A Little Bit About Richmond

 

Richmond is a city in western Contra Costa County, California, United States. The city was incorporated on August 7, 1905. It is located in the East Bay, part of the San Francisco Bay Area. It is the site of heavy industry, which has been undergoing a shift towards a service and commercial economy since the 1970s. Richmond almost completely surrounds the city of San Pablo and the unincorporated areas of North Richmond, El Sobrante and East Richmond Heights. The city has a reputation for being crime-plagued, although this problem is centralized in the urban core, with many parts of Richmond having a low crime rate. The city’s own police department, however, has described the city as having a chronic violent crime problem for “decades.” In 2010, Richmond was ranked the 6th most dangerous city in the United States. The city is headed by mayor Gayle McLaughlin, making Richmond the largest city in the country with a Green Party mayor. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the city’s population is at 103,701. This makes Richmond the 61st largest city in the state. Richmond has been called a company town based on its relationship with Chevron Corporation and has been referred to as “Refinery Town”.

How Bail Bonds Works Richmond Ca

 

Alameda County Bail BondsThe Bail Process is fairly simple. We begin by evaluating the situation. We will find out what charges your loved one has pending against them and what their bail amount is. If they have no bail we will find out why and if and when they will have bail. If we can do anything to help secure bail for them we will.Once we know the basics of the situation at Luna Bail Bonds Oakland, we will proceed with the bail process. In most situations, to bail someone out, you will pay 10 percent of their total bail amount. For example, if your husband was arrested for assault and his bail was set at 50,000 dollars, the total amount you would pay to bail him out would be 5,000 dollars. Assuming he went to all of his court dates and complied with all requirements of the courts, you would never pay a penny more. In certain situations we will do bail bonds for less than 10 percent of the total bail amount. For example, if you retain a private attorney, we then can do your bail bond at a discounted rate. Depending on the situation, you can pay as little as 8 percent, so that 50,000 dollar bonds’ fee goes from 5,000 dollars down to 4,000 dollars, saving you 20 percent or 1,000 dollars. Not bad right?

 

There are various situations in which we can discount the amount you pay to bail someone out. Since the bail process is a time sensitive matter, call us immediately so we can discuss your options at (510) 255-2555. Sometimes when someone has a high bail amount, generally 100,000 or greater but occasionally less, we require collateral to bail your loved one out of jail in Santa Rita, Contra Costa County or any other part of California. This means that we will put either put a lean on a property or vehicle until the bond is exonerated. This means that until the person that has been bailed out of jail has completed all of their court dates and possible sentence if found guilty, the lean will remain in place. Once the courts requirements have been satisfied, yours and our responsibility for the bail bond is relieved and then afterwards the lean on any property or possession will be removed.
