People With A Criminal Past Can Always Find Work

As we always make sure to reassure our clients, being arrested will never be “the end” for you. For many, getting arrested is simply a mishap. It will go on your record but it will not haunt you for the rest of your life. People with a criminal past are very much capable of being granted a loan, of getting a job, and getting an apartment or home.

For example, recently it was announced that the popular ridesharing service, Uber, has eased their screening process on their drivers who have a criminal record. According to Uber, this move of theirs is to closer align with the state’s Prop. 47, which was passed in 2014. The recently passed proposition redefines some non-violent felonies as misdemeanors (such as petty theft and forgery), giving offenders a “second chance...

Bail Is An Option With Tax Money

Bail is ridiculously expensive, period. Most people won’t easily have enough money to post bail on their own. Even getting extra money back from the IRS during tax season won’t be enough money to bail out of jail. However, that extra tax return money might be enough to afford a bail bond from Bellflower Bail Bond Store; a bail bond is an alternative method to bailing out of jail, and they only cost 10-15% of the full bail amount.

The cost of bail bonds will be paid on a payment plan, meaning the defendant will be released from jail before the entire 10-15% is paid off. But the main catch that levels this against paying the full bail price directly with the court is that the 10-15% paid to the bail bond company is not refundable at the end of the case, whereas 100% of the bail that is ...

Bail Is Not Tax Deductible, Sorry

Although it might seem tax deductible because it’s a payment going to the government, bail is not tax deductible. Bail is a guarantee (like a bribe, essentially) to get a defendant to appear in court for a crime they are accused of committing. As long as the defendant is compliant with this and his or her other bail bond terms and conditions are met, then they will get their bail money refunded back to them.

In the case that they choose to bail out of jail using a third party bail bond agency, then they will be losing a little bit of money, in the longer run. The defendant pays the bail bond agency 10-15% of their full bail amount and the bail bond agency will then cover the remainder of the price for the time being. The defendant will need to go to court and respect release conditions...

Bail Bonds Work And Artesia Bail Bond Store Can Prove It

Bail bonds as a way of jail release are working. What do we mean by that? We mean that by releasing a defendant from jail, with payment, we are giving the defendant some of his or her life back. They can go to work, hang with friends and family, live comfortably as possible at home. They need to show up for court and make bail bond payments, which can come from themselves or friends or family on their behalf. The defendants are well aware of the risks and consequences they face if they disobey these bail conditions. Because of that, they are more likely to obey those terms, less likely to go against them and cause more trouble.

By getting arrested, the defendant has experienced first-hand everything they can lose in a heartbeat. They’ve gone to jail...

Pay For Your Bail Bond, Not Strained Relationships

Getting arrested can be viewed as a selfish thing to do. How many people are affected by one person’s arrest? Countless friends and family members, coworkers and peers, and even tax-payers feel the effects of someone’s arrest.

Sure the one person who is arrested faces the scariest consequences and the toughest recovery period. But it’s those closest to them who also deal with consequences as well. They deal with this strain in their relationship. Trust can be broken and whether it can be put all back together is an unanswered question. Some relationships unfortunately are never the same as they used to be. Others are able to rebuild their relationships again...
