If you or a loved one has been arrested, then you are likely going to want to make the process go as quickly as possible. The first thing to know is that you can’t get out of jail until bail has been set. To do this you will need to appear before the judge. They will look at your background, the details of your arrest, and the crime you have been accused of, and decide the amount that bail will cost. At this point, the bail will need to be paid and the defendant will be released. Assuming that the person returns for all of their required court dates, then there will be no further money required and the bail money will be returned to whoever paid it to the court. If the crime is serious enough then bail can be denied.

There isn’t much you can do to speed up the time that it takes to fill out and process the required paperwork, but there are a few things you can do that will help speed up the bail process. First and most important is that you contact the bail bond company as quickly as possible. This will mean that you won’t have any delay in finding a bail bond company to get involved and help. Second, you should gather all of the information you may need. This will help the bail bond company process it all quicker. For example pay information, inmate number, etc. When you call the bail bond agent ask them what they need and have it ready as quickly as possible.

If it is necessary it might be a good idea to involve a lawyer to ensure you don’t have to pay excessive bail, or if you need any further assistance when it comes to the legal side of the crime. The other reason that using a bail bond agent is a good idea is you won’t have to waste time trying to get the money needed for bail.
