Controversy Over Randy Quaid Bond Money

Posted on November 10th, 2011 by Tonya Page

The Santa Barbara bail bonds company that posted the bond for Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, is facing the loss of that $1 million. Within a few days, if the couple does not appear for court, the money may be forfeited.

The company was originally supposed to have the couple back in court by November 10 or face the loss of the money. On Monday, the company filed a motion to get that money back. The hearing is scheduled for November 21.

Randy and Evi Quaid have been living in Canada, and if they do not return, Santa Barbara Bail Bonds could suffer a huge financial blow. The upcoming hearing, though, could fall in the company’s favor.

There are very specific procedures that have to be followed before a bond can be forfeited and if these procedures weren’t followed exactly, the bond company may be entitled to the return of their bond,” said Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter.

The couple’s retrieval will be the responsibility of the District Attorney’s office, if the bond company does receive its money back.

If that money is not returned, it will Read more »

You’ve Been Arrested – Now What?

Posted on November 6th, 2011 by Tonya Page

Everyone makes mistakes, and unfortunately, in some instances, those mistakes could result in being arrested.  In others, simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time could get you into trouble – even if you haven’t done anything wrong.

Unfortunately, such a situation could compromise your job, your relationships and life as you’ve known it.  Should you find yourself behind bars, there may be some solace in knowing you’re able to get out with the help of a expert bail bondsman.

In California, bail bond companies require you pay 10 percent of the set amount of bail in order to get you out of jail.  The amount of your bail will be set by the court and will be based on the crime for which you’ve been charged.  Lesser crimes will have lower bail amounts, whereas bail for more serious crimes will set higher.

If your bail is set at $10,000, does that mean you need to pay the full amount to get out of jail?  Not Read more »

Best Bail Bonds Company in California

Posted on October 29th, 2011 by Tonya Page

Another question from Yahoo! Answers where we often answer bail related questions.  This one was chosen as Best Answer by voters.

Question:   What is the best bail bonds company in California?  I am having some issues with my cousin, does anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:  The best bail bonds company would be dependent upon finding one that best suits your needs.  For instance, how much is the bail amount? If it’s under $10,000, many companies won’t do it. If it is a very high amount ($200,000- $1 Million), some bondsmen don’t have that capacity.

Additionally, how are you planning to pay? You may need a company who accepts bail payment by credit cards and/or offer you a payment plan.  Do you have collateral?  Will you be looking for a company that will write a bail bond with no collateral?

In short,you will want to find a bondsman who will answer all of your questions and explain your options. Feel free to call us: 877-861-3761.
