First, understand the process. After an arrest, your loved one will be booked. This sounds harsh, but it’s simply an administrative process and may involve fingerprints, a mug shot, a formal reading of the charges, and so on. It is only after the booking that your loved one will be escorted to a cell, where he or she will await a judge.
Find out the bail amount. When your loved one goes before the judge, a bail amount will be set. (In most cases, anyway; a judge may not set bail if the suspect is deemed a flight risk, or if the charges are extremely serious.) When this bail amount is paid, your loved one can leave jail, so long as he or she returns for the appointed time. You’ll need to find out the bail amount before you can proceed to help your loved one. In particular, you will need to go to the police station to find out the specific charges and bail amount; if you’re unsure about doing this, you can always call the Remedy Bail Bonds team.
Make bail. If you can pay the set bail amount out of your pocket, great! If not, know that there is help available. Remedy Bail Bonds can help you make that payment, and in most cases, we only require 10 percent upfront. Just remember that when your loved one is released on bail he or she must appear on time for their scheduled court appointment. Failure to do so is a major crime, and will only make matters worse!
Don’t panic. Above all else, we’d encourage you to remember that, for as scary as all this can be, there will be an end to it. There is help available. Remedy Bail Bonds is a reputable local company that exists for the sole reason of helping those who have been arrested get back to their families ASAP. We are here to help you during your time of need!
