When facing charges after an arrest, the last place you want to be is in jail. There are so many things to worry about and being home is invaluable. The arrest itself is hard enough to face but being away from home can create even more issues. Riverside Bail Bonds understands you need to be home not only with your family, but also available to continue working. These things are essential to have the finances and mental well-being to face your charges. We know getting arrested is overwhelming. We have enough experience in posting bonds to know how daunting and confusing the entire process can be. Unfortunately, getting arrested is more common than most of us realize. It does not discriminate. If you find yourself in a situation beyond your control, even the most respectable citizens may fall victim. And, although getting arrested is difficult, it is even more of a burden for your loved ones. They are faced with the task of not only finding a way to bail you out of jail, but also deal with the worry and stress involved when someone you love is in jail. The next steps after an arrest are crucial. Riverside Bail Bonds understands this can be a confusing and daunting task.

If taken to the local jail in Hemet, you can post bail 24 hours per day, 7 days a week by either cash, cashier's check, or bail bond. Most people cannot afford cash/cashier's check because these methods of posting bail require the full bail amount to be paid upfront. Cashier's checks must be issued by a California-based bank, include the inmate's booking number, and be made out to the local jail. Cashier's Checks can cause a delay in getting released because the funds must first be verified.

Why Use A Bail Bond?

If you opt to take out a bail bond, state law requires you pay a 10% non-refundable premium on the bail amount, neither more nor less. In some rare instances, a reduction to 8% may be possible, but anything less than this is illegal and could lead to your bond being later declared invalid. The co-signer of the bond will be held liable for the full bail amount should the bond be forfeited after the defendant fails to appear in court, and it is fully at the judge's discretion whether to reinstate a forfeited bond after the defendant finally does appear. Those skipping bail are also subject to re-arrest, often by a bounty hunter hired by the bail bondsman.

If the defendant dutifully appears for his/her court dates and does not violate other terms of bail, such as not leaving the county and notifying your bail bondsman of changes to address/contact information, a bail bond will be a great help. It will allow the arrested individual the chance to get out of jail, hire a good defense attorney, and prepare a solid defense.

Two other ways to get out of jail are on a property bail bond or on O.R. ("own recognizance"). In Upland, a property bond, which is posting bail with the deed to a piece of real estate, normally requires a property value at least twice that of a cash bond. This is based on the equity rather than on the market price. Because the process of posting a property bond is slow and tedious, it can leave you waiting in jail for days or even weeks, but it can also save you money so long as the bond is not forfeited. If it is forfeited, you risk the permanent loss of your property. Release on own recognizance occurs when the court finds you to be an "upstanding citizen" who can be trusted to be released without posting any bail at all. This is rare, but if you have no criminal record, long-time residence and employment in the community, and good character witnesses, it might be possible.

The process of obtaining a bond is foreign to most Americans. Riverside Bail Bonds understands this and strives to make the experience as seamless as possible. We understand the laws and guidelines for posting a bond in Upland, CA and can make your experience a little less stressful. When using a bond, you are only required to pay a percentage of the entire bail amount as a one-time fee to your bondsman. California law dictates this amount is 10 percent of the total bail amount except in special circumstances when only 8 percent is required. This 10 percent fee is non-refundable. Once you pay the fee, Riverside Bail Bonds will put up the remaining amount of bail to the court. This allows the bondsman to make a small profit and not have the added stress of coming up with a large amount of money for bail on such short notice. And, it makes it easier to focus your attention on your case and court dates without worrying about bail. Also, if the 10 percent will create a financial hardship, we do have in house financing that will be approved on a case by case basis. Please keep in mind that if the defendant fails to appear at any court dates the judge will issue an arrest warrant and you must return to jail within the designated amount of time. If this happens, your bond will be immediately forfeited, and you will be responsible for the full amount of the bond.

Riverside Bail Bonds does allow cosigners, and we take great care in explaining your responsibilities at the time of obtaining a bond. It is important to remember that you are accepting full responsibility for the full amount of the bond if it is forfeited by a judge. In our experience, we find it is best if you do cosign to ensure you are in contact with the defendant as well as the bondsman to ensure you are aware of any information regarding the case. It also helps to provide accountability for the defendant with court dates and such. This is suggested so the requirements issued by the courts are fulfilled and the bond will not be forfeited.

What Is A Property Bond?

property bond is basically the same as a surety bond, except that tangible property with substantial value is used for security instead of cash. The same bond process is used and all of the rules and regulations are the same. There are some differences, however, that you must be aware of. Even though the 10% premium is still mandated, the value of the property being used must be at least one and a half times greater than the total cost of the bail being covered. This means that if bail is $100,000, the property must be valued at $150,000.

The reason for the difference is that if the bond would happen to be forfeited, the property will be sold and the proceeds used to pay for the total cost of the bail bond. Any monies left over after the bail bond has been paid off will be returned to the co-signer minus the 10% fee and court costs. If restitution is ordered, those fees will also be taken out. Closing out a property bond takes much longer than if cash was used as security. The processing and sale of a property can take several months' time.

When Are Property Bonds Used?

Property bonds are used when a defendant's bond is exceedingly high. A high bond can be the result of several felony charges, an increased flight risk, or simply lack of funds on behalf of the co-signer. Using property is an easy way to cover a bond as long as you don't need it as part of your financial security. Once it is put in place to secure the bond, it will remain tied up until the end of the court proceedings.

In order for the property to be used, it must be owned free and clear with no liens or judgments against it. The co-signer will turn over the title or deed for the property over to the bail bond agency. The property will be appraised to find its true and real value. If it meets or exceeds the necessary amount needed to cover the total bond, the bail bond application will be approved and the agent will complete the process and retrieve the defendant from jail.

Where Do Upland Residents Appear for Court?

Residents who live in Upland, California, or any of the surrounding communities in San Bernardino County, must appear in court at the courthouse located in the county where the arrest took place. If they were arrested close to home, they would be required to attend court at the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court House located at 8303 Haven Avenue in Rancho Cucamonga. If you have questions about your court date or where you need to go once you arrive at the courthouse, you can call 909-350-9764.

If for any reason you miss your appointed court date, you must immediately call the courthouse and talk to the clerk. Mistakes do happen and if it isn't a regular occurrence, a new court date will be set and your bond will remain intact. If you do not contact the court or your bail bond agent, the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest and your bond will be revoked.
