Do I REALLY Want To Co-Sign This Bail Bond?

Orange County Bail Bond Store

If you get a call from someone in jail, it probably means he or she is seeking your help to bail him or her out. They are desperate and remorseful for their actions, ready to face consequences, and will be so grateful for you to support them, even if you are angry and disappointed.

The judge will determine the price of bail based on the arrested person’s criminal history and the crime. Because bail can be so high, many arrested people cannot afford to pay the entire amount in one instant payment in cash. So, they call someone they can rely on, they can call Orange County Bail Bond Store.

What we do is work with you and the arrested person together. We agree on a personalized payment plan so that you, the person co-signing the bail bond, can pay us 10% of the bail amount over a course of so many weeks, months, etc. Once we complete paperwork (no more than 30 minutes), we will send it off to the jail where your person is being held. The jail will process the paperwork and your loved one is free to return home.

Now, as the co-signer of the bail bond, you are responsible for getting the arrested person back to court when they are ordered. That is, if you wish to not pay the consequential full bail amount and get all your collateral back. Think very hard about co-signing a bail bond – the arrested person may be your best friend but do you trust him or her enough to go to court when asked, so that you do not have to pay for the dire consequences?

Don’t worry – you do have rights and we do take precautions to protect our co-signers as well. You can request to have the arrested person take a drug test or see a therapist so you can better determine if you want to co-sign.

If you have additional questions about the bail bond process or what it takes to be a bail bond co-signer, do not hesitate to contact Orange County Bail Bond Store at 714-648-0586 – even if you only want to ask questions. When you’re ready to start paperwork, we will be ready too.

Is Bail Tax Deductible?


One thing you probably want to know about paying bail is if it is tax deductible. The answer to that is no. Even though you are paying bail money to the government, you need to remember that it is a payment to secure the release of a newly arrested person. Bail is not a tax.

If you choose to pay cash bail to either get yourself out of jail or a loved one, you will get your money back at the close of the trial as long as the arrested person (be it you or the other person) goes to trial when the judge orders. Also, any additional court-ordered obligations must be fulfilled without error.

If you choose to pay bail using a bail bond, you will be paying 10% of your bail amount to the bail agent. The other 90% you do not need to worry about. Again, all court-ordered obligations must be met and you must go to trial when you are expected. The main thing you will want to remember is that the 10% you paid is not refunded to you.

Bail bonds are generally more affordable, which is why so many people – including celebrities! – choose to hire a professional bail agent. Bail agents know the business and know exactly how to help you, just ask Orange County Bail Bond Store. This 27-year-old company has seen everything there is to see, has help everyone there is to help.

Thankful For Payment Plans, Including Bail Bond Payment Plans!


Aren’t you so grateful for payment plans? For Coachella, Disneyland passes, mortgage, even bail bond payments! Yep, even the things we don’t want to be paying for because it’s not for personal pleasure offer payment plans. The purpose of bail bond payments is to ensure the release of a loved one from jail as he or she awaits their trial.

Bail bond payment plans like those offered from Orange County Bail Bond Store Service in California allow customers to meet multiple regular deadlines of a low amount due rather than one immediate deadline of a large amount due.

One plus at Orange County Bail Bond Store Service is that the company offers personalized bail bond payment plans to fit any of their clients’ needs. Rather than making clients find a fit based on our company’s guidelines, Orange County Bail Bond Store Service agents will work with clients to come up with a unique bail bond payment plan. Clients can breathe a little easier knowing how much their Orange County Bail Bond Store Service agent truly cares and wants to help.

5 Mistakes To Avoid When Posting Bail


When you’re getting out of jail on a bail bond, you want to make sure everything goes smoothly. You’ve hit enough bumps in your road to get where you are. Avoid these 5 mistakes and your bail bond will post immediately with no trouble:

  1. Neglecting consequences of skipping bail. You’re warned that if you don’t show in court, your bail is forfeited, you would be arrested again without the option of bail, and you may face additional consequences. Plus, the cosigner of your bail bond, someone who really loves and cares about you, faces the risk of losing their collateral and paying the full bail amount. The court, police, and bail agency do not kid around on these consequences.
  2. Lying to the court and bail agency. This is verbal lying and lying on paperwork, like writing down a fake address of where you will be living after posting bail. Again, there will be consequences, which the court, police, and bail agency will warn you about.
  3. Thinking you have more time than you actually do to pay off your bail. Don’t put it off. It doesn’t look good on you. There could be consequences if you don’t meet deadlines.
  4. Hiring just any bail agent without doing research. Some bail agencies and agents are just after your money and will not be as helpful, compassionate, respectful, and professional as others. Look at old testimonials, know exactly what services they offer, etc.
  5. Getting arrested again. No further explanation necessary.
