How To Get Your Loved One Out Of Jail


When the phone rings in the middle of the night, it's almost never with good news. Once you find out that a loved one is in jail, your first and only thought is probably how to get them released. For some guidance on how to go about that task, read below.

Don't Wait Too Long

Depending on where your loved one is being kept and how you feel about their arrest, you could be tempted to take your time getting them out of jail. However, jail has become an extremely dangerous place to be for any length of time. Jails are often crowded with dangerous criminals being kept in the same location as those accused of misdemeanors.

In addition, jails are dirty and unhealthy places for your loved one. Serious medical conditions can be passed down in a jail environment. Finally, your loved one is probably in danger from fellow inmates. Fights can start and innocent inmates can be hurt even when they did nothing to provoke it.

Don't Pay the Full Bail Cost

Unless you know better, you could end up paying far too much to get your loved one out of jail. You can pay the jail the full cost of the bail and your loved one will be released. You can also pay a bail bonding agent a lost less money and your friend can be released from jail. It just makes sense to use a bail bonding agent rather than paying the full cost of the bail.

How Bail Bonds Work

It's easy to arrange for bail using a bail bond. First, call the jail and find out what your loved one is charged with and the cost of the bail. Then, phone a local bail agency. The bail bonding agency should be located near the jail where your loved one is being held. That way, they will understand the procedures for gaining a release and can provide you with expert knowledge of how things are done locally.

You will find that the cost of the bail bond is only a small percentage of the full cost of the bail. Returning to face the judge is the number one most important aspect of bail and bail bonds. The percentage you pay varies by state. Once you fill out the bail bonding paperwork, the agent will get busy arranging for your loved one's release from jail.
