Buying a First Home

After 10 years of marriage, I’m still enjoying living in the first home I moved into with my husband. Buying a first home can be one of the most exciting events in a person’s life. Before making this important expenditure, people need to first sit down and determine how they will successfully finance it. After all, a home will likely be the most expensive purchase you make in your life. Talk to a loan officer and determine how much money you can reasonably borrow. Then, decide how much money you want to use as a down payment. You also must decide how many years you will finance your home for. On this blog, you will learn about the process of buying a first home with a loan.

Trying To Avoid Spending The Night In Jail While Arranging Bond? 3 Things To Try

Irma Bates

When an arrest results in the need to post bail, many people find that they are kept in jail overnight or even through the weekend while the necessary arrangements are made. In some cases, however, it may be possible to work within the confines of the legal system to expedite the process and avoid spending unnecessary time in jail. 

If you or someone you love has recently been arrested, the following information may help you speed up the bail bond process. 

Consider a walk-through process

If you are aware of an active warrant for your arrest, you may be able to avoid spending unnecessary time in jail by making arrangements for your bond before meeting with law enforcement officers to surrender to the charges on the warrant. Your bail bond agent and attorney can help you access the information you need and then accompany you to the jail so that you can be booked and immediately post bail and be released. Walk-through bail bond processes may not be available in all areas, so be sure to discuss your situation with a reputable bail bond agent and your attorney to be sure. 

Use a faster payment option

Another issue that can delay the posting of a bail bond is when the person who has been arrested is forced to wait in jail while cash is delivered or personal checks or money orders are verified. Most courts and bail bond agents readily accept both credit and debit cards for the purpose of posting a bail bond.

Since credit and debit card payments take only seconds to clear, there is far less risk of having to spend unnecessary time in jail before being allowed to post a bond. Using a debit or credit card also makes it fast and easy for distant family or friends to post a bail bond, when the defendant is financially unable to do so. 

Choose a responsive bail bond agent 

When avoiding unnecessary jail time is the goal, it is critically important to select the right bail bond agent to help you navigate the process more easily. Seeking out a reputable bail bond agent who responds to calls quickly, day or night, will help to avoid delays that could mean spending several hours or a weekend in jail before being able to complete the bail bond process.
