Lots of People Have Questions about Bail

Finding out that someone does not know much about bail is not as uncommon as one might assume.

Time is What You Are Missing on TV and in Jail!

We all know by now that what happens on TV shows and movies is not exactly how things would happen in real life. When it comes to crime dramas, the storylines are often over exaggerated because the producers want ratings. Similar situations in real life will not be as dramatic as they are on TV. There is also a lot of tricky, detailed, and confusing information that gets left out from the entertainment versions.

On TV, what you do see is someone getting arrested for a crime, then that person appearing in court. What you often do not see is what happens in between those two events; the bail process. A defendant can actually post bail after they are booked and arraigned...

Learn about Bail Bonds First

Whoever said that bail bonds are sketchy and for the lower class was wrong. Bail bonds are just as legitimate and equal as cash bail. Of course, there are different contingencies and requirements for both, but they both get the job done. In fact, even rich people and celebrities use bail bonds rather than cash bail.

Truth be told, bail bonds are the more common method to posting bail. Reasons more people choose bail bonds can be that they like the idea of having a professional bail agent assisting them through the entire process. They want the payment plan that bail bonds come with. They would rather pay 10% of the bail, rather than 100% it...

Think of all the ways you can pay for something: cash, credit, debit, or checks. That is plenty of options to pay for a piece of clothing, or for a bail bond.

Rainy Weather Driving Precautions

Rainy days are still ahead California, whether you are in Northern California where rainfall is more abundant, or you are in Southern California where it happens less often. Driving habits need to be changed when it is raining versus when it is a dry day to ensure road safety. Here are some helpful rainy weather driving tips that will help protect you and others from harm’s way.

• The road is most slippery on the first day of rain.
• Drive slower and leave more space than usual between your car and the car ahead.
• Brake earlier than normal so the car behind you has extra time to brake as well.
• Make sure all car lights are working: headlights, taillights, signal lights, brake lights, and high beams.
• Make sure your horn is working.
• Check your tire treads; if they need changing, cha...

Benefits and Risks of Bail Bond Co-Signers

millbrae-bailbonds1

Dealing with an arrest is an incredibly stressful and tense time, not just for the individual, but for their loved ones as well. There will be some bickering, but there should be mostly figuring out how to get through this situation together. Multiple parties will be involved in some way or another: the defendant, a bail bond company like Millbrae Bail Bond Store, employers who may need to know, friends, family, a lawyer, and a co-signer.

This all sounds pretty straight-forward, but not to the co-signer. What is a co-signer, and what do they do?

A co-signer is needed for the bail bond. The co-signer assumes responsibility of the defendant to see that they show up for their court appointments...

No Resolution Is Too Late to Start

It is not January 1 anymore, but you can still come up with some 2017 resolutions. It is never too late to set goals and commit to them. Whether it is something you try every year, like eating better and working out more, or something that is quite the challenge, like breaking bad habits and putting yourself in uncomfortable yet good-for-you situations.

Touching more on the latter example, say you are one to drink and drive. You have never been caught and you have never blown it, but frankly, you cannot keep doing this. So this is the year you kick that bad habit of feeling invincible when you really are not. In addition to not drinking and driving, consider forcing yourself to drink less...
