In California, all bail bonds start out as 10% of the person’s bail. This means that if your loved one’s bail is set at $10,000, his or her bail bond will only cost $1,000. This is the standard price set by the state of California, however, some bail bond companies can offer you a discount.

At San Bernardino Bail Bond Store, we are able to offer qualified clients a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond. What this means is, instead of paying 10% of the bail, you only pay 8%. If we use the same bail from before, the new price of the bail bond would be $800 with this discount. To qualify for this discount, you must be one of the following:

  • A union member
  • A member of the military
  • A member of AARP
  • A homeowner
  • Have a private attorney

If you meet one of those requirements, then we can give you the discount.

On top of that discount, all of our clients can pay their bail bond off with a personalized payment plan.

“How Much Does Bail Cost & How Do I Post Bail?”

  • What’s better; a bail agent or a bail bondsman?
  • These two titles may sound different but they really mean the same thing. A bail agent is a bail bondsman and vice versa.

  • How much does a bail bond cost?
  • Pricing is dependent on the amount of the bail. In California, bail bonds companies charge 10% of the bail price. If your loved one’s bail is $10,000, then it will cost $1,000 to bail him out using a bail bonds company.

  • Do you offer discounts?
  • Yes. At San Bernardino Bail Bond Store we can offer a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond if a co-signer is a member of the military, AARP, is a homeowner, or if the client has a private attorney. With this discount, instead of paying $1,000 for the same bond, you only have to pay $800.

  • What is a co-signer?
  • A co-signer is anyone who is willing to sign for your loved one’s release. The signer is promising that all the money will be paid and that their loved one will go to all of their court dates. A co-signer takes responsibility for their loved one.

  • How do I make payments?
  • We accept a number of different payment methods at San Bernardino Bail Bond Store. We accept cash, checks and most major credit cards. We also have the ability to accept payments online, over the phone, or in person at an office.

  • How much do I have to pay?
  • Again, cost depends on the price of the bail itself. Initially you need to pay 10% of the bail. Depending on your information, we may be able to offer discounts.

  • With interest, how much do I have to pay?
  • At San Bernardino Bail Bond Store we do not charge interest, you only have to pay the 10%.

  • How much do I have to put up front?
  • Again, pricing varies from case to case and depends vastly on the people who are co-signing the bail bond.

  • How long does it take for my loved one to be released?

  • Yes, we can. If you think there might be a warrant out for your arrest, just call San Bernardino Bail Bond Store and we will see if you do indeed have a warrant.

  • Can you bail my friend in Nevada out of jail?

  • Do you do immigration bonds?
  • No. There are companies that specialize in those kinds of bonds.

  • What happens if I do not bail out my friend or family member?
  • Your loved one stays in jail until he is either found innocent and released or found guilty and sentenced. Until then your loved one has to go to all court appearances in an orange jumpsuit which does not look good to the court.

  • If I cannot bail somebody out immediately, up to how many days do I have to be able to bail them out of jail?
  • There is no time limit to bailing a friend or family member out of jail. Your loved one can be bailed out of jail until he or she has been sentenced.

  • What happens if I miss a payment?
  • If you happen to miss a payment, it is not a huge deal. If you know in advance that you are going to be late on a payment, let us know.

  • It depends on your individual situation. We customize our payment plans to work with your budget and situation.

  • Will I receive a statement every month?

  • Collateral is something of equal value to the bail bond that the co-signer puts up to cover the bond. If the client fails to pay for the bail bond, then the company takes whatever was put up as collateral.

  • Can I use a payment plan to pay for the bail bond?

Yes. We create payment plans for all of our clients to help make paying for the bail bond easier. We will work with you to create a customized payment plan that fits into your personal budget.

You Are Selfish for Getting Arrested

call-adelanto-bail-bonds

We can think of a hundred reasons why you should never be arrested, why you should stay out of trouble, but to us, the most important one is that you would miss out on so many moments with your friends and family members. Holidays, birthdays, celebrations, milestones, etc. How can you bear to think about what you would miss over the months you would be serving in jail? Your loved ones want you with them, not in jail.

Getting arrested is actually quite a selfish act, because even though you are the one doing the hard time, your friends and family members are suffering almost as much as you are. They do not want you to go through this because they are right behind you. They do not want you to miss the fun they are having, the memories they are making. Knowing you are struggling and unhappy makes them unhappy too. It hurts them to see you in jail.

The time you miss with friends and family because you are in a jail cell, is time you cannot afford to miss. You can afford bail, so bail out and get as much of that time in as possible.

We want make sure you do not miss any more family functions. Family values are one of our core values as a family-owned company, and we will see to it that you benefit from our bail bonds help as much as possible.

