Getting arrested is the last thing that anyone wants to see happen to a loved one. It can be scary, embarrassing, and can also be a major disruption to one’s life. We often imagine some things only happen to other people. That’s the unpredictable nature of an emergency situation. We don’t always know how to best prepare for the unexpected.
Take a few words of advice from our Bail Bonds DIRECT experts at Van Nuys. Make sure you have a plan for what you’re going to do if your loved one calls, asking you to help post their bail. The first thing you need to do is call a professional right away. There’s a limited window of time where you can greatly improve the chances for your loved one to be released quickly. That’s the first of many reasons why your first call should be to us.
When a person is arrested, they are taken to the county jail for booking. They will take their picture, take their fingerprints, and hold them until they are potentially transferred to a permanent facility depending on the charges brought against them.
Our goal is to call the jail immediately, to let them know we’re working with you, and that you’ll be posting bail. This ends the concern of your loved one’s transfer to another facility, which can greatly prolong their time in jail.
Next, we’ll help you in filling out paperwork, assigning a co-signer, and collecting your payment. We accept cash, check, or any major credit card. In a short time, your loved one should be free, ready to return to normal life and heal over the traumatic incident.
A loved one’s arrest can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be devastating. Contact us and we’ll walk you through the rest.
