Domestic Violence Charges in Southern California
In Southern California, including Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Diego and Ventura, we are all hyper-aware of Domestic Violence charges due to the Simpson case. One of the consequences of the high-profile case is stricter enforcement and increased arrests on Domestic Violence charges.
Domestic violence cases in Southern California are more aggressively pursued today than ever before. Police departments and officers are there for our protection and they would rather remove someone from a situation than to return later to a devastating scene. Unfortunately for some, this means being arrested and charged with domestic violence. It causes families pain and embarrassment and costs money for bail, potentially for an attorney and possibly for a fine and/or treatment counseling.
There was a time in the past when the police wouldn’t arrest someone during a domestic dispute unless they saw obvious evidence of serious abuse. Now, police are required to arrest an individual during domestic violence call if one or the other has any visible injury. The police will take statements and then decide who the victim is and who the “domestic abuser” is. Sometimes, even though there has been an arrest, formal charges may not be brought. Often, I hear that the “victim” really did not want to have their partner arrested, but that is not a choice in such cases.

Paying for a Bail Bond
Generally, the bail bond fee is paid before the defendant can be bailed out of jail. Most families pay for a bail bond using credit cards such as, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card. I also accept cash.
We understand the cost of the bond is not something for which you have planned. Payment arrangements may be discussed, but you have to qualify. THis is based on various criteria such as your credit, home ownership, and your ability to make payments. Additionally, I prefer to have some of the money in advance.
