3 Questions to Ask Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles

The sheer amount of stress you’re dealing with combined with the underlying sense of urgency you feel can result in some costly mistakes. More than one person has inadvertently found themselves dealing with a bail bonds business that was more interested in running a scam than actually bailing anyone out of jail. That’s why we urge every single person who contacts us to take a few minutes to ask some questions about the legitimacy of our business.

There are a few questions we wish every single person who contacted us for free bail bonds advice would ask.

Is Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles Properly Licensed?

One of the first things you should ask any California bail bonds business is if they are properly licensed to offer bail bonds in the state.

How Much will the Bail Cost?

By the time you contact us, you should already know how much money is required to bail yourself or a loved one out of jail. The good news is that if you decide to use Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles you don’t have to come up with the entire amount.

How Long Will it Take for Us to Get you Out of Jail?

You should ask us how long it will take for us to complete the paperwork and get you or your loved one out of jail. While we would love to give you an exact time, we’re really not able to. 

We can tell you that we work quickly. We offer both phone and online bail bonds approvals which helps speed up the process. During the 30 years we’ve been posting bail in California, we’ve managed to streamline the process so that we’re ready to post the bail shortly after you’ve signed a bail bonds contract.

Resisting Arrest and Paying Bail

Resisting Arrest and Paying Bail

Anyone who has ever watched a police procedural show knows that television cops automatically assume that if someone resists arrest it means that they are guilty. More often than not, it seems like the suspect’s decision to resist arrest is what it takes to get the television cop to really investigate the suspect.

Reality is a little different. In the real world, resisting arrest is a natural instinct, none of us want to go to jail. It doesn’t matter what the cops are saying, we automatically assume that if they’re taking us to jail, we’re going to be there for a really long time and we will be found guilty of some crime that we might not have done.

As natural as resisting arrest feels, it’s in your best interest to quell the urge. More often than not, resisting arrest simply leads to even more legal problems. It’s always best to go quietly and submissively with the police.

What Is Resisting Arrest

Digging in your heels and balking when the cops attempt to load you into the back of the police car isn’t considered resisting arrest. Running and trying to hide is. If you try to do either of those things, the police will file resisting arrest charges against you. If all you did was run or try to hide, you’ll only be charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest. If you respond with either verbal or physical violence, you’ll be charged with a felony count of resisting arrest.

Stay Calm During Your Arrest

From the moment the police knock on your door until the moment you’re released on bail, it’s in your best interest to stay calm, cool, and collected. Contact your lawyer so they can start to untangle the mess. As they work to sort out your legal issues, including the resisting arrest charges, you need to focus your attention on getting yourself bailed out of jail. It shouldn’t take long before you learn how much bail you owe. If you don’t know anyone who can cover the amount, your best course of action is contacting Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles.

Using Collateral to Help Secure Bail

Using Collateral to Help Secure Bail

Bail is a funny thing. In some situations, bail is nothing more than a signature on a piece of paper. In other cases, a judge sets a bail that is six figures, way more than you can ever hope to pay.

Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles is a local bail bonds business that has the resources needed to cover your bail when you simply can’t afford to. All we ask is that you pay us 10%, which we keep. Once you’ve come up with 10% of the bail, we pay the additional 90% and you’re released from jail. When your case reaches its conclusion, we get to keep the 10% you paid.

Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles is a family-owned bail bonds company. We’ve worked hard to hone a reputation for providing discrete and fair services for each of our clients. We understand that a one size fits all approach to bail doesn’t work. You are a unique person with unique needs. Our desire to help as many people as possible cover their bail prompted us to create flexible bail bonds plans. Our program includes:

• Flexible payment plans
• No hidden fees
0% Interest payment plans
• No collateral with a working signer

 
The problem some people run into when they’re trying to cover bail is that they lack the credit history of financial means to meet our needs. That doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. It just means we have to work even harder to come up with a plan that works for both you and us. In many cases, that means you providing some sort of collateral.

The point of collateral is that it provides us with a little security. If you default on your bail bonds payments or if you fail to appear in court and forfeit your bail, we get to keep whatever you signed over as collateral.
Items people use as collateral when they sign a bail contract includes:

• Real estate
• Vehicles
• Electronic equipment
• Guns
• Jewelry

 
To use something as collateral, you have to prove both its value and that you own the item. We can’t accept anything that you’re still paying for, such as a mortgaged house. Once the case has made it through the court system and the court returns our money, we return the item to you.

