Three Ways To Post Bail in Pennsylvania

The legal process can be complicated and burdensome. If you or someone you know has been arrested, you may be wondering how to bail someone out of jail philadelphia pa. There are several ways this can be done, to be determined by the judge.

Monetary Release

Bail is set if the defendant poses a supposed risk, like if they have a prior record. If they do not have the funds themselves, friends or loved ones can take up the mantle for them. This is where bail bonds come in. Purchase of a bond guarantees that the full amount of bail will be paid. The price of bail is set by the severity of the crime and several other factors. Sometimes a nominal bail can be set, as low as $1.

Non-Monetary Release

Being released on recognizance, otherwise known as ROR, is the best possible release situation for a defendant. This means that no money is required, only a promise to attend all hearings and trials. This type of release is usually reserved for those with a clean record, if a non-violent crime has been committed. In Pennsylvania, it is a separate crime to miss a trial, so money is not as heavily relied upon as an incentive to attend.

Unsecured Bond Release

Think of this type of release as a threat of a bond. No money is required for the initial release, but the defendant does need to sign a bond agreement. This means that a bond will become active should they miss any hearings or trials. Again, the bail amount is determined by the severity of the crime in the context of the defendant’s criminal history.

It can be a huge relief to be able to await your trial from home, instead of from a jail cell. Step one in your fight for justice will probably be to figure out bail. Once you or your loved one is released, you can start worrying about the next steps.

When You Might Need a Lawyer

You know that you should consult with a lawyer when you’re facing criminal charges. After all, a criminal record could affect your livelihood, finances, and freedom. However, there are many other situations when you may want to consult with attorneys Ashburn VA.

Nonprofit Boards

Nonprofit boards that are tax-exempt must ensure that the organization’s finances and activities are conducted in a manner that will not affect their tax-exempt status. Even a simple space rental to another organization could cause problems. It is wise to regularly check in with an attorney who has experience with nonprofits.

Employment Contracts and Disputes

If you’re an employer, you want to make sure that you do not violate anti-discrimination laws when you hire and fire employees. You also need to worry about accurately classifying employees and independent contractors, and paying appropriate taxes. You may also want advice on employee handbooks and non-complete clauses in contracts. For these reasons, any employer should have an attorney on retainer.

As an employee, you should consider having a lawyer review any contracts before you sign them. If you are about to be fired, or believe that you are dealing with harassment at work, a lawyer can help you sort out your options.

Homeowner and Condo Associations

Homeowner association boards are largely volunteers who may have little experience with the laws that govern HOAs. These boards must not only keep in mind the local covenants, but also city, state, and federal regulations. Even simple questions may have complex answers. Lawyers that specialize in HOAs can advise you on how to keep records, run meetings, and deal with covenant violations.

Media Law

If you produce or publish any kind of content, you have an interest in protecting your work. If you plan to show media in a public setting, even if it’s showing a movie to a church discussion group, you need to make sure you have the right licenses. Media lawyers assist with understanding copyright law and the process of granting permissions.

Lawyers can help you understand and manage many potential legal pitfalls in situations outside of criminal cases.

3 Ways the Right Attorney Makes a Personal Injury Case Easier To Handle

An accident that leaves you seriously injured and worried about your financial future can make it feel as if the world is ending. However, the right Boston injury lawyer can help you make sense of your situation and get your life back on track sooner rather than later. The following are just a few examples of how.

1. Experience

Managing your personal injury case completely on your own can easily leave you feeling even more overwhelmed than you already do. Plus, it’s hard to be sure you’re really making the right decisions when you’re already under an immense amount of stress. A personal injury attorney has handled many cases exactly like yours over the years and knows exactly how to handle every possible situation without missing a beat.

2. Efficiency

If your injuries are severe enough that they’re impacting your ability to work and live your life, then it’s in your best interests to get your case resolved as quickly as possible. Your attorney will be able to gather the necessary paperwork, communicate with your insurance company, go over any relevant police files, and handle every other task associated with building your case. This means you won’t have to juggle those tasks yourself along with everything else you have on your plate.

3. Peace of Mind

Your personal injury lawyer is as invested as you are in getting your case resolved on a positive note, so you can rest easy in the knowledge that he’s working hard with your best interests in mind. He’s also capable of answering any questions you or your loved ones may have about the entire process. With the right professional assistance on your side, it will be easier to sleep well at night and to stay positive about the eventual outcome of your case. Explore the possibilities today.

How A Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Can Save A Business

Not every business can afford to stay open. Some businesses need more time to see their long-term revenue. Others might have been struggling to pay off their debt. Whatever the reason, if a business needs more time to start making money, filing chapter 11 bankruptcy can literally buy them that time.

What is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a reorganization plan that allows businesses more time to pay off their debt. This chapter is a great option for businesses if they are struggling with debt but want to stay in business to realize their long-term revenue plan. When a company files Chapter 11 bankruptcy, it is generally to buy more time to reorganize their debt.

What Happens in a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?

In a chapter 11 bankruptcy, a business gets to come up with a debt reorganization plan that will show the court how the business will pay off their debt under the plan. The plan must be in the best interest of the creditors, not the business. Remember that the purpose of the chapter 11 is so that the debtor get a chance to pay off their creditors. If the debtor does not propose a reorganization plan, the creditors may come up with one.

Creditors cannot make further attempts to collect debt from a business when a chapter 11 bankruptcy attorney files chapter 11 for the business (with few exceptions). This gives the debtor more freedom to focus on making whatever shift or action necessary to follow the reorganization plan for paying off the creditors.

Probably the main advantage of a chapter 11 is that the debtor can stay and run its business as usual. This helps the business generate revenue while making efforts in paying off the creditors. However, some business operations are not allowed without the court’s approval. Some restrictions include decisions to sell assets or expanding business operations.

Businesses that need more time to get their debt reorganized can file a chapter 11. The debtor will be able to remain operating while making sure that they are fulfilling their obligations to the creditors. Sometimes, a chapter 11 can be a valid approach for businesses if they need more time for their longer-term business plan to come into fruition.

Filing for chapter 11 is one of the more expensive bankruptcies. A business should carefully consider if a chapter 11 is their best option before making the decision to file for one.
