Tips to Know During A Bail Emergencies


3 Things to Know About Bail and Emergencies

As if getting arrested isn’t already bad enough, you learn that there’s an emergency that your loved ones need your help with. But, unfortunately, as long as you’re locked up in jail, you can do little to correct the situation. 

While emergencies can make the entire experience more complicated and stressful, you can contact us and inquire about a bail bond if you’ve been granted bail

Don’t Waste Any Time

In an emergency, contacting us as quickly as possible is in your best interest. Yes, you’ll still have to wait to be arraigned, there’s nothing we can do to speed up the court process, but if you contact us beforehand, we can estimate what your bail will be based on similar cases and start all the paperwork. This way, we can be right there at the end of your arraignment and post the bail bond.

Have all the Necessary Information on the Hand

Whether you’re in jail and contacting us about yourself or calling about a loved one who has been arrested and needs to be released quickly to help deal with an emergency, you should know that we can work faster when we have all the relevant information.

Make sure you can provide us with the following information:

  • The name of the jail they’re being held at
  • Their full, legal name
  • What they’ve been charged with
  • The inmate number
  • Their birthdate

You should also have proof of employment and financial information that we can use to set up a payment plan.

Stay Calm

If there’s one thing we wish for our clients, it is that they learn to be calm. Too often, the person we’re dealing with is seriously stressed out. While we understand that getting arrested and having an emergency is highly agitating, we urge you to take a few breaths and calm yourself. Not only will this help you feel a little better, n it will also shorten the amount of time it takes us to post your bail

The problem with stressed-out clients is that the stress causes them not to hear something we said, misremember a vital piece of information, or simply be unable to grasp something we’re trying to explain. All of these problems drastically slow us down, with the end result being that you spend more time than necessary sitting in a jail cell.
