What to do When the Police Want to Question You

It doesn’t matter if it’s a phone call asking that you schedule an appointment or if officers knock on your door. Learning that the police want to talk to you is enough to strike terror into your heart, even if you haven’t done anything wrong.

When you learn that the police want to speak to you, you should forget anything you learned from procedural shows. They always imply that you should wait to get a lawyer, that’s a huge mistake.

The police can’t force you to talk to them without a lawyer and contrary to what popular culture might want you to believe, having a lawyer doesn’t automatically make you seem guilty.

Legally speaking, you’re not obligated to speak to the police unless they have presented you with a warrant...

When Minors Use a Fake ID

When Minors Use a Fake ID

Having a fake id is almost considered a right of passage. There are movies, books, and even songs that feature all sorts of adventures a young man or woman can get into once they’ve managed to acquire a fake id. Most of these adventures involve illegally purchasing alcohol or cigarettes.

Most of these stories don’t show the ugly truth about what would have happened if the main character had been caught using their fake id. The reality is that if you are using a fake id and the police find out about it, there will be some very real, very scary legal consequences.

Business and Professions Code 25661 BPC is the law that covers what happens to minors who possess a fake id. The law clearly states that in California, using an ID that isn’t their own for the purchase of items such as cigar...

California’s Stance on the Theft of Intellectual Property

California’s Stance on the Theft of Intellectual Property

no-collateral-bail-bonds-in-long-beach

These days, both large and small businesses rely heavily on intellectual property.

Cornell Law School defines intellectual property as, “any product of the human intellect that the law protects from unauthorized use by others.”

Investopedia elaborates on that definition and describes intellectual property as “a broad categorical description for the set of intangible assets owned and legally protected by a company from outside use or implementation without consent. An intangible asset is a non-physical asset that a company owns.”

Quick examples of intellectual property include:

  • Website content
  • Logos
  • Slogans
  • Sound recordings
  • Videos
  • Trademarks
  • Copyrights
  • Trade secrets
  • Photos
  • Blog posts
  • Social media posts

While there may be some confusion about the exact definition of intellectual ...

The Benefits Connected to Using Long Beach Bail Bonds

The Benefits Connected to Using Long Beach Bail Bonds

$500-down-bail-bonds-in-long-beach

Many people think bail is only a few thousand dollars. The truth is that the median bail is about $50,000, far more than the average person can afford. That’s where we come into the picture. In exchange for a ten percent fee, we’ll cover the entire price of your bail. That means that if your bail is set at $50,000, all you have to do is come up with $5,000.

Not having to pay the full $50,000 is just one of the benefits you’ll enjoy when you decide to use Long Beach Bail Bonds rather than posting the bail yourself.

Experience Helps

One of the things many people find is that posting bail, even a small amount of bail, is often overwhelming. The more bail you owe, the more overwhelming the experience becomes. We have over thirty years of experience...

Failure to Pay Legal Child Support Obligations in California

Failure to Pay Legal Child Support Obligations in California

low-income-bail-bonds-in-bell-gardens

Child support is always a touchy issue. There are a variety of reasons people use for failing to pay legal child support obligations in California. These reasons include:

  • That the amount is more than they can afford and they don’t have enough money left to live on
  • They don’t think their ex (or kids) are entitled to the money
  • They spent the money on other things
  • They paid the money but it has gotten lost in the system

The first thing you have to understand is that once the court has ordered a specific amount of child support to be paid, that is it. You are expected to make the complete payments and the payments should be made on time. Failing to do so is breaking the law.

If you can’t afford to pay the child support or if situations have changed and you no longer feel that the amou...

Be Prepared to Ask Your Bail Bonds Agent Some Questions

We don’t believe that the consultation should be a one-way conversation during which we ask all the questions and you provide answers. We want you to be comfortable with us which is why we encourage you to ask plenty of questions.

Earthquake Safety Tips

There are many great reasons to live in California. There’s also one huge drawback. In exchange for easy access to beaches and year-round wonderful weather, you always have to be prepared for an earthquake.

The good news is that most of the earthquakes we experiences are really small, little more than slight tremors that give people something to chat about. They seldom do more than cause a few things to fall off shelves. However, every once in a while, there is a massive earthquake.

Since no one really knows when a big earthquake will arrive or how bad the earthquake will be, it’s important that everyone is up to date on current earthquake safety tips.

Driving Drunk on Halloween

bell-gardens-bail-bonds

We have a tendency of thinking about Halloween as a holiday that is full of good-natured fun. It’s a holiday that allows us to wear crazy costumes, abandon our diets, and really cut loose. The only real risk we usually associate with the holiday is the need to drive carefully during the time frame that trick-or-treaters roam the streets.

What many of us don’t know is that Halloween is a holiday when many drivers overindulge and are legally drunk when they slide behind the wheel. Most of these drunk drivers are leaving Halloween parties.

College students in particular are prone to over drinking on Halloween. One research project revealed that the average college student usually drinks about 6.3 alcoholic beverages at Halloween parties. That’s about 1...