Bail Denied! Can You Reapply

Bail Denied! Can You Reapply

The last thing you want is for a judge to tell you that they’re denying bail. Getting denied to pay bail means you’ll have to sit in a jail cell until your court case reaches its conclusion, which in some situations can take more than a year. During that time you won’t be able to work, provide for your family, care for pets, or meet with your lawyer outside of the jail.

Common Reasons Bail is Denied

The good news is that a judge can’t deny you bail because they happen to be having a bad day. They must have a good reason for doing so. Common reasons bail is denied include:

• You’re not a U.S. resident
• You have a history of drug or alcohol abuse
• You previously jumped bail
• Your actions indicate that you could be a danger to the general public
• The judge is worried you’ll do something illegal if you’re released from jail
• You’re being charged with a repeat offense

 
There are some crimes that prompt judges to automatically deny bail. It’s not unusual for judges to deny bail in murder cases or in when the charge involves an act of terrorism.

There have been cases when it wasn’t the judge, but rather the police who told a person that bail was denied. This often happens if the charges involve crimes that don’t have a predetermined bail attached to them. The police can’t set bail, so they have to keep you in jail until a time is selected for your bail hearing.

Is Reapplying for Bail an Option After it Has Been Denied

If you’re told your bail has been denied and you haven’t had a formal bail hearing, set up a meeting with your lawyer to discuss the situation. The lawyer will take the steps needed to make sure that you are ready for a bail hearing. They will also make sure this hearing takes place as quickly as possible. In this type of situation, it is likely that after hearing your case, the judge will set bail for your release.

If you were denied bail at a formal bail hearing, you don’t have many options left.

The first thing you can try is reapplying to appear before the local magistrate again in a fresh bail hearing. The only way this particular hearing will happen is if something has changed that could alter the judge’s mind. The “fresh circumstances” needed to apply for a second bail hearing don’t happen very often.

Your second choice is to take your case to the California Supreme Court. This takes time, usually more than a month since the court has a massive backlog of cases they have to get through before they can deal with yours.

Contact Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles

Once you’ve been granted bail, it’s time to figure out how you’re going to cover the expense. Your best bet for zero down bail bonds is a family-owned bail bond company that really cares about your future.

Communicating with your Bail Bonds Man

Communicating with your Bail Bonds Man

It is no secret that communication is the secret to success. It is also a key component to successfully cultivating a harmonious relationship between yourself and your bail bondsman. Early in your relationship, there are a few key things you need to discuss with the representative who is helping secure your release from jail.

How Much with the Bond Ultimately Cost

The court determines how much bail you’ll have to pay before you can walk out of jail. If you bail yourself out, you pay the entire amount which the court returns to you once you’re case has made it through the entire legal process. 

If you require a bail bonding agency such as Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles, you pay us 10% of the total amount. We kick in 90%. Once the case is concluded, we get 100% of the money back.  

This is the standard process. Each bail bonds business has its unique twist which is why you must discuss exactly how much money you must provide and how much the bail bonds agency supplies. Make sure both amounts are clearly stated in your contact.

In addition to finding out how much bail is going to cost you, take time to learn if you need to have a co-signer if you have to sign over any assets and if you need to provide the bail bonds business with information about your employer.

How Long will it be Before You’re Allowed to Walk out of Jail

Some people assume that as soon as they contact a bail bondsman, they’ll get out of jail. That’s not usually the case. Several factors influence how much time it will take for the bail bondsman to procure your release. 
Influencing factors include:

• How long it takes you to come up with your share of the bail
• The bail bondsman’s current availability and schedule
• How long it takes the bail bondsman to fill out the required paperwork

 
Knowing how long it will likely take the bail bondsman allows you to arrange for things like transportation to your home, care for your kids, and when you can return to your job.

How Long Has the Bail Bondsman Been Active in the Area

It is in your best interest to get a little information about the bail bondsman you’re working with. There are many stories about people who thought they were getting bailed out of jail only to learn that the person they were dealing with wasn’t a bail bondsman but actually a con artist. Knowing how long they’ve been working in the area goes a long way towards confirming that you’re working with a legitimate business that can get you out of jail.

Knowing what questions you should ask your bail bondsman helps clear up a lot of communication problems and helps you to keep the relationship pleasant and business-like rather than stressful.

