Can You Use Your Tax Return for Bail?

When Getting Arrested Might Actually Be Funny

san-francisco-bailbonds43

Usually, getting arrested is no laughing matter, but maybe one day it will be both a laughing matter and a “are you serious?” matter. We are talking about a wild case where a person is arrested for committing the most outrageous, silly crimes in California. These crimes come from laws that really leave us scratching our heads. Here are some, for your enjoyment.

Any car that does not have a driver cannot go faster than 60 miles per hour. 30 miles per hour without a driver is okay then?
Women may not drive in a housecoat. It must be so unfashionable.
Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship. Did someone make sure to tell the animals that?
Ice cream may not be eaten while standing on the sidewalk. Sorry, kids.
One may not use one’...

The Cost of a First-Time DUI in California

san-francisco-bailbonds42

$1,000. That is the low end of the average cost of what a first time DUI can cost you in California. Knowing this, wouldn’t you rather pay $20 for a Lyft or Uber home from the bar? Let’s break that figure down.

Insurance – This is the highest DUI related cost. Insurance will go up year after year after a DUI.
Towing and Storage – Your car is impounded and to get it back, you will have to pay a fine.
DUI classes – This will cost around the same as the towing and storage.
Fines and Attorney Fees – You will be going to court for that DUI, so you will want a good lawyer to help protect, and fight for you.
Driver’s License – After a DUI, your license is revoked. You will have to pay to get it back, once you are allowed to get it back.

Again, $1,000 is the low end of the DUI sp...

Let’s Talk About Sanctuary Cities

san-francisco-bailbonds34

The Trump Presidency has brought fear to undocumented immigrants now more than ever. With such debate, many cities in the U.S. have vowed to protect its immigrants, and these cities have declared themselves “sanctuary cities.”

Sanctuary cities include: San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, and New York. An unofficial count identifies approximately 300 U.S. cities, towns, and counties as sanctuary cities. To protect undocumented immigrants from deportation, they limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities. For example, the authorities may not be allowed to ask a person about their immigration status. These cities will also help undocumented immigrants get education and healthcare.

As much as cities will do what they can to protect undocumented immigrants, there can still be trou...

san-francisco-bailbonds66

Life is far from perfect, no one has a perfect life. At some point, everyone gets in trouble, from cutting curfew or not doing homework, to doing something wrong at work or speeding. That right there is already an indication that no one is perfect, and life is not either. The good thing is that we manage to recover from these negative moments. It’s certainly possible to get life right back on track, even something as extreme as getting arrested.

Most people who are arrested are given the opportunity to post bail. Bail can be posted with cash or with a bail bond. The latter of which is more affordable and ideal for most people, yet still very much valid. Posting bail is the immediate first step toward resolving this situation and getting things back to normal.
