Most of us by now, have had our tax return directly deposited in the bank. Sweet! “Free” money! Have you thought about what you are going to do with the money? Will you save it? Will you spend it? Will you divvy it up for various needs and wants? What about making the bail bond payment that you have scheduled?

Tax return money is acceptable money for bail bond payments. As soon as the transaction has cleared and the money is deposited into your account, then it is 100% your money to use as you like. Just like you have been paying your previous bail bond payments with your cash, check, or credit or debit card, you can use your tax return money in this way as well.

Even if you are up-to-date on bail bond payments, it never hurts to get ahead or budget ahead. This will be beneficial to you because it is one stressful thing that you can put behind you, sooner, so you can then turn your attention toward other needs.

One of the best things about using a bail bond to get your loved one out of jail is that Chowchilla Bail Bond Store will set you up with a custom payment plan. Mark your calendar for when payments are due to avoid falling behind because the consequences are not too friendly.

What You Need to do to Prepare Yourself for Court

For the most part, your lawyer will take care of the majority of court preparation over the days and weeks leading up to your court date. However, on the actual day itself, you will need to do a few extra things to prepare and present yourself properly.

Your lawyer will also give you some tips of what to do and what not to do for your court appearance:

  • Dress as if you are going to a business meeting or interview and do not overdo the accessories.
  • Remove sunglasses and hats in court.
  • Do not chew gum.
  • Arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled court time and try and leave young children at home.
  • Use the restroom before going into the courtroom, and turn off your cell phone.
  • Sit and stand straight.
  • Speak clearly and loud enough for the room to hear and only when you are spoken to, and only what you are asked of.
  • Do not grow angry and argumentative.
  • Refer to the judge as Your Honor.

How you present and conduct yourself in court will speak to the judge and the jury in addition to the case, facts, and evidence itself. For example, if you get angry, verbal, and disruptive in court, the judge may pause the trial for the day and when you come back, they will be stricter with you. In essence, they are watching you for your behavior.

Listen to and trust your lawyer. If you are out on bail, do not forget to stay on track with bail bond payments. Chowchilla Bail Bond Store will help make sure of this as well.
