No Child Left Behind

call-acton-bailbonds

As the weather begins to warms up again here in Southern California, we would like to remind parents that convenience is not always the better option, especially when it comes to your kids. It could be the line that defines whether you are a good or bad parent!

For example, you just picked up your 5 year old from pre-school. You need to make a quick stop at the store to buy toilet paper before you go home.

You have two scenarios:

1. Bring your child into the store with you and possibly deal with their crying, screaming, running around, nonstop talking, grabbing and breaking things, etc. Imagine the most nightmarish trip to the store.

2. Leave your child in the car and you will be in and out of the store in 10 minutes. Easy peasy!

Well, unless your child is 7 years old or older, you ...

What to Expect with the New Marijuana Laws of California

call-acton-bailbonds

As you know, California passed Prop 64 last November, making marijuana usage legal in California. However, as you might expect, the prop is not that simple to follow. There are details and complexities written within the prop and forthcoming laws. There are regulations and concerns that must be addressed.

Here is what you should know right now:

  • Anyone over the age of 21 can use, possess, and share up to one ounce of flowers or eight grams of concentrate of marijuana.
  • Anyone over the age of 21 can grow marijuana at home. What is tricky now is that a person cannot purchase a cannabis plant. Rather, they must receive it from another person who is already growing marijuana, and there must be no money transfer. In addition, no more than 6 plants may be grown at home at one time.
  • The state ...

Treat Bail Bond Payments Like You do Rent

call-acton-bailbonds

Choosing to post bail using a bail bond means:

    1. You pay less, overall
    2. You pay in increments over a custom payment plan
    3. You have an understanding, accommodating, and helpful bail agent

It does not mean that you should not prioritize bail bond payments. Keep track of what you owe and when. Also keep track of when you have made a payment. Look at your spending habits elsewhere. You may find that you need to re-work your budget so you can keep up with bail bond payments like you do your rent and utility bills.

Something you will want to keep an eye out for in the mail is your tax return. Hopefully this will be a rather hefty amount of money that you get back from the government. Instead of splurging this on a shopping spree, apply it towards your bail bond payments...

Advantages and Benefits to Using Bail Bonds

call-acton-bailbonds

It is easy to see the negatives when you are involved in a bail bond process, whether you are the one who needs out of jail or you are the one helping a loved one out. It is a terrible situation that no one wants to be in, so obviously seeing the light of the situation is pretty hard.

We here at Acton Bail Bond Store want to shed some more light on bail bonds to help you see the advantages and benefits of using bail to get out of jail.

  • Saving money: You are paying only 10% of the full bail amount, leaving you with that 90% to save or spend as you need.
  • Saving time: Cash bail requires 100% payment before the defendant can be released from jail. Gathering this money can take some time. With a bail bond, you pay smaller installments after the defendant’s release.
  • Security and convenience:...

What Happens On Social Media Does Not Stay There, It Comes Back for You

call-acton-bailbonds

So much good has come from the dominance of social media in our lives: we remain connected with friends and family, we have more ways to access news, and we get involved with important matters. At the same time, quite a bit of bad can come from social media. Sometimes, this bad comes from our decision to post a status update or photos, ones that we do not initially think to be something that can be used against us.

For instance:

You are suspected of shooting someone. The police go back on your Instagram and find a photo, posted quite some time ago, of you with the same gun that was used in the crime. That’s incriminating evidence.

You post a photo of your initials carved into a tree. This tree is in a national park and you forgot that defacing nature in national parks is a crime...

Building Puzzles: A United Family

call-acton-bailbonds

It is so easy for loved ones to encounter argument after argument, disagreement after disagreement, when one of the pack is arrested. However, this is not the time for that. As much as possible, avoid arguments and disagreements, and instead find the opportunities to band together and show a more united and supportive front than ever before. Would you be so surprised at how one person’s arrest can have the power to bring everyone closer together, possibly even friends and family who are nearly estranged?

Learning that a loved one is arrested leaves a heavy and disheartening feeling like no other. They let you down, but maybe you feel you let them down. You do not know what he or she is thinking as he or she sits in jail...
