In this paper we address the Poincare problem, on plane polynomial vector fields, under some conditions on the nature of the singularities of invariant curves. Our main idea consists in transforming a given vector field of degree m into another one of degree at most m+1 having its invariant curves in projective quasi-generic position. This allows us to give bounds on degree for some well known classes of curves such as the nonsingular ones and curves with ordinary nodes. We also give a bound on degree for any invariant curve in terms of the maximum Tjurina number of its singularities and the degree of the vector field.
