Everybody loves to receive a phone call from a loved one. But, no one expects that call to be coming from the local jail. It’s a nightmare most of us wouldn’t expect, but when an emergency like this occurs, they need your help and time is precious.
You need to know the right things to do in order to get them out of jail as quickly as possible. It’s easy to panic and get worried. That’s why you need an experienced Bail Bonds DIRECT Agent to walk you through the process. We handle this every day, and we know how to help you remain focused on the solutions.
If you have to bail a loved one out of jail, follow the steps below:
1. Give Us A Call.
Do not delay. Before you do anything else, give us a call so we can contact the jail to let them know we’ll be handling your loved one’s bond. This saves valuable time and prevents the possibility of your loved one spending any additional time in the system than what is necessary.
2. Choose a co-signer.
We’ll need for you to choose someone who will guarantee your loved one will be present at any court appearances required of them. This is required by the court and is necessary for their release.
3. Sign all paperwork.
All paperwork has to be completed before your loved one can be released. Once the bail bond is accepted, the defendant is usually released within a few hours at the most.
4. Make a payment.
We accept cash, check or charge to make the payment process as easy as it can be.
We hope that your loved ones are never arrested. But, if something does happen and you need immediate help, contact us right away at 562-453-4200.
