The Difference between Bail and Bail Bonds

You’ve probably never dealt with getting someone released from jail and have no idea where to begin. That is why you are looking for answers online and luckily for you, Bulldog Bail Bonds in Fresno is here to help.

When looking to get someone released from jail, you are going to need to post their bail. This is to say, you are going to have to pay a certain amount of money to the court or jail in order for your loved one to be released. How much you need to pay is dependent on why your loved one was arrested and their criminal record. However, it is safe to say that the bail will cost several thousand dollars, at least.

This is where most people turn to bail bonds...

Why Does a Person’s Bail Sometimes Change?

Most people don’t deal with bail on a daily basis so it is often a foreign experience for them. Trying to rescue a loved one from jail can be intimidating and frustrating. What can make the whole thing more frustrating is when the price of a loved one’s bail suddenly changes. You were expecting to pay one price, and then suddenly the bail gets raised.

While this doesn’t happen all of the time, it can happen. Sometimes the bail amount goes down, though it can also go up. If the price goes down, you can breathe a sigh of relief. If it does increase, it can be very frustrating indeed.

Bail amounts can change after a person has gone to their first court hearing...

Halloween Safety Tips

October is here, and all anyone can think about is the holiday of Halloween at the end of the month. Kids love getting dressed in fun costumes and trick-or-treating for bags full of candy.

California’s Real ID’s

California’s Real ID’s

I

f you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you’ve probably seen a story or two talking about Real ID’s. There has been quite a commotion as Californians all begin prepping for the switch from their old California ID’s to these new ones, but why? What is so special and important about these new ID cards?

 What Are Real ID’s?

The need for Real ID’s arose from the Real ID Act passed by Congress in 2005, which was recommended by the 9/11 Commission. The idea was to set a federally accepted standard for how identification cards were issued by state governments. Under this act, certain requirements have to be met while applying for an ID card. If these requirements aren’t met with that ID, then it will not be given the same access as a Real ID.

Could a Scammer Really Steal Your Home?

Could a Scammer Really Steal Your Home?

There are a lot of things in life that don’t come easy. This includes things like money, a home, and happiness. Often times, these things are usually pretty worth the effort they take to earn. Unfortunately, since they do require so much effort to get, there are many people out there that would much rather take a shortcut to get these things.

These people are often called scammers. Instead of working to get something for themselves, scammers attempt to take things from others by manipulating their intended victims. Yet another scam going around involves scammers stealing the rights to a home out from underneath the homeowner.

 They Target Lightly Used Property

Owning a home is a big accomplishment, and the building itself is very important to the people living within it...

Yet Another Scam Sweeping Across the Nation

Scams are never fun to deal with. No one ever wants to lose some of their hard earned money just because someone tricked them. Sadly, falling for scams is easier than people are aware. Scammers have dozens of different plays that they can use to trick unsuspecting targets. If the trick works, the target becomes a victim.

Once a person becomes a victim, they usually become aware of the fact that they have been scammed. Unfortunately, after this point, it is often too late to get the lost money back. This is often due to the fact that scammers often ask for the money in a way that is impossible to trace. It is a whole lot easier to prevent a scam than it is to fix things after a scam. This makes it all the more important for a person to be aware of scams and how they work.

Can You Believe Teachers Have to Do This?

Teachers arguably have one of the most important jobs out there. Without teachers, knowledge wouldn’t be shared and kids would likely become adults without having enough knowledge to get very far. Unfortunately, despite their importance, teachers are often notoriously under paid. They are often so underpaid, that most TV shows will make a joke about it at some point.

Given that so many jokes are made about how much teachers are paid, no one is ever really surprised to hear the exact number. Everyone just expects it to be low. However, recently a California state law regarding teacher pay came into the spotlight. So few people know about this law that they might assume it’s new, but it has actually been around for quite some time...