Adelanto Bail Bond Store will help you with bail bonds. Talk to a professional team member at Adelanto Bail Bond Store by chatting online or calling 866-736-6977 .

Things You Should and Should Not Do In the Presence of the Police

call-adelanto-bail-bonds

Being on your best behavior should be obvious when you are in the presence of a police officer. If you do not have anything to hide, you do not want to give the police any reason to stare at you longer than a quick glance.

When you are the actual subject of police officers, when they are conversing with you directly, you need to “suit up” and really keep yourself together. You do not want to make the situation any worse.

    • Keep your hands where the officers can see them.
    • Do not make any sudden movements.
    • Do not run away.
    • Do not get angry and become verbal or physical.
    • Do take note of the time and place this is happening.
    • Get the officer’s name, badge number, and patrol car number and/ or license plate.
    • Take information from any witnesses.
    • You may deny the police when they wish to search your belongings and property that is out of plain sight. They will need to get a warrant.
    • Remain mature, responsible, and be polite.
    • If you are being arrested, ask why. You have the right to know.

You might think that the police have all the power, but you, as a citizen, have power too. It is a matter of knowing those fine lines.

If you end up behind bars, Adelanto Bail Bond Store will help you protect your right to bail. We provide customizable, low monthly rate payment plans for our bail bonds. We are here to see that each defendant is given the same rights and opportunities as everyone else, including you.

There Are Laws Regarding Gun Storage. Did You Know That?

call-victorville-bail-bonds

All kinds of laws surround California gun owners. There are laws for purchasing and selling guns and there are obviously laws for how guns are used. There are even laws for storing guns, which are no less important to know than all of the other laws about guns are. Storage laws are primarily meant to keep children and strangers from accessing the guns and potentially firing them.

In California, it is illegal to store a loaded gun in a place where a child can find and reach it.It is a misdemeanor crimeto store a loaded gun in a place where a child can access it, which punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. If the incident escalates to where a person is injured or killed, the owner can be put in jail for a few years and fined $10,000. However, the worst punishment in this situation is the injuries sustained, or the death of an innocent person, because the gun was irresponsibly stored.

If you are a gun owner, be responsible and follow the laws for owning a gun. Donot misuse it and we certainly hopethat any serious incidents never occur. However, if you find yourself arrested, Penny Bail Bonds may be able to bail you out of jail with an affordable bail bond. Keep us in mind.

Bail Is No Different For Celebrities

call-victorville-bail-bonds

Everyone thinks that celebrities get special treatment and many times, it’s true. But in serious times, it’s not – celebrities get treated in just the same manner as every other person. And by serious times, we mean when they end up arrested. Yes, even celebrities get arrested for breaking the law and just like anyone else, they appear in an arraignment hearing and even stand trial.

Singer Chris Brown was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna. His bail was set at $50,000, which he posted. Brown was given 5 years of probation, which he violated, resulting in probation being revoked. He was then ordered to remain in jail for a month because of his probation violation.

Olympian Oscar Pistorious was arrested for killing his girlfriend and his bail was set at $1 million.

NFL player Aaron Hernandez was arrested for murder in 2012; he was denied bail.

Celebrities do not get faster bail treatment, nor do they get cheaper bail than they deserve. Celebrities are served bail just as the judge would serve bail to any other arrestee, and they can choose to pay bail directly or hire a bail agent for a bail bond – which many celebrities do too.

If you need a bail bond for a loved one, you can get that at Victorville Bail Bonds. Get in touch with an Victorville Bail Bonds agent online or call 866-736-6977 .

Understanding Background Checks

call-san-bernardino-bail-bonds

Whenever you apply for a job, a loan, a new home, even a gun, you’re probably going to undergo a background check. You may not give this too much thought, especially if you have a squeaky clean record, but it still might be good to know anyway, what shows up on a background check, and what doesn’t.

    ● Felonies and misdemeanor arrests and convictions appear on criminal background checks.
    ● Any convictions more than 7 years old will not appear.
    ● Any arrests and convictions as a juvenile should not show, as those lines are sealed upon turning 18.
    ● Convictions where a pardon was granted will not appear.

Having points on your criminal record should not be the deciding factor as to whether or not you get a loan or a job; plenty of people with criminal histories find great employment and homes. Don’t let your criminal background, if you have one, bring you down.

Penny Bail Bonds can help you begin the “recovery” process of your criminal activity – if you or a loved one has been arrested, Penny Bail Bonds can help post bail with a bail bond and a low monthly rate payment plan . This gets you out of jail and back home so you can start re-focusing your life properly. Take this situation responsibly and maturely and you will get through it right.
