There are two ways for a person who is on bail to get a bond reduction. The first is via a stipulation with the district attorney's office for the reduced amount of the bond. The second way is to file a petition with the court seeking a reduction. The court then makes the decision as to whether or not to reduce the amount of the bond in place.