Is the Bail Bonds Process Changing

Is the Bail Bonds Process Changing

The bail bonds program is interesting. It was created for the purpose of allowing individuals who have been charged with a crime to carry on with their lives while they wait for their case to make its way through the legal system. The idea of the bail bonds program is that it creates a financial incentive for you to make all your mandatory court appearances. If you appear before a judge, you get the bail back. If you fail to appear, the court keeps the money.

It’s an eloquent system. The process enables you to work, to care for your family, and to easily mount a defense. It also saves the taxpayers a substantial amount of money since they aren’t responsible for keeping you fed, healthy, and housed while you wait for your day in court. If you’re unable to cover the cost of your bail, Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles is ready and willing to help out.

The benefits of working with Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles include:

• 24/7 Bail bond service
• A lack of hidden fees
• 20% Discount
• Over the Phone approvals
• 0% Interest payment plans
• No collateral with a working signer
• Se Habla Español

 
The bail bond process has been in place for a long time and has always worked well but it could change.

California voters have the option of changing how the state’s cash bail system functions. In 2018, Governor Jerry Brown passed a bill, Senate Bill 10, that did away with the current cash bail program and replacing with a risk assessment program that would be used to determine if an individual should be released from jail prior to their trial. The idea was that the changes made it easier for low-income prisoners who lacked the funds and connections needed to bail themselves out to be released.

If California residents pass Senate Bill 10 during the November 2020 election, it would do away with the current trend of judges simply looking at the charges filed against a person when setting a bail amount. Instead, the type of charges, the individual’s ties to the community, and their background would also be taken into consideration during the bail hearing.

If voters pass Senate Bill 10, it will be interesting to see if other states explore the possibility of passing similar legislation.

If you or someone you love has been charged with a crime and you lack the means needed to cover the bail yourself, your best course of action is contacting Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles. We’re ready and willing to help you out.

When you contact us, you’ll work with an experienced bail bond agent who will explore the conditions of your bail and discuss a plan to get you released from jail. The initial consultation is free and completely free of any obligation.

Do You Require Bail Bond?

Do You Require Bail Bond?

Getting arrested for any reason is a life-altering event. Not only do you face public ridicule, but you also must figure out how you’re going to launch your defense, how you’re going to provide for your family, and how to deal with the aftermath of the arrest. The entire situation is stressful, time consuming, and costly.

First Things First

One of your first priorities is getting yourself released from jail. Despite how things are portrayed on television, the legal process moves at an incredibly slow rate. If your case goes to trial, it could take as long as a year before the matter is resolved. You do not want to spend that time sitting in a jail cell. Getting released allows you to continue working, to easily meet with lawyers, and lets you maintain control of your life until the legal matter is resolved.

Getting out of Jail-Understanding Bail Bond

The court system uses bail as a means of encouraging individuals who have been charged with a crime to stay involved in the court process and make all their court appearances. If you do as your supposed to and appear before a judge at the appointed times, the court system returns the bail. If you do not, the court keeps it. When determining how much your bail will be, the judge considers the charges filed against you, your community ties, and your criminal history.

In most cases, the judge determines the amount of your bail, but some crimes have a predetermined bail schedule. In Los Angeles, anyone charged with sexual assault receives a minimum of $25,000 bail. Manslaughter cases involve a $1,000,000 bail.

The Role of a Bail Bonds Company

Once a judge has determined how much bail is required for you to leave jail and resume your life, it’s up to you to figure out how to fund your freedom. In cases where the bail is low, you may have enough money in the bank to cover the cost. Or you may have a family member who is willing to loan you the money. If you cannot come up with the funds yourself, you contact Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles and we’ll help you out.

When you contact us about putting up your bail, we run a risk assessment on you and determine if our underwriters will allow us to cover your bail. Factors we consider include:

• Your professional and personal connection to the community
• Your financial situation
• The charges filed against you
• The amount required

 
If we believe you’re not a flight risk and that you’ll appear for all of the court dates we work with the court to get you released from your jail cell and back with your family.

In many cases, we do require that you find someone who is willing to co-sign for your bail bond. The reason for this is to lower our risk. 

Once you’re freed from jail, it’s important that you are diligent about making every single official court appearance, that you stay in communication with both us and the court, and that you don’t do anything else that attracts negative attention from the police.

The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can help you return to your regular life.
