How to Bail a Friend or Family Member Out of Jail

 Posted on May 07, 2021 in Bail Bonds

Richardson bail bond servicesIf you receive a call letting you know that someone you know has been arrested, you may be looking to see how you can help them get out of jail. In many cases, they will be required to post bail before they can be released, and you may want to determine how you can help them do so. However, the process of posting bail can be complex, and you will want to understand the steps you will need to take and the requirements that you must meet once the person is released. 

Gathering the Proper Information

If your loved one is being held at a local jail or police department, you will need to make sure you have all the necessary information to post bail on their behalf. You will need to determine the facility where they are being held, the offense they have been charged with, and the amount of bail that has been set by a judge. You may also need to provide identifying information, such as the person’s birth date. If you do not know where a person is being held, Doc’s Bail Bonds provides inmate location services, and we can help you obtain any other required information.

Obtaining a Bail Bond

While you may pay the full amount of bail set by the judge, it is often a better idea to work with a bail bondsman. When doing so, you will only be required to pay 10% of the full amount of bail in most cases. At Doc’s Bail Bonds, we will take care of the process of posting bail and making sure your loved one can be released. You will not need to be physically present to obtain a bail bond, and we can assist you no matter where you are located, ensuring that you can bail your loved one out of jail even if you are in another city, county, or state. We also provide affordable payment options, including accepting collateral in place of cash or setting up a flexible payment plan with no credit checks.

Understanding Your Responsibilities

By posting bail on someone else’s behalf, you are taking responsibility for them, and this means you will need to make sure they attend all scheduled court dates during their case. If they fail to appear in court or violate any restrictions set by a judge, they may be arrested, and you could be charged an additional amount. When you work with us, Doc’s Bail Bonds will make sure you fully understand your requirements, and we will advise you of what you will need to do throughout your loved one’s case.
