Finding out an arrest has been made is a daunting experience, but the timeline of steps that should follow an arrest are actually pretty straightforward and we can help you work through it. We’ve come up with five steps in particular to get the accused bailed out of jail, and arrive on the day of the court appointment thoroughly prepared.
- Know All the Information
Before you can get the ball rolling on a bond or anything else, you’ll need to know a fair amount of info regarding the crime and the accused. You’ll need to find out the specific crime they’ve been arrested for, which jail they’ve been taken to, their contact information and their social security number, for example. As you get further along in the process, you’ll likely need to know more,but this should be enough to get you started.
- Find a Bail Bond Company
The sooner you find a bail bond company, the sooner you can get your loved one out of jail. The bail bond agent will probably have an easier time communicating with the jail as well. You should find a bail bond company that has experience with many different cases, particularly the kind of case you’re facing. With over 15 years of experience in the bail bonds business, our bail bondsmen have experience working through a wide range of arrest and bail situations. In addition to our experience and knowledge, we’re known for our excellent, fast service and our positive attitudes. For your convenience, you may think to choose a company that’s located close to the jail in Bulloch County, and we are located right next door. We also have bail bond agents in Jenkins and Candler Counties. We are also able to arrange a bond over the phone and online, in the case that you are not able to come to our office.
- Get a Bail Bond
Once you’ve decided on a bond agency and gathered up most of your information, you should be able to obtain an affordable bond for a fraction of the cost of the bail. This means you’ll need to provide payment information. For your convenience, we offer different payment options for bail bonds including cash and all major credit cards. You can pay for the bail bond online, or in person.
- Find an Attorney
If you’ve finished your bond and the arrested individual has been released, or even before the pre-trial release point, it’s time to find a skilled attorney. The attorney will be a valuable resource for the trial hearing.
- Attend Your Court Date
Perhaps the most important thing to do after a criminal arrest is to show up at your assigned court date. Skipping or forgetting about this appointment will only ever make things worse. Dodging a court date can result in many negative consequences including arrest warrants and license suspension.
