Bail Bond Truths Revealed By Debunking Common Myths

ontario-bail-bonds-783

A lot of what people understand about the bail bond industry, before ever finding out they will need a bail bond, is what they see on television. Even then, what they learn from television about bail bonds is very little, and certainly not the whole picture. We are here to spill some truths by debunking common myths surrounding the bail bonds industry.

  • Myth: Only family members can help bail out the individual.
  • Truth: Simply put, anyone willing to help the individual pay for bail, can do so. Multiple parties can pay for the bail bond.
  • Myth: Bail bonds must be paid for in cash.
  • Truth: Bail bond payments can be made in cash, credit or debit, or check form.
  • Myth: Bail agents can lower the cost of bail.
  • Truth: Bail agents do not have the authority to lower bail, nor can they speak to a judge about lowering it. In California, bail bonds have to be 10% of the bail price.

While there is plenty to learn about bail bonds, especially if you need one for yourself or a loved one, they are fairly easy to understand. Ontario Bail Bond Store is available around the clock to answer questions, take care of your concerns, and even provide free consultations.

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.

What Does A Bail Bond Cosigner Do?

ontario-bail-bonds-643

Applying for a bail bond means you need to meet a few qualifications.

  1. For one, whoever the bail bond is for needs to have been granted bail by the judge; sometimes the judge will deny bail, meaning that person cannot get a bail bond.
  2. Another qualification is the need for a co-signer. A co-signer is a person, who is not the defendant, which will assume the responsibility for the defendant, making sure they go to court when he or she is appointed to. If the defendant does not go to court, the co-signer can face financial consequences.

It may sound like a co-signer is put into a risky situation and can be end up being taken advantage of but, a co-signer does have protection

  1. The co-signer can request that the defendant is required to take some tests and evaluations such as drug tests and some psych evaluations before signing the bailbond.
  2. The co-signer can remove his or her signature from the bail bond at any time they wish. If they feel that they have a good reason to believe that the defendant will skip court, they can act on it. If this does happen, the defendant will be taken back into custody.

Learn more about becoming a co-signer to a loved one’s bail bond by calling Ontario Bail Bond Store today! Ontario Bail Bond Store wants to bring your loved one home from jail, but we will also want to make sure that the co-signer is protected as well!

What To Know Before Cosigning A Bail Bond

ontario-bail-bonds-562

Before co-signing a bail bond, you may want to know what you’re getting yourself into. It’s a nice gesture to do for that friend or family member who has been arrested because it not only shows that you care about them, but that you’re willing to support them through this whole ordeal as well. However, there are also some very big risks that could be of concern, and we’re here to lay them out for you right now:

  • You agree to pay off the full bail bond if the defendant fails to appear in court.
  • You must pledge collateral to support the bail bond.
  • You must relinquish your pledged collateral if the bail bond is revoked because the defendant failed to appear in court.

You’re probably already aware, but pledged collateral is no in-expensive item. It’s typically real estate property, vehicles, and valuables; such as jewelry, electronics, and firearms. Risks like these can completely deter people from ever co-signing a bail bond, even for their most trusted loved ones, but co-signers also have powerful rights to protect themselves. They may withdraw their name from the bail bond at any time if they feel that the defendant will skip court or violate the law again. By revoking their name from the bail bond, the defendant will be taken back into custody and the pledged collateral will be returned to the co-signer.

Ontario Bail Bond Store can get into the nitty-gritty of being a co-signer because it’s imperative that one know every last detail about this subject for their own protection. We’re here to help bail people out of jail, but we’re also here to look after the co-signers as well. Ontario Bail Bond Store has everyone’s back!

Why Some Juveniles Will Get Bail While Most Won’t

ontario-bail-bonds-553

In the majority of cases, juveniles (17 years of age or younger) who have been arrested won’t have to pay for bail because the way the justice system is set up, they won’t be offered bail. They will be released to their parents. Bail is only offered for those who are 18 years or older, unless the judge denies bail. However, the exception to bail and juveniles is that if the juvenile is being tried as an adult, then he or she can be eligible for bail.

How You Know If You Can Apply For A Bail Bond

ontario-bail-bonds-493

Most defendants will be eligible to apply for a bail bond to get out of jail if they wish to use this route; however, not all defendants will qualify for a bail bond. Here are a couple of basic parameters:

  • You don’t need to be above or below a certain average household income.
  • You don’t need to be of a certain age.
  • It doesn’t matter if you’ve used a bail bond before or not.

There is only one person, who will decide if you qualify for a bail bond, and that is the judge at your arraignment hearing.

The arraignment hearing occurs after the defendant has been arrested and booked, and before the actual trial. This is when the charges are formally announced and bail is determined. The judge can declare that the defendant to be held without bail – meaning they have to remain in custody (usually for those accused of the most heinous crimes or considered to be a high flight risk), or the judge can announce that the defendant’s bail is set at a certain price. Bail prices follow a bail schedule that is reviewed annually, and the defendant’s ties to the community and whether or not they have a pre-existing criminal record will also be taken into consideration.

By attending your arraignment hearing, you’ll know if you can apply for a bail bond. If you’re offered bail, you can contact a bail bond agent from Ontario Bail Bond Store immediately. Our company is available 24/7 state-wide in California, and we will work with you, your supportive family, and your friends to get you out of jail fast.

Bail Bonds Work And Ontario Bail Bond Store Can Prove It

ontario-bail-bonds-store-468

Bail bonds as a way of jail release are working. What do we mean by that? We mean that by releasing a defendant from jail, with payment, we are giving the defendant some of his or her life back. They can go to work, hang with friends and family, live comfortably as possible at home. They need to show up for court and make bail bond payments, which can come from themselves or friends or family on their behalf. The defendants are well aware of the risks and consequences they face if they disobey these bail conditions. Because of that, they are more likely to obey those terms, less likely to go against them and cause more trouble.

By getting arrested, the defendant has experienced first-hand everything they can lose in a heartbeat. They’ve gone to jail. They have felt the heartbreak in friends and family. They are going to do their very best to turn their life around and prove to their loved ones that they regret their actions that caused them to get arrested in the first place. They want to prove they are still a good person and are capable of change for the better. Ontario Bail Bond Store wants to help these arrested individuals improve and succeed at these personal goals. We believe in the right to bail; we believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Ontario Bail Bond Store has witnessed success story after success story after success story.

Why You Should Always Post Bail

ontario-bail-bonds-408

Even though posting bail is a very expensive cost, is a cost that is most worth it. If a person is offered bail, they should absolutely take that opportunity. Some may decide not to post bail, but we at Ontario Bail Bond Store do not quite support that decision. We believe that by not posting bail, a person is denying themselves so much; such as:

  • second chance
  • redemption; happiness
  • friends and family
  • support
  • belief in one’s own self

They are either punishing themselves by not posting bail or they are simply trying to save that money because they cannot meet it, they’re unsure how they’ll recover in the long run financially, or they’re afraid to ask for financial support from loved ones.

However, with the right help from Ontario Bail Bond Store, you can afford bail. With the most genuine and caring friends and family, you can afford bail. With the motivation and desire to be a good person, you can afford bail.

Connect with Ontario Bail Bond Store for a free consultation on how we can make paying for bail cheaper and easier. We’re willing to do what it takes to help get you out of jail – including working up a personalized payment plan and not giving up on you! We believe in you, so you should believe in yourself!

Contact Ontario Bail Bond Store today so that you can start getting past this situation!
