When you have been arrested, the first thing you are probably thinking about is when can I get out! You probably don’t even make it to the jail before you decide who you are going to call and ask to help bail you out. The process is the same no matter what you do to get arrested. The process can be different as an experience for each person but no matter the crime you have to go through the same process that everyone else does. The problem is that most inmates are anxious to get out and it can be hard to understand what it is you are even waiting for.
 

Ajua Bail Bonds has a list of what has to happen before you can get bailed out of jail.

The Bail Bond Process Takes Time!

The first thing that most people want to know is how long this will take. The problem is that there is no way to tell since the amount of people that are being processed fluctuates all day and night. If the night is slow, your process will be able to go much quicker. If it is a busy night it may take more time. The staff at the jail wants to process everyone and get them moved to where they are going as quickly as possible so remain calm and just wait your turn. Bad behavior in jail can lead to you receiving more charges and will hold up your processing; in turn taking longer.
 

When Can a Bondsman Post Bail

The next step is when a bondsman can post bail for you. First things first. You will be responsible for contacting a loved one or relative that is willing to meet with the bondsman and sign documents agreeing to be responsible for the bail on your behalf. That person can call the bondsman they choose and work with them to get the information needed to post the bail and get you out of jail as soon as possible. The bondsman cannot do their part of the bail until the person in jail has been processed and many times seen a judge to determine the amount that will be required to post the bail. Once the bail amount determination has been set, the bondsman can make the arrangement with the jail to pay the fee that is required. This is when you will be able to get your belongings and get out on your own.

This does NOT mean that you are done in any way with the charges that you have been issued and charged with. If you have to bail out of jail it means that a court date for a later time has been set and you do NOT want to miss it. If you do the bondsman can revoke the bail and have you back behind bars in no time at all. Be sure to follow up with your bondsman and keep a calendar of any check-in dates or court dates that you are required to attend.
