If someone you know is arrested, there are a few things you should know if you are going to be involved in helping bail them out.


  1. First step

As soon as the person you know is arrested, they need to call a person that can help them with bail. The person they contact will then be the one to reach out to the bail bond company to start this process.

  1. Ask questions

Next, you need to start asking questions. For example how much will the bail bond premium be? You will then need to let the person you are bonding know. Ask any other questions you may have as well. For example how long will the bail process take?


  1. Reviews

Before working with a bail bond company, make sure to read and check into reviews. You want to use a company that is going to take care of you and will be honest. Look for a company that has good reviews, and has a good reputation.


  1. Wait

It usually doesn’t take long to get someone bailed out, but depending on when and where someone is arrested will determine how long the entire process may take. You might have to wait a little while.


  1. Understand your responsibility

If you are the person signing for the bail bond, you will have some responsibilities. This is important to understand since if the person you bail out doesn’t return for the required court dates, then you will be held financially responsible for the entire bail amount. Talk to your bail bond agent to make sure you do understand your responsibilities.
