Bailing Out Of Jail On A Budget

Newman Bail Bond Store

A $50,000 bail is nearly impossible for you to pay to secure your loved one’s bail because by the time you’re able to get your hands on $50,000, the trial might already be over. Paying bail directly to court to secure release means you have to pay the entire bail upfront before they can be released.

Everyone has a budget they must work with and we at Newman Bail Bond Store understand that. That’s why bail bonds exist. Bail bonds are an alternative to bail that provide the same outcome, but on a more affordable and ideal process.

A bail bond from Newman Bail Bond Store will be paid off on a customized payment plan that you and your bail agent work together on, based off of your financial situation...

Coping With Arrests, Bail And Children

Modesto Bail Bond Store

You’re well aware that an arrest can be difficult for family members to bear with, but have you considered how your situation and absence can affect your young children? Young children do not have the developed minds to understand the scope and seriousness of the situation. Instead of understanding that this was a serious mistake and that you face serious consequences like fines and jail, they’re going to be wondering where you have been (when you were in custody) and why the police were taking you away.

It’s perhaps the hardest to explain the concept to young children, compared to anyone else. Trying to make them understand, probably by lying about the truth here and there, is difficult. Your absence can really shape how they might grow up without you...

About Those California Gun Laws

What Is Bail For?

Modesto Bail Bond Store

During a defendant’s trial period, it’s not (always) fair to keep the defendant in custody. He or she has technically not yet been formally found guilty. To keep fairness (while also considering the safety of others), the opportunity to bail was introduced. Bail is set by a judge and it is an amount of money owed to court if a defendant wishes to be freed from jail during the trial period. The money for bail is up to the defendant (and anyone on his or her behalf) to give – it is not public money or money taxpayers pay.

Bail is very expensive but fully refundable at the close of trial if the defendant has remained compliant with all release terms and conditions. It is so expensive because it is an incentive for him or her to remain cooperative.

Bail bonds are a cheaper alternative t...

Bail Bond Store: What You Need To Remember

Modesto Bail Bond Store

A bail bond is a non-refundable payment to a bail agent and company that gets a person out of jail. This person has not yet stood trial; bail bond releases are not allowed for those who have been found guilty and sentenced to prison. Here are common bail bond rules to keep in mind:

  • The bail amount is set by the judge based on the crime, the person’s criminal history and their ties to the community.
  • The defendant, or someone on their behalf, must contact the bail company to discuss the situation and get a bail bond. Bail bond companies will not be the ones to initiate and reach out to the defendant.
  • The bail agent does not have the authority to lower bail, nor can he or she request the judge to re-evaluate the bail amount.
  • The defendant is required to show up at all court appointmen...
