Being An Immigrant In The U.S.


Living as an immigrant (especially an undocumented one) is pretty terrifying, we bet. Every day. But, immigrants do have special rights that protect them, to some degree. And we can’t stress enough how imperative it is to know these rights.

You have the right to remain silent. You do not have to discuss your immigration or citizenship status with the police, immigration agents, or other officials. You do not have to answer questions regarding your birthplace or how you entered the U.S. However, there are some exceptions (locations, travelers) to this.

Carry your immigration documents with you at all times. Present them to officers who request to see them. If you do not have them, tell them you will remain silent and not answer any questions. Never lie.

If you are arrested, you won’t au...

The Secret To Bailing Your Loved One Out Of Jail


The secret to bailing your loved one out of jail really isn’t much of a secret. It just happens to be hidden in plain sight, under common sense, if you will. It’s not about the cost or the crime or the location. It’s about finding the best bail bond company and agent that will help you the most.

All bail bond companies have the same service of providing clients with a 10-15% bail bond that will get a person out of jail. But not every bail bond company will be as communicative, responsive, fast, non-judgmental, and confidential as you’d like. This really makes a big difference in your feelings about the company and the outcome of the bail bond.

So, the secret to bailing your loved one out of jail is researching and finding the best, most reliable bail bond company, such as Carson ...

We Get What You’re Going Through


No, this is not part of our standardized customer service procedures. Our team, our family here at Hawaiian Gardens Bail Bond Store really does understand what you’re going through. While not all of us (120+ agents and representatives) have been in the exact same situations you are in, some of us have.

Yep, some of our own have had loved ones call them from jail asking for bail bond help. These particular agents and representatives of ours have gone through the same application process you are about to go through – 30 or so minutes of paperwork finalization and then a couple hours of waiting until the defendant is released. This is followed up with daily checkups on the defendant, constant reminders of court dates, and making sure each bail bond payment is paid on time...

This Could Happen To Anyone, Including You


There are so many things in life we can prepare for (and that’s great), but there are some things we cannot foresee, such as suddenly needing to bail someone who you love out of jail. Just like we tell ourselves that “I’ll never be one to get into a car accident” or “I won’t be a victim of identity theft,” we tell ourselves that we’ll never have to pay for bail. Yet, here you are, in this predicament. This could happen to anyone and as fate would have it, it happened to you.

It’s not your fault that you’re in this situation, really. But now you must deal with this burden, but you don’t have to do so alone. Obviously, you don’t expect to have to pay for bail ever so you’re really not prepared to do so. But even if you can do so on your own, know that you don’t have to...

What Is Acceptable Bail Bond Collateral?


A common necessity to secure a bail bond is to get collateral for it. The collateral is pledged, kind of like a ransom, if you will. As long as the defendant goes to court as scheduled, collateral for the bail bond will be returned to the owner. However, if the defendant fails his or her release terms, the collateral will be taken. So, it’s up to the defendant (and the person who is putting up collateral) to stand by their word and go to court so as to not jeopardize anything!

    The most common items put up for collateral are:

  • Real estate – generally, this must be property you own completely or at least have a majority equity in. Property that is still under mortgage is usually not accepted.
  • Vehicles – like real estate, this is generally vehicles that you own entirely, not still owe paym...

California, Marijuana, And The Law


As lax as the police and the people might seem about marijuana in California, the drug is still technically not legalized in the state of California. That means you can be arrested and charged for growing, owning, distributing/ selling, and smoking marijuana unless you have a card, permit, or license for medical reasons. The severity of any consequences would be partially based on the amount of marijuana that is found in your possession.

Yes, many people can still “get away” with smoking pot. In fact, San Francisco somewhat embraces the 420 “holiday” by allowing thousands of smokers to gather and enjoy their herb on Hippie Hill. The city only asks people to do so peacefully in the company of others (don’t get into any fights) and to pick up after themselves at the end of the day...

Bail Bond Agents Are Mean, Scary, And Intimidating – That’s A Myth!

A Criminal History Won’t Necessarily Prohibit You From Voting In The Next Election


With the presidential election of 2016 coming up next year (you’re definitely hearing more and more about it in the news), you might be wondering if you or someone in particular would be eligible to vote. The reason you are not sure: because of the existence of a criminal history. Well, having a criminal background won’t immediately stop someone from being allowed to vote, but there are some rules.

Referring only to status within the justice system, a person may vote as long as they:

  • Are not in prison during election
  • Not on parole for the conviction of a felony during election
  • Are mentally competent, as determined by the court

So, looking at this from the other side, a person may not vote if they are imprisoned or on parole during the election...
