What to Do if Your Loved One is Arrested During the Holidays

The holiday season is usually a time for joy and celebrations with family and friends. However, if you receive a call that a loved one was arrested during the holidays, instead of holiday cheer, you now have a heavy worry on your hands. While you may be feeling stressed, you no doubt want to help your loved one. Here are some tips on how to handle the situation with the help of a bail bondsman.

What Information Will You Need?

In order for a bail bondsman to assist you with getting your loved one out of jail, you should have the following information readily available for them:

  • The name and address of the jail in which the person is being held.
  • The full legal name of the person in custody.
  • The booking number.
  • The amount of bail needed for release.

The quicker you can supply this information the faster your loved one can be released on bail.

Who Should You Contact?

While your first instinct is to contact friends and relatives who may be concerned or affected by your loved one’s arrest, it’s best to contact a bail bondsman before making any other calls. Making phone calls can take up a lot of time and can delay getting the bail process started. Once you’ve given the bail bondsman all the information needed to move forward, then you can notify other concerned parties about your loved one's arrest. Your other friends and family members will probably be less worried knowing the situation is under control.

Arrest warrants can also be a setback during the holidays. It’s crucial not to ignore an arrest warrant and have the matter resolved as soon as possible. If you are unsure if you have a warrant out for your arrest, Andy Callif can assist you with a warrant check.

Reasons Not to Leave Your Loved One In Jail

If your loved one has a job, school to attend, or a family to care for, you want to act as quickly as possible. The holiday season is notorious for delays as the judicial system may not have accommodating hours and be closed on holidays and weekends. To speed up the process and get your loved one out of jail faster, contact a bail bondsman as soon as possible.
