What Is My Monthly Payment?

Once people figure out what the initial cost of their loved one’s bail bond will be, they want to know how much the monthly payments will cost. Unfortunately, much like figuring out the initial cost of the bail bond, figuring out monthly payments requires a lot of information. This makes it hard to give people a real answer without having any case information.

There are different factors that play into the size of the monthly payments.

Size of the bail bond
Size of the initial payment
Length of the payment plan

These variables all factor into determining how much the monthly payments for the bail bond will be. If more money is paid up front, the monthly payments will be less, and vice versa. Larger bail bonds tend to have bigger monthly payments since more money needs to be paid...

Falsely Reporting a Crime

Just like it is a crime to falsely dial 9-1-1, it is also a crime to falsely report a crime in California. It is one thing to be innocently mistaken that a crime is taking, has taken, or is about to take place. In this case, the person reporting the false crime may not be charged because they were misled. However, it is another thing to purposely report a crime that you know for a fact never happened.

There are many reasons a person would want to falsely report a crime, including getting revenge on someone they are mad at, to scare someone or make them feel threatened, to do a prank, or trying to make a profit from another individual because of a fake kidnapping, for instance.

Anyone who falsely reports a crime to the police, the grand jury, a prosecutor, and 9-1-1 operators can be char...

Summer is the perfect time to take a road trip with friends. It is vacation season and the weather is perfect for you to drive your convertible with the wind blowing in your hair.

Make sure your horn is working, and loud for others to hear.

Unpaid Traffic Fines Dont Mean Suspended Driver’s License

san marcos bail bonds

san marcos bail bonds

Starting next month, Californians who do not pay their traffic fines have one less thing to worry about: risk losing their license. There is a kind of catch 22 here because, on one hand, it means Californians who do not pay their traffic fines can keep their license and continue to drive. On the other hand, these individuals may feel less inclined to have to pay their traffic fines.

One reason for this change is that suspending licenses has not been helping the state collect money for the unpaid fines. Additionally, lower income individuals who lose their license simply because of unpaid traffic fines risk falling deeper into debt. By losing a license, a person can no longer drive. Think about how that would affect your everyday life, if that was you...


What to do in a Police Chase

Car chases in the movies are exciting and cool, but in real life, getting stuck in the middle of one is dangerous, and nerve wracking. What is the protocol for civilians who are suddenly in the middle of a car chase? This is not something driving school or the DMV teaches people. Do you move to the side of the road because you hear sirens coming your way? Will you have time? Will you have the room to do so?

If a driver has the time and room to move over to the side of the road to let the car chase pass, then they should do so. This does not happen often though, so in all other instances, the driver should continue driving in their lane at the same speed they are going. The police will maneuver around the driver. A driver should never make a lane change if the car chase is too close...


Responsibilities of Being a Parent

Being a parent takes an incredible amount of responsibility, including legal responsibility. Until a child turns 18 and becomes a legal adult, their parents are responsible for them in many ways. This includes needing to pay for consequences should their child get into trouble, cause problems, and/or get arrested. The parents can hold their children accountable at home, but the justice system will hold the parents accountable too.

If a child damages other property, such as graffiti’s a wall, breaks a window, or runs a car into another, the parents will have to cover the financial responsibilities of paying for the damages. The money goes towards the victim or person who owns the damaged property...
