Applying for a bail bond is a quick and simple process, but there is no room for error. A bail bond can just as easily be revoked as it is granted, and obviously, no one wants that.
Here are 3 important tips to follow when getting a bail bond:
- Hire a bail bonds agent and company in good standing. Look into the services they offer, what they charge, and their reputation. You want someone who is not just doing this for a paycheck, but someone who will be a reliable, supportive resource and be on your team to help you no matter what.
- Know the exact contact information, address and phone number, of the defendant. The bail bond company and the court will want this information when they need to contact the defendant...
Grey’s Anatomy recently aired an episode where a young boy accidentally shot his friend because the two found a gun in the home; the gun belonged to one of the parents. No one ever intended any harm, but the gun was poorly stored at home. This episode prompted us to highlight California’s gun storage laws, laws that do not get enough attention as do other gun-related laws.
California gun owners must keep their firearms locked away in a safe and secure place where others, especially children, cannot get to it. Though it is not a law, but rather a safety measure, gun owners are also encouraged to remove all ammo from the gun. If a loaded gun is kept in an unlocked dresser that any youth or child can access, then the owner is committing criminal storage of a firearm...
The 8th Amendment of the United States Constitution protects us from excessive bail (as well as excessive fines and cruel and unusual punishment). This amendment is an order towards the government to now use their power to impose unduly harsh penalties on criminal defendants. But even with this amendment, many bail prices (particular those for the most serious crimes) sound excessive anyway. This is a matter we at San Francisco County Bail Bond Store cannot change, but it is a matter we can assist you with, if you or a loved one have been arrested and granted bail.
First, no matter what bail price the judge has ordered, know that San Francisco County Bail Bond Store can help you out. There is no minimum bail price in order to qualify for a bail bond...
Immediately after someone is arrested, they will be booked. This booking process is to document the person’s information to have on record, creating an official arrest record. Here’s what happens:
- The defendant’s personal information will be taken, such as name, date of birth, height, weight, etc.
- The crime for which the suspect was arrested for will be taken.
- The defendant will take a series of mug shots.
- The defendant will relinquish clothes and small personal items they had to the police; they will not be thrown out, but instead stored then returned if and when the defendant posts bail.
- Fingerprints will be taken.
- The police will do a full body search, where the defendant will have to remove their clothes.
- The police will search the databases for any outstanding warrants for an...

You can be arrested for robbing a store, running a red light, being drunk in public, and kidnapping another person. Crimes like these, and punishment, is obvious. But did you know that in some places of California, it can be illegal for a man to kiss a woman, or it can be illegal if you’re not wearing a matching jacket and pants? You read that right, and yes, that is outrageous. But believe it or not, those are laws written in the official rule books. Here are some more of California’s looniest laws:
- Women may not drive in a house coat. Alert the fashion police!
- No animals may mate within 1,500 feet of a school or place of worship. So who get’s punished if two free birds hatch eggs in a nest on a tree right outside the school?
- Pinball machines are illegal in El Monte. Perhaps t...
Getting arrested once is nothing to brag about. But getting arrested a second, third, or fourth time is also nothing to brag about. (And for the record, getting arrested 5 times or more – also nothing to brag about). If you’ve been arrested at least once before, then fortunately you are familiar with the whole arraignment and bail process already. But wait – is having a pre-existing criminal record a problem with the bail bond company? It shouldn’t be, unless you were very uncooperative during the first time. Is applying for a bail bond a second time going to be a problem with the bail bond company? It shouldn’t be – it isn’t at Bail Bonds.
If you’ve used a bail bond to get out of jail once before, and made your payments on time and went to court as ordered, then there won’t be...

Budgeting money is something you should be doing regularly, and every time you get involved with something new you regularly need to pay for, you should re-visit your budgeting and make any necessary adjustments. So, you probably already allocate funds for rent, utilities, groceries, gas, and a bit for personal and leisure spending. The rest of your money goes into savings.
Now, what will happen to your funds when you decide to provide financial help for a loved one’s bail bond? Bail bond payments should not be missed – they’re as important as rent and utility bills, if not more, considering it directly relates to someone’s freedom out of jail.
Here are some tips on how to look at your budget:
- Cook more meals at home and eat out less; when you do eat out, skip appetizers and dess...
