Long Beach Bail Bonds

What happens if you get arrested and need help to bail out of jail? You don’t have the funds to meet the requirements by yourself and you need someone to loan you money.

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Sorry ladies of Los Angeles, if you were hoping to meet your Prince Charming by kissing a frog, you better search elsewhere. It’s against the law to kiss and lick frogs in LA. Yes, this is a real law. This law is as real as these other dumb laws in California:

Why It’s So Important To Be A Good Role Model For Your Family

Long Beach Bail Bonds

For any of you out there who have children, you know how crucial it is to be a solid role model for them. That means being honest, honorable, and a well-rounded family-person. Parents can’t afford to go out and drink every night, do drugs, avoid traffic violation tickets, get into arguments (that could lead to altercations), etc. Having a child means the consequences of such actions are more heartbreaking:

  • Your child could grow up without you in his or her life.
  • Your child, old enough to know what you had been up to, could make the serious decision to cut you out of their life.
  • Your child could also begin to start trouble and end up in jail, just like you.
  • Your family is no longer a family, and your home is no longer a home.

You can avoid all of this simply by looking and evaluating h...

Parents Will Be Parents: Always Concerned About Their Children

Long Beach Bail Bonds

As a parent, don’t you always have a concern for your children? Even if they are well behaved and honest, parents’ concern for their child continues to linger no matter what. It’s all part of being a parent.

It’s important to always be reminded that any trouble your kid gets into, you as a parent can be held responsible and liable. You may need to pay fines and fees – fees for educational programs required by court, legal fees, and others. To avoid this stress and pain, keep an eye on your child whenever you can, but do not be too overbearing. A part of growing up for a child will include some rebellion, but if they can do this in ways that don’t include legal trouble, you’re golden...

Know This Before Cosigning A Bail Bond

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Co-signing a bail bond is a huge responsibility and liability. You’re essentially assuming the consequences if the defendant does not make his or her payments, skips court, or possibly violate other terms of release that are dependent on the bail bond. We know you desperately just want to co-sign the bail bond because you’re sympathetic for your very close friend or relative, but you should really weigh certain things before signing off:

  • It is the cosigner’s duty to ensure the defendant appears in court and meets all other terms and conditions.
  • It is the cosigner’s duty to ensure the defendant does not violate any terms of his or her bail and release.
  • The cosigner may have to pledge collateral for the bond. This is most often property, electronics, jewelry, and vehicles...

It’s Okay To Ask For Parenting Help

Long Beach Bail Bonds

If you think your child needs more help than you are able or knowledgeable of to provide, do not hesitate to call for third party help, be it from another family member, a friend, or a professional. You want the best for your child and you want to help them in every way possible, but sometimes, it’s just not enough to come solely from you. Don’t be ashamed and don’t think you are not a suitable parent.

It would be worse to see your child end up in serious danger and trouble than to call in another person to help educate and “rehabilitate” them, wouldn’t it? Your child needs to be as responsive and receptive to positive influence and change in order for him or her to develop a goal-oriented, successful future.

Your concern for your child is natural – it’s loving and it shows yo...
