Here Is Why You Need a Constant Dose of Positivity

artesia-bail-bonds-960

Positivity goes a long way” may be cliché but truthfully, it is very true. Positivity has the power to really turn a bad situation into a better one at the very least, even if it is not the best. Frankly, that should be good enough. So if you are pissed off after learning that your husband or wife is in jail and now you feel obligated to help bail or her out of jail, turn your scowl up just a little bit and look at bail like this:

Your loved one is coming back home.

Obviously, if your loved one has been arrested, they are going to sit in jail and they are going to be there until they can bail out. Your kids will start asking where Mom or Dad is, and it is painful to figure out how to tell them. It is painful just knowing your loved one is in jail, alone, and miserable...

Save Your Summer, Do Not Get Arrested!

artesia-bail-bonds-893

Summer is nearing and for college students, this is the best time of the year. No more lectures, no more all-nighters studying, and no more teachers. It is going to be all parties during the vacation.

However, the fun has to have some boundaries, and the biggest boundary that we are talking about is the law. We get plenty of calls for students who have been arrested for various offenses ranging from drinking and driving, to trespassing and more. We hate receiving these calls because it means you are in serious trouble, and you are a young adult. It is a scary situation, and some college campuses respond much harsher to a student’s offense than other college campuses.

Artesia Bail Bond Store will do their best to make these situations as easy as possible by bailing defendants out of jail

Worried About Your Upcoming Background Check?

artesia-bail-bonds-853

In applying for a loan, a job, or an apartment, you are pretty familiar with the interview and background check process. It is a long waiting game for you to be cleared and given the thumbs up. Have you ever wondered what banks, employers, and landlords look at during the background check? Do you have a point on your criminal record that you are worried about? Will they even see it, and will it affect their decision?

For background checks, offenses have a 7-year lifespan, any offense that happened over 7 years ago will not appear on the background check; unless it resulted in a conviction. Any records that have been sealed or expunged will not appear on the background check; banks, employers, and landlords will not have access and authority to see these hidden records.

Many times, an exis...

Bail Is Not Tax Deductible, but Artesia Bail Bond Store Considers Your Finances

artesia-bail-bonds-743

Although tax season just ended, and taxes are the last thing you want to think about right now, it is important for us to acknowledge that bail is not tax deductible. It is something we must answer because many people ask this question. People are arrested right and left and with such a large amount of money going towards their bail, they wonder if they can write it off in their taxes. Unfortunately, no.

You are paying the bail bond company who is helping to get your loved one out of jail. This involves the government, obviously, but bail is really a guarantee/ surety that the defendant will return to court as promised. This promise to return is a part of their release conditions. It is not tax-deductible.

If money is your concern, Artesia Bail Bond Store can help resolve some of this...

You’re Not Invincible; Anyone Can Go To Jail!

artesia-bail-bonds-730

You’re young and you might like to have a lot of fun. You might like to party, drink, hang out with friends, stay out late, and act as if you are invincible. Many people just like you find themselves arrested and thrown in jail for offenses related to alcohol and partying. Often they’re fairly minor offenses, but sometimes they’re way more serious than receiving just 24 hours in jail.

Ask the people who you are sitting next to in jail how they got there. See how many tell you that they were drinking and driving or got into an altercation after a night of drinking. The rest of the stories are probably ones that you don’t want to go into details about.

Know this; all those people sitting in jail with you probably never thought they’d actually end up arrested...
