Can You Use Your Tax Return For Bail?

Ceres Bail Bonds

Like any money that is yours, give extra thought into what you want to do with your tax return when it comes in. Will you save or invest it? Can you afford to splurge and treat yourself to something nice? Do you need to use it to pay off rent, bills, or your bail bond payments?

Pay Your Tickets Before You Pay With Your Time And Freedom

Bystrom Bail Bonds

If you think that you can get away without paying for your parking tickets, think again. The longer you put off paying your parking tickets, the more likely the police are going to issue a warrant for your arrest. If you keep piling on those unpaid tickets, that warrant is going to come for you and you may not even know it.

If you find yourself slipping into this predicament, you can actually contact Bystrom Bail Bond Store, because we can do a free, anonymous warrant check in most California counties. If you are not showing up as a wanted person, that is great, and we recommend you pay off that ticket immediately. If your name does pop up though, we can chat about your bail options. Then you will need to turn yourself in and pay those tickets.


Checking for arrest warrants is a lesser ...

Bail Bonds Over Cash Bail – Here’s Why

Turlock Bail Bonds

Bail bonds are an alternative method to posting cash bail.

Cash bail can be in the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. The full amount must be paid in order for the defendant to be released.

Bail bonds, on the other hand, offer more flexibility and breathing room.

  1. A professional bail agent facilitates the entire process.
  2. Only 10% of the full bail amount will be paid.
  3. This 10% is paid off on a customized payment plan.
  4. Only paperwork needs to be completed for the defendant to be freed; the payment plan extends beyond the defendant’s release date.

The main catch is that with cash bail, this money can be refunded, but the 10% for a bail bond is not refundable. Nonetheless, most people post bail using bail bonds because there is more guidance and assistance...

When Getting Arrested Might Actually Be Funny

Modesto Bail Bonds

Usually, getting arrested is no laughing matter, but maybe one day it will be both a laughing matter and a “are you serious?” matter. We are talking about a wild case where a person is arrested for committing the most outrageous, silly crimes in California. These crimes come from laws that really leave us scratching our heads. Here are some, for your enjoyment.

Funny Law

  • Any car that does not have a driver cannot go faster than 60 miles per hour. 30 miles per hour without a driver is okay then?
  • Women may not drive in a housecoat. It must be so unfashionable.
  • Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship. Did someone make sure to tell the animals that?
  • Ice cream may not be eaten while standing on the sidewalk. Sorry, kids.
  • One may ...

Out On Bail Will More Likely Appear For Court

Hughson Bail Bonds

Did you know that a person who is out on bail is more likely to show up for their court dates? One of the biggest reasons this is true is that their current release could not have happened if it were not for the bail bond co-signer and/or anyone who pledged collateral.

If the defendant fails to appear in court, the co-signer feels the consequences and the collateral is taken away. So loved ones are betting on the defendant to show up in court; the defendant does not want to let their loved ones down. They want to prove to them and to everyone that they can handle this situation maturely and responsibly. This is why they are more likely to show up for court. When you bail a friend or family member out of jail, you become a part of that person’s support group...

What Happens During Booking?

Bret Harte Bail Bonds

When you hear that someone is arrested, you will probably hear that they will be booked. What does that mean and what do you need to know about it?

Booking occurs right after a person is arrested and taken back to the police station or jail. There are a series of steps in the booking process:

  • Mugshots will be taken
  • As will Fingerprints
  • The defendant’s name and accused crime will be noted
  • A full body search will be conducted
  • The suspect’s clothes will be confiscated and replaced with a jumpsuit
  • Any personal items will be confiscated
  • Any outstanding warrants for the suspect will be checked

The arraignment is what you should be even more concerned about, if your loved one is arrested. This is when the judge determines the defendant’s bail...
