What to Know About Co-signing a Bail Bond

orange county bail bonds

Co-signing a bail bond is a huge responsibility. Co-signers essentially pledge to be responsible for a defendant’s whereabouts when they are out on bail. One of the terms of bail is for the defendant to show up for court. If he or she fails to do so, the co-signer can be held financially responsible. The co-signer must make sure their loved one shows up for court.

Basically, the co-signer is taking on a risk. People may think if things start to take a wrong turn, there is nothing they can do about it before it’s too late?

The answer is no, the co-signer can ask to have his or her name withdrawn as the co-signer at any time. This will happen without penalty to the signer. The defendant, on the other hand, will then be taken back into custody until they can find another co-signer. The former co-signer will no longer be financially responsible for the defendant.

To learn more about co-signing for a bail bond, please talk to a representative from Fullerton Bail Bond Store online, or call 714-648-0586.

What Kind Of Collateral Can I Pledge?

fullerton bail bonds

Getting a bail bond requires a few items:

  • Premium – 10% of the bail amount
  • A co-signer
  • Collateral
  • The defendant’s loyalty to show up for court
  • Perhaps the one we get the most questions for, would be collateral. What can be used as collateral? Collateral will fall into one of the four following categories:

    Real Estate
    Property can be pledged as collateral as long as you still do not have to make payments on it.

    Likewise with real estate, any vehicles for which you are still paying off will not be accepted as collateral. You must own it completely.

    Big screen televisions, camera equipment, video game systems, and DJ-ing equipment are just a few electronics that can be worth a lot of money.

    Jewelry, expensive art, coin collections, and firearms are often used as collateral.

    Whatever collateral is pledged will have to equate to a certain cost, which the bail bondsmam will help determine. It is 100% acceptable if there is more than one item up for collateral.

    For any additional questions you may have regarding collateral and bail bonds, do not hesitate to ask an Fullerton Bail Bond Store representative online or on the phone at 714-648-0586. We can help you determine how much collateral will be needed, if any, in order to get the bail bond for your loved one. Get in touch today.

    Skate Away from the Freeway Challenge

    fullerton bail bonds

    Have you heard of the freeway challenge in California? This new challenge that is happening in Los Angeles has skateboarders riding their boards on freeways! Insane to you and us, but apparently less so for these skateboarders.

    Usually when the traffic is slow, a skateboarder will get out on the freeway to skate and do some tricks. A friend will be taking a video and then it will be uploaded onto social media with the hashtag, #freewaychallenge. Clearly, this is dangerous for everyone on the road and the CHP is looking to use social media to track down some of these violators, subjecting them to hefty fines. A stunt like this can easily go terribly wrong with people getting injured and arrested.

    The two key takeaways from this:

    Do not get involved with this challenge. You can face some unfavorable consequences.

    Watch what you post on social media. You could incriminate yourself.

    In any instance where you, or someone you love, needs to get a bail bond, please contact Fullerton Bail Bond Store. This bail bond team serves all of California and is ready to help get you or your loved one out of jail ASAP.

    You Are Selfish for Getting Arrested

    fullerton 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. Fullerton Bail Bond Store will help you with bail bonds.

    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.

    Millennials, Social Media, and Jail

    fullerton bail bonds

    Hey all you social media-loving millennials with quick-texting fingers! How thoughtful are you when it comes to posting content on your personal social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat? Are you as careful about posting content as you are about publishing private information like personal address and phone number online? Did you know that the police and the government are now taking to social media more than ever before in order to catch people doing wrong?

    The police have special units frequently scanning social media for threats, incriminating photos, and status updates like “drank, smoked, and popped pills last night – what a tripppp! Almost got pulled over too!” For example. They can use this against you and it could be why you get arrested in the near future.

    You think you are quick on social media, but the government is right behind you. We are not saying that they are watching you every time you open your app, but they can access your content if ever necessary. They can see things even if your profile is private and if you have deleted the specific content piece.

    If you end up arrested, call Fullerton Bail Bond Store to help bail you out of jail. We offer the most affordable and customizable payment plans in order to avoid hurting anyone’s finances.

    Jail Is One of the Places You’ll Go, Says Dr. Seuss

    fullerton bail bonds

    We know how much you love to read books, which is a great thing! For one couple, it got them into some trouble.

    A Michigan couple had some long overdue library books, including a Dr. Seuss book. The library eventually contacted the couple requesting that they return the books and pay the late fees. If they did not, the library would contact the police and they would be charged with a misdemeanor crime, punishable by almost 100 days in jail and a $500 fine. The couple did not pay the full fee and now await the longer-term decision of the judge. Currently, the couple is out on their $100 bail.

    Getting arrested for not returning a library book on time is definitely not something anyone thinks happens, but it does. As the lead prosecutor in the case argues, “it is not about a library book. It is a program to recover taxpayer money.” Libraries lose thousands of dollars each year due to unreturned books. For this particular library, that amount is $10,000.

    It is not really hard to return a library book on time, so just do it. Then check it out again if you want to keep reading it. If you do not, you may have to pay a couple hundred bucks and even stay in jail.

    For anyone in the future who may need a bail bond for their arrest, or if you need one now for someone you know in jail, please contact Fullerton Bail Bond Store. We will get you or your loved one out of jail quickly, and at a more affordable cost. Learn how, by talking to one of our representatives online or calling 714-648-0586.
