We’ve spoken before about the bail bond process. Although the process is pretty cut and dry, it can still take some time. There’s a lot of paperwork involved, not to mention the court process. So is there a way that the process can speed up?
Unfortunately, you need to wait until your bail is sent before you can get out of jail. That means your loved one needs to appear before the judge, hear the charges against him/her, and have the judge determine what is a fair amount for bail. Only then can bail be posted.
But there are some ways to make the process much quicker. And that means you must be prepared beforehand. Here’s a couple of things you can do to be prepared for the bail hearing:
- The first thing you should do as soon as you learn your loved one has been arrested is contact Andrew Pizzo Bail Bonds. The quicker you contact us, the smoother and more efficient the process will be.
- Make sure you get as much information as possible. This means knowing what the charges are, the inmate number of your loved one, and anything else important that can get your bail bondsman a head start.
- Next, you need to find out the bail schedule. Certain offenses carry one set bail and this will make it not only easier on your bail bondsman, but will give you an idea of how much the bond will be.
- And most important, know your rights. If you feel your loved one’s bail is too high or is being treated unjustly, it’s important to know what your next moves are. It may be best to hire an attorney at this time to help with bail.
