Yes, you can get your bail reduced at any time. But the court will likely want to see "changed circumstances" justifying the reduction.

In my experience, I don't see why not. A reduction in bail is decided by the Judge and your 10% obligation is usually the amount owed to the bail bondsman. Speak with your attorney about this matter and the attorney can decide whether it is worth pursuing a reduction in bail. If there is no attorney, consider retaining private counsel.

Yes, because bail reduction is with the judge and bail payment is with the bondsman. Good luck.

What you owe the bondsman has no relevant to whether a Judge will grant your request to reduce bail. How your lawyer presents your case is the key.
