Small Ways To Save Money

Modesto Bail Bonds

A savings account acts as a financial security blanket. Ideally, this savings account will be for future large wanted purchases like a wedding, a home, vacations, and your children’s college tuition. This is an account that should never be touched to withdraw money from – money only gets deposited into it. However, these savings accounts also come in handy when unexpected payments come up. A good example of this would be the sudden need to pay for bail.

Bail can be thousands of dollars, even if a person is bailing out of jail with a bail bond. Instead of having to scramble to get the money for bail, this person can hopefully get most, if not all, of the funds from their savings account.

There are many ways to grow a savings account, which include the obvious: saving a portion of each ...

Modesto Bail Bonds

When a person is arrested, it is too easy to believe that the rest of their life as they had planned it to be goes down the drain. As far as they are concerned, their reputation is tainted for life.

A Look At Some Of The Most Expensive Bails In U.S. History

Modesto Bail Bonds

Last month, a Northern California woman named Tiffany Li had posted the country’s 8th highest bail in the U.S.’s state court history. Li, accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend and father to her two young children, was given a $35 million bail. She posted twice that amount in property. The equity in these properties comes from her family and business associates. Her family is rich and powerful in China, so meeting the bail requirements was hardly a struggle for Li. The $70 million in equity was reviewed and everything checked out properly, granting Li her release from custody.
