Drinking can Lead to Needing Bail

Drinking can Lead to Needing Bail

Drinking with friends is always fun. Grabbing a beer or margarita here and there seems like a great way to keep the party going. What kills a party buzz is driving while intoxicated. It’s all fun and games up until someone decides to makes the irresponsible decision to get behind a wheel.

Say you went out with friends the other night, and you thought someone else was going to be the designated driver. It turns out that it was your turn to be the DD, and now you have to drive everyone home after a few drinks. Against your better judgment you say you feel fine and decide to drive everyone home. After all, out of all of your friends, you’re the only one that can actually walk in a semi straight line.

By some miracle you’ve managed to drop all your friends off, and you didn’t wreck the car. Now your last stop will be your own house. While driving back home you get sleepy, and your driving skills are really slipping up. Luckily a cop sees you swerving and pulls you over. Even if your intentions were good and you didn’t hurt anyone, you still were over the legal limit. The officer, doing their job issues you a DUI. Now what?

You call the people you know you can depend on. Maybe a family member or maybe you call us, Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles, because we are always there when you need us.

Once you call us, you will immediately be in contact with one of trained bail agents who are available 24/7. The bail agent will help make this situation go as smoothly as possible.

On top of that, you can go to jail for at least six months. Nobody has time for that.

What Can Family Do for You?

What Can Family Do for You?

There is nothing quite like family. It is a group of people who you can both love and hate simultaneously. Nobody knows how to get on your nerves like family, but no one is ever there for you like family is either. This is why we love our families, and would do anything for them, despite how annoying they can be at times.

When you learn of your family member’s arrest, you are devastated. How could this happen to someone you know? Regardless of how it happened, you set out to help your loved one get out of jail. You are determined to post his or her bail, unfortunately, you failed to realize how big of an undertaking that is.

Bail, even for the smallest of arrests, costs several thousands of dollars in the state of California. Most everyday people do not have that kind of money available to pay for someone’s bail, even if that person is a close loved one. Any money they do have, is already slated to go toward paying bills and buying groceries.

This is where it can be helpful to hire a bail agent. A bail agent will pay the full price of the bail bond in return for being paid just a portion of it. In California, bail bond companies charge 10% of the bail price of the bail that they are paying for. This means that by hiring a bail agent, you can bail out your family member at only 10% of their bail amount.

The best bail agents in California can be found at Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles. This is due to the fact that we are a family-owned company. All of our agents are a part of the family here, and this helps them understand what their clients are going through. Our agents understand how important your family member is to you, and they will help you get him or her out of jail quickly.

3 Things Parents Should Consider Before Posting Bail for Adult Children

3 Things Parents Should Consider Before Posting Bail for Adult Children

No parent wants to learn that their adult child has been arrested. Even though your child is an adult, it’s natural to want to do whatever it takes to help them out. That includes paying your adult child’s bail. Before you withdraw your life savings and rush to the jail there are a few things you need to consider before posting bail for your adult child.

Can you Afford to Post your Adult Child’s Bail?

Your child should learn how much bail they’ll need shortly after they’ve been arrested. Once you know the amount, it’s time to make an honest assessment of your financial situation. As much as you want to help your adult child, doing so shouldn’t put you in a position where you are no longer able to pay your mortgage or buy groceries for yourself.

If you’re afraid that posting your adult child’s bail will put you in a financial bind, you should contact local California bail bonds businesses for a free bail bonds consultation.

How Quickly Can You Reach Your Child?

The first thing you should ask your newly arrested child is if they are okay. The second thing to learn is where they’re located. If they’ve been arrested in your home city/county, reaching your adult child is easy but things get more complicated if you are currently located in Maryland and they were arrested in California.

If you’re living in a different state, you have two choices. First, you can find someone to act as an intermediary and have them post the bail for you. The person must be trustworthy enough that you’re confident they’ll use the money you wire them to post your adult child’s bail and not simply pocket the money and disappear. In most cases, you’re better off using a bail bondsman who offers low-interest bond instead of a family friend/relation.

If you don’t have someone in the area you can trust, you’ll have to travel to the city/county where your adult child is incarcerated. The travel expenses will have to be considered when you’re trying to figure out if you can afford to post your adult child’s bail.

Can You Trust Your Child to Make Their Court Date?

Posting bail for an adult child requires trust, particularly if you don’t live in the area. You must be confident that they will attend every single one of their court dates. Failing to appear to court will only make your adult child’s situation worse.

Failing to appear in court, which is also called bail jumping, has some serious consequences in California. The original charges don’t go away simply because your child skipped their court date. The bail you posted for your adult child will be forfeited. In many cases, additional charges are filed against your adult child, increasing the chances of them spending time in jail.

