only filed on about half of the people arrested for felony domestic violence. We let people know this before they get a bail bond from us because the bail amount for felony domestic violence is $50,000. The bail amount is determined by the Orange County Bail Schedule. This means the cost for the bail bond is typically $5,000. People will often pay for the bail bond with a credit card.

We can usually get the bail bond posted before they get transferred.
Alcohol and/or drugs are often involved. The couple might be going through divorce or heading in that direction.
