Know Your Rights When You Are Arrested

call-valencia-bailbonds

Back in 1966, the Miranda Rights did not exist. That means the police were not required to tell arrestees that they had the right to a lawyer and the right to remain silent. Some defendants would confess to a crime they did not commit because they were simply tired of the questioning, which could have included tactics that are considered antagonizing. These are false, coerced confessions.

Finally the law changed, and the Miranda Rights were introduced to prevent those kinds of confessions and to enlighten defendants of their full rights.

Most defendants also have the right to bail, but some are not so lucky since a judge can deny bail to defendants who are accused of heinous crimes or are considered especially dangerous.

Did You Know You Might Not Need Collateral

call-valencia-bailbonds

There are a lot of places out there that require clients to put something up as collateral when a lot of money is involved. This can include getting a bail bond. Bailing a loved one out of jail can be a costly venture, which is why some bail bond required collateral. If you do not know, collateral is something of value equal to the amount of money being lent, or in the case of a bail bond, the amount of the bond itself. If the client does not pay all of the money owed, than the company keeps the collateral.

Some people might find this a bit alarming, but do not worry. There are bail bond companies out there that do not require collateral, companies like Valencia Bail Bond Store...

About Those Holiday Travel Plans…

call-valencia-bailbonds

Holiday travel is inching closer and closer and with your loved one’s recent arrest, you may be wondering how that might affect your plans. Is your loved one allowed to travel while out on bail?

The answer to that question will vary. First of all, it is up to the judge to decide whether or not the defendant will be allowed to travel. Secondly, the judge may allow travel, but impose additional restrictions. For example, if the judge allows the defendant to travel, it may be decided that he or she can only travel within the state. Whether your loved one is cleared for holiday travel or not, he or she must return to show up in court as scheduled. You may have had holiday travel plans set since summer, but court obligations will not be moved around to accommodate that trip.

When Being Greedy During the Holidays Is Justified

call-valencia-bailbonds

Believe it or not, there may be exceptions to the whole giving concept of the holiday spirit, where instead, you need to be greedy for yourself. At first, your loved ones may not understand, but when you explain yourself, then they will completely understand. Then they may be in a giving mood and decide to help you out.

The reason you need to be a little selfish this holiday season and not buy them gifts like you normally would, is so you can pay off your bail bond and ensure that you can stay out of jail. If you miss a payment, your bail bond will be revoked and you will be taken back into custody.

Since you are paying a bail bond rather than cash bail, you are paying 90% less. However, you do not have all the money in the world, so you still need to carefully budget your finances...

Before You Book a Holiday Vacation….

call-valencia-bailbonds

As you are already planning travel arrangements for the upcoming holidays, keep in mind the scheduling of that one family member who faces some much despised, but very important, court appointments. They recently bailed out of jail and are adjusting their life around court appointments and other mandates.

A defendant can generally travel while they are out on bail, as long as they are not breaking any rules that the judge had set. For example, the judge may say that a defendant has curfew or cannot travel outside of the state, or the judge may not impose any travel restrictions at all. Whether they can travel far or not, they must appear for their court appointments, no matter what. Missing an appointment will put their bail bond in jeopardy.

Still confused a little bit on bail bonds a...

Definition of a Co-Signer

call-valencia-bailbonds

The role of a co-signer is to provide their legal obligation to be financially responsible for another person’s dues if that person fails to make good on those dues.
