Drinking and Driving Is Never a Good Idea

riverside-county-bail-bonds-742

There will never be too many warnings against drinking and driving because, even though we are constantly reminded of this message, people do it anyway. They think they are good at driving, even while under the influence. That they will not get into an accident, or they won’t be pulled over. People continue to drive after having drinks.

However, people do get into accidents and get pulled over. These people too thought it would not happen to them. Some end up in the hospital, some in jail, and the worst cases – a deathbed. Imagine what that person’s family and friends go through. Imagine if it was you.

There are so many alternatives to driving – a taxi, ‘Uber’, ‘Lyft’, the bus, a sober designated driver. Call someone to pick you up. You can even call the cops to drive you home. If you are hammered, definitely do not drive. If you had one drink, think twice about getting behind the wheel. This is a responsibility you need to take for yourself and for others, because getting behind the wheel while drunk puts others at risk too. On top of that, do not let your friends and family members drive home drunk either.

Do you want to end up in jail? Do you want to have this mark on your record? Do you want to have to pay to get out of jail? Definitely not.

Here at Riverside County Bail Bond Store, we are all too familiar with drunk drivers – we bail them out of jail. We dislike the situation, but we will not hesitate to get them out of jail, and we will not hesitate to do the same for you.

Bail Is Not Tax Deductible, but Ontario Bail Bond Store Considers Your Finances

ontario-bail-bonds-743

Although tax season just ended, and taxes are the last thing you want to think about right now, it is important for us to acknowledge that bail is not tax deductible. It is something we must answer because many people ask this question. People are arrested right and left and with such a large amount of money going towards their bail, they wonder if they can write it off in their taxes. Unfortunately, no.

You are paying the bail bond company who is helping to get your loved one out of jail. This involves the government, obviously, but bail is really a guarantee/ surety that the defendant will return to court as promised. This promise to return is a part of their release conditions. It is not tax-deductible.

If money is your concern, Ontario Bail Bond Store can help resolve some of this. Bail bonds are set up on a payment system so that each month, the payment is a low amount. After so many months, the bail bond will be paid off. Ontario Bail Bond Store accepts cash, credit, debit, and checks; there is a convenient online payment system. You can even put your tax return money towards bail bond payments. In total, you are only paying 10% of the bail and for qualifying individuals, financing and discounts are available.

To learn more about bail bonds, or to apply for one, chat with a representative online or call 800-793-2245.

Weighing Pros And Cons Of Cash Vs. Bail Bonds

victorville-bail-bonds-744

When a person is granted bail, they have two ways of paying for it: a cash bond or a bail bond. Here, we weigh both concepts:

    Cash Bond

  • Pay whole bail amount up-front; entire amount must be paid before defendant can be released.
  • There is no third party to deal with.
  • There is less paperwork to take care of this way.
  • Bail is 100% refundable, as long as defendant complies with release terms and goes to court. The refund comes in check form but often takes a few months to get back.
  • If the defendant does not show up in court, you lose your money, and perhaps your relationship and trust with the defendant from there on out. The defendant will be taken back into custody.
  • Bail Bond

  • Pay only 10% of the full bail amount to the bail bond company (third party), but it is not refundable.
  • The 10% is paid over a payment plan that extends beyond the time of the defendant’s release.
  • Cash, credit, debit, and checks are acceptable forms of payment.
  • Requires collateral and a co-signer who can vouch for the defendant and make sure they meet court dates. If the defendant skips court, the defendant will be taken back into custody, collateral may be taken, and the full bail price may need to be paid by the co-signer.
  • Co-signer may take their name off the bail bond at any time they wish if they lose trust in the defendant.
  • A professional bail agent will be with you through the whole process so you know exactly what is happening.

Deciding between the two really comes down to what you can afford. Obviously, you want to get your loved one out as soon as possible, but at the same time, you need to have the money. Bail bonds are not reserved solely for those in the lower income bracket; bail bonds are available to anyone (even filthy rich celebrities use bail bonds). Victorville Bail Bond Store will help anyone who needs a bail bond and they will work with you to customize the payment plan so it is as comfortable for you as possible.

What Is a Search Warrant, and When Is It Needed

riverside-county-bail-bonds-741

If the police, while investigating a criminal matter, need to look through your property and belongings, they will often need a search warrant, unless you freely grant them permission to search. To get a search warrant, they will approach a judge and explain why a search warrant is necessary, e.g., reasonable suspicion that you have knowledge of or are directly involved with a crime. If the judge signs off, the police will hand the search warrant to you, and you must step aside from there. The police are free to search areas and seize items listed in the search warrant.

    There are a few situations where officers will not need a search warrant:

  • As mentioned, if you allow them to search
  • If they see something incriminating that is in plain view
  • When they search you after arresting you
  • When they suspect something of you and stop and quickly search you

Know your rights. Remember, you can refuse the police officers’ request to search if they ask without having a warrant; they will need to come back with a warrant.

If you have been arrested for a crime, Riverside County Bail Bond Store can help bail you out of jail. We offer low monthly rate payment plans for our bail bonds and we are capable of working with people in all kinds of financial situations.

The First Gun Laws You Need To Know About In California

perris-bail-bonds-555

In light of recent events happening around the world, the topic of gun ownership always comes up. Some people want gun control while others want to keep the right to bear arms for protection and safety. People seem to have a heightened sense of security when they own guns. However, because of the deadly nature of these weapons, it will always cause an intense debate. California has some of the nation’s strictest gun laws, some of which were just added this year.