If you used personal assets, such as a car or your house as collateral for the bail you could lose them forever.

If you’re worried your adult child will jump bail, it’s in both yours and your child’s best interest to refuse to bail them out.

Bailing Out vs. Staying In Jail

Bailing Out vs. Staying In Jail

One of the decisions you have to make after you’ve been arrested is whether you want to be bailed out or stay in jail. There are pros and cons to both choices.

The Benefits of Bailing Out of Jail

The biggest benefit connected to getting bailed out of jail is that it enables you to go about your life while the court system to handle your case. The judicial system is incredibly slow. If you aren’t bailed out, you could spend months in a jail cell, waiting for the next step of the system to begin. Getting bailed out allows you to spend that time meeting with your lawyers, continuing to work and earn a living, and spending time with your family. You can sleep in your own bed, eat your own food, and continue to enjoy your life.

The Benefits of Staying in Jail

There actually are some benefits to staying in jail. The biggest is that if you plead or are found guilty, the judge often deducts the time you spent in the county jail off your sentence. This is called time served and significantly reduces the amount of time you spend in prison.

Things to Consider Before Getting Bailed Out

In most cases, getting bailed out of jail means you can continue living your life as you see fit, but there are some exceptions. Depending on the charges filed against you and your history the judge may place some serious restrictions on you. These restrictions can include limiting how far you’re allowed to wander from your house, the times of the day you are allowed to leave home, and who you associate with. If you’re caught breaking the law, you’ll be in violation of your bail agreement and sent back to jail.

It’s extremely important that you fully understand the conditions of your bail before you leave the county jail. The smallest misstep or infraction can land you in serious trouble.

In many cases, the main reason someone doesn’t pay bail is that they simply can’t afford it.

Using Collateral to Help Secure Bail

Using Collateral to Help Secure Bail

Bail is a funny thing. In some situations, bail is nothing more than a signature on a piece of paper. In other cases, a judge sets a bail that is six figures, way more than you can ever hope to pay.

Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles is a local bail bonds business that has the resources needed to cover your bail when you simply can’t afford to. All we ask is that you pay us 10%, which we keep. Once you’ve come up with 10% of the bail, we pay the additional 90% and you’re released from jail. When your case reaches its conclusion, we get to keep the 10% you paid.

Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles is a family-owned bail bonds company. We’ve worked hard to hone a reputation for providing discrete and fair services for each of our clients. We understand that a one size fits all approach to bail doesn’t work. You are a unique person with unique needs. Our desire to help as many people as possible cover their bail prompted us to create flexible bail bonds plans. Our program includes:

• Flexible payment plans
• No hidden fees
0% Interest payment plans
• No collateral with a working signer

 
The problem some people run into when they’re trying to cover bail is that they lack the credit history of financial means to meet our needs. That doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. It just means we have to work even harder to come up with a plan that works for both you and us. In many cases, that means you providing some sort of collateral.

The point of collateral is that it provides us with a little security. If you default on your bail bonds payments or if you fail to appear in court and forfeit your bail, we get to keep whatever you signed over as collateral.
Items people use as collateral when they sign a bail contract includes:

• Real estate
• Vehicles
• Electronic equipment
• Guns
• Jewelry

 
To use something as collateral, you have to prove both its value and that you own the item. We can’t accept anything that you’re still paying for, such as a mortgaged house. Once the case has made it through the court system and the court returns our money, we return the item to you.

Consequences of Failing to Honour Your Bail Agreement

Consequences of Failing to Honour Your Bail Agreement

Bail is a monetary agreement you enter into with the court system. You pay bail in exchange for being released from jail. If you make all your court appearances, the court eventually returns the money to you.

When you Cover your Bail

If you’ve paid the bail yourself and fail to appear in court, you forfeit the money. That doesn’t mean the court forgets about you. They have some options which include:

• Swearing out an arrest warrant
• Sending officers to your home to get you
• Suspending your driver’s license
• Additional charges could be filed against you

 
If you’ve used a bail bonds agency, things become complicated.

When You’re Working with a Bail Bonds Agency

If you fail to appear in court, we aren’t just out the 10% of the bail you paid us, but we’re out the entire amount. The only way we can get our money back is by making sure you make it back to court. It’s in our best interest to make this happen as quickly as possible. We do this by sending a respected bail bond agent to find you and transport you to jail. 

Failing to appear in court is often hardest on the people who believed in you so much that they co-signed for you bail or even offered up some of their assets as collateral. You owe it to them to make all of your court appearances and not doing anything to jeopardize the terms of your release.

Contact Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles Today
