ost people have a lot of questions and concerns when it comes to dealing with bail. This is largely because most people don’t know a whole lot about bail in the first place. After all, they never expected to need bail someone. Still, that doesn’t mean that someone they know will never get arrested. In California alone, thousands of people are arrested every single day.

One of the big concerns that people have when dealing with bail, is what happens when they miss a payment or miss a court date? Everyone understands that missing either one of those would not be good, but they aren’t sure exactly how bad it is. Does it lead to harsh consequences, or does the person just receive a slap on the wrist?

Transporting Marijuana in California

N

early four years ago, Californians voted to legalize the recreational use of marijuana in the state. That law went into effect in 2018 and as such, there is still some confusion about what is and isn’t legal when it comes to marijuana in the state of California. People are still unsure about what can and cannot get them into trouble when it comes to the drug.

While the drug is legalized for recreational use, it is heavily regulated. If a person doesn’t follow the rules and laws, then they can find themselves in some serious trouble even though they thought they were doing something legal. A big thing that people need to worry about when dealing with marijuana is transporting it.

or the most part, surprises are nice and enjoyable. However, there are some surprises out there that most people would rather avoid. A perfect example of this would be a friend or family member getting arrested. As if that wasn’t bad enough on its own, some bail bond companies make things worse by adding hidden fees into the mix to provide an extra surprise for their clients.

Hidden fees are a sneaky tactic used by bad bail bond companies to make more money off of their clients. These companies take advantage of people in need to make a quick and easy buck, which is why they need to be avoided. You need to be careful when picking a bail bond company to help you with your loved one’s arrest.

veryone knows what trespassing is, however, there can be a bit of a gray area for people when it comes to certain locations. Some locations make sense, such as stores and restaurants. Some locations, on the other hand, seem impossible to close. How can you close a location that doesn’t have a ceiling, walls, or even fences? This is what many people wonder when they hear that parks are closed.

This is all the more prominent as people grapple with constant closures of places like these. A big talking point right now is the closure of state beaches, which is becoming more and more upsetting as the weather warms. People want to go and cool off with their favorite beach activities, but it isn’t safe to do so...

Where to Find Answers about Bail

W

hen you have questions about a subject, one that you need to deal with, you look for answers. The best place to find answers are from a professional, but sometimes talking to a professional can be inconvenient. Most professionals only want to talk during normal business hours, but that isn’t very helpful when you suddenly find yourself in need of their help outside of those hours.

This is often what happens when someone is arrested. The arrest never occurs at a convenient time and suddenly you find yourself needing to know more about bail in the middle of the night. You don’t want to wait until morning to get answers. The longer you wait, the more time your loved one spends behind bars.

This is why our bail agents are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week...

Why Can’t Minors Be Bailed Out of Jail?

ail is a confusing and unknown subject to a lot of people out there. Most people don’t think about one of their friends or family members getting arrested, so they don’t even consider how they would bail that person out. In most instances, this is just for adults. Many parents may not even consider the possibility of their child being arrested.

Unfortunately, sometimes kids do push the boundaries of the law too far and wind up in big trouble. This is when parents begin to freak out. What are they going to do? How do they help their child? No one wants someone that they care about to be stuck behind bars, and this is especially true when that someone is a child. However, can minors even be bailed out?