    Here are some things that you might not be aware of:

  • Long gun purchasers must be 18 and handgun purchases must be at least 21 years old. Purchasers may only buy a maximum of 1 handgun per month.
  • Before receiving their gun, purchasers must pass a universal background check, which will take 10 days minimum.
  • Purchasers must pass a written safety test and obtain a Firearm Safety Certificate.
  • Every gun will be micro-stamped, meaning a unique serial number will be transferred to every cartridge case every time the gun is fired. This allows crime scene investigators and police to trace bullets back to the gun owner.
  • Assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines are illegal to sell or buy.
  • Guns must be sold and purchased through licensed dealers; private sales are illegal.
  • No one may carry a gun on school campuses, including those who hold concealed weapons permits.
  • If family members believe their loved one, who owns a gun, is dangerous, they can request the police and judge to confiscate the guns for a few weeks. During these few weeks, the gun owner will be evaluated and questioned to figure out the situation and threat.

These gun laws are just the tip of the iceberg; obviously, there are hundreds of other laws regarding guns, but this is what you need to know if you ever consider owning a gun.
Guns can and will get you into serious trouble, so we at Perris Bail Bond Store are here to warn and caution people for their own safety. If you are ever arrested for misusing your gun, contact us immediately so we can help you sort this out. Perris Bail Bond Store may be able to help bail you out of jail.

Putting Your Tax Refund Towards A Bail Bond Payment

rialto-bail-bonds-535

As much as you hate taxes and tax season, perhaps this time of year you might like it because you’ll be receiving a nice tax refund check. With this money, you plan to use it wisely and pay off some that cannot be missed: the bail bond for family member, for example.

Not having a pool of money readily available for a bail bond is not a problem – who prepares themselves to pay for a bail bond? They don’t put aside a percentage of every check into a dedicated “bail bond” jar so that 5 years later, they’ll be ready to suddenly pay for a bail bond. This is not the situation.

Still, bail bonds are affordable when you go to Rialto Bail Bond Store and let them help you. Rialto Bail Bond Store will create a customized, low monthly rate payment plan that is fit to your financial needs so that you do not stress too much on making ends meet while paying for a bail bond. Yes, you may need to reallocate your spending, but it’s doable. The payments are as low and as affordable as possible, and now, you’ve got that tax refund to use as well!

Ask For Help Before It’s Too Late

victorville-bail-bonds-534

Asking for help might be intimidating and embarrassing, especially for young adults. Young adults want to prove they can handle everything they get involved in. They want to show their independence. However, no young adult is equipped to handle a very big problem, such as a legal problem, especially, on their own with limited resources.

Closest friends and family are some of the best people to offer help and support. They know you best and they have a close relationship with you. There is trust between the two of you. But, sometimes this existing, personal relationship is at risk if a loved one is there to help. In this case, professionals like licensed therapists and counselors are the best people to ask for help from. These people are strangers so there is no deep relationship and thus no worry of straining a relationship.

The best thing to do is get help immediately before the situation gets worse. That’s a given. But if the situation gets to the point of an arrest, it’s not the end of the world. Even at this point, it’s a very good idea to get some people involved who can support you through this “rebuilding” time of your life. Get parents, best friends, lawyers and a bail bond agent. This team is behind you.

As far as bail bonds go, you can get a bail agent from Victorville Bail Bond Store. Your bail agent will guide you through your entire bail bonds process, making it as easy and stress-free as possible for you.

Victorville Bail Bond Store is available 24 hours a day; 7 days a week, so please, do not hesitate to give us a call today!

What Are Bail Bonds For?

riverside-county-bail-bonds-531

The purpose of a bail bond is to ensure a person’s release from jail and the pre-trial, but also to ensure that they will honor their commitment to appear in court before the judge. In order to receive a bail bond:

  1. First, the defendant must first be granted the opportunity to bail by a judge during the arraignment hearing.
  2. Secondly, the defendant, or someone on his or her behalf, must contact a bail bond company, and receive a consultation.
  3. Third, that person must decide if they are able to meet the company’s policies, or if they need to begin searching for another bail bond company.

The bail bond company, most likely, will ask for a 10-15% fee of the bail amount, which will be paid with the most affordable and ideal payment plan for the individual requesting, and based on the paying clients’ financial situation.

If and when the paperwork and agreements are finalized and signed by the client and the bail bond company, the holding jail will process it and release the defendant. The defendant will be required to meet all court appearances and any other release terms and conditions.

Not too difficult of a concept to understand how the bail bond process works. Riverside County Bail Bond Store will not let you or your family down!

What Happens To A Bail Bond When Court Is Missed

riverside-county-bail-bonds-532

When a person is released from jail on a bail bond, they are also making a promise to go to all the court dates they are required to go to. Going to court is a condition of their release. If there is a conflict, it is best to get the other obstacle moved out of the way, and not the court date. However, if it is really a pressing conflict, the individual is advised to speak with their lawyer and the judge in order to request a change of date. The judge may or may not allow it, but if they don’t, it is imperative that the individual shows up to their appointed court date.

If they miss a court date for whatever reason, the bail bond, and thus their freedom from jail, is in jeopardy. The judge may give a warning or forfeit the bond immediately. If and when this happens, the defendant will be taken back into custody. If this does not happen promptly or smoothly, the judge can issue a bench warrant for arrest, alerting the police.

For those who are not trying to be problematic and are trustworthy, the bail agent can reinstate the bail bond and request that the bench warrant be cancelled. If this follows through, the defendant will not be taken back into custody.

Although there is much to know about bail bonds, it’s not too difficult to understand. Contact Riverside County Bail Bond Store to get the full, detailed, run-down, as well as a free consultation on how we can help you and your family in the most affordable way.

Call us today at 800-793-2245 to get more information on how we can help you and your family.
