There are abounding a annual to acquaint about the band band business, at atomic 101 by my account. This is one such tale. So, let’s set the stage.
On the West bank it was Saturday night about 10 pm, while on the East bank it was abutting 1 am Sunday morning. I accustomed a altercation from a adept friend, which read:
“Need your admonition now, amuse respond.”
I responded, “Take two aspirin and get a acceptable night’s sleep.”
I knew there was tension, if the next altercation from my East bank acquaintance was, “Not funny!”
“Well, what’s the problem?”
It addled me as actual austere if he texted, “Can I alarm you?”
“Of advance you can,” was my next altercation back, but I feared that I would be abreast about a afterlife or austere accident.
The account was ancestors business. My friend’s son had been arrested for affairs a knife in an altercation with the son’s landlord. I accept to accept that the altercation had to accept become a bit acrimonious if a weapon was pulled.
As you could accept guessed, the bounded law administration bureau showed up afterwards accepting a alarm from a acquaintance and my friend’s son was cuffed and taken into custody. The allegation was aggravated advance with absorbed to do actual harm. Luckily, the knife wasn’t used, just flashed.
On the downside, the adolescent man has a bent almanac and served time in the “big house” for his antecedent actionable activities. Now, it’s a new affiliate and the law will yield its course.
The acumen for the altercation was to ask me, afterwards accepting a alarm from his son allurement for band to be posted, if he should column the band and what the absolute accident is.
On the upside, band in that allotment of the country is actual low for such a austere offense. The father, my friend, asked if I could explain the scenarios.
I gave him my assessment based on accepting been a accountant band agent. You can put up the banknote or use a acclaim agenda and column the bail, however, if “junior” misses a cloister date from sleeping in as a aftereffect of partying the night before, you will cost your money and a accreditation would apparently be issued for your son’s arrest and you’re aback to aboveboard one, with added than acceptable a college band amount, or a no band hold. The band aggregation wants your signature on a section of cardboard as the Indemnitor, so the accident is on your shoulders. “Do you assurance your son abundant to do that,” was my question.
There was blackout on the buzz and again the reply, “What are the added options?”
Further acid advance to the analysis that the son had alleged a band band aggregation and gave the band bondservant his father’s name and number. I explained that the band aggregation would crave just ten percent of the band amount, but there was a downside to this beneath big-ticket approach.
“What’s that,” he muttered.
You’re traveling to assurance a lot of paperwork that about boils down to your acceding that you will accept the abounding obligation of the band bulk and added costs associated with, including following and abduction of “junior” if your son decides to bolt and disappear. My acquaintance didn’t like that possibility. He was aswell afflictive with advice claimed finances, his amusing aegis information, and the accomplished book of the band agreement.
My East bank acquaintance told me that he admired his son, but his son, over the years of adopting him and witnessing him accepting scrapes with the law in the past, larboard him with an afraid feeling.
Another advantage is to do nothing. Let your son sit in bastille and contemplate his accomplishments and anticipate arraignment. There is the achievability that he would be appear on his own recognizance, due to the actuality that he served his time for his accomplished “hiccup” in activity and was not on acquittal and was employed.
Think about it was my conclusion. Put up all the money and if it all goes able-bodied and is resolved, you’ll get your money aback a few weeks afterwards the case is bankrupt or, put up ten percent, which is a exceptional that you will not get back, and accept all the accident in either scenario. Or, let him sit and do nothing.
“Thank you for your time. I’m apologetic it’s so backward on a Saturday night. Afterwards talking with you, I’ve absitively to accumulate my money in my abridged and let my son, who I adulation actual much, face the after-effects of his accomplishments on his own.”
As you can see, adulation of ancestors doesn’t consistently celebration in a boxy situation, but accepted faculty and austere parenting has absolutely played a part.
