Now a days anyone can get in to trouble and as a result of that they can get arrested. I’m sure it has happened to all of us at some point of time in life. But what if your loved ones get arrested. What to do then? The police will first complete the arresting process by going through the booking procedure and then conducting the standard formalities like fingerprinting, photo shooting etc. After the arrest is complete you can apply for a bail.
But first you should find out why your loved one is behind bars. If it is because of a nominal act of felony like a traffic violation then you should ask the arrestee for a cite release. If a cite release is on the cards then the detainee has to cite to the arrestee for a cite release with the promise that he or she will appear in front of court when the hearing takes place.
If the person is in jail for a crime much severe in nature than a traffic violation then you should apply for a bail. By just paying the bail amount the detainee gets released. But bail amounts can be really steep sometimes. Immediate liquidity might be a problem you can face. In this circumstances always go for a bail bond.
Bail bond is a legal document signed by both the detainee and the bail bondsman providing surety that the guilt will turn up to every court hearing proceedings. It is a legal document with great importance. After the bail bond agent has located the prison where your relative is, go with him and try to get started with the bail bond process.
The agent will go to the jail and post bail. Upon posting which the detainee can get an early release. Cost of the bail bond is 10% of the bail amount. This rate is fixed by the State Department of Insurance which is why it can’t be negotiated. Make sure all the applications have been filled in properly and go through all the details of the agreement before the detainee signs on it. After the paperwork is done your loved ones will be released in a couple of hours.
