Expediting the Bail Process

Expediting the Bail Process

As soon as you enter police custody after an arrest, one of the first steps you must take is to post bail and get released before you must show up to trial. However, you must first appear in front of a judge, who will set your bail amount based on the details of your arrest, the severity of the charges against you, and your criminal history.

Once your bail amount is set, the following are several steps to take to get out of jail faster:

  • Call a bail bondsman – A bail bondsman can help you get started with the process and determine the steps you must take to successfully post bail.
  • Collect relevant information – You must have all the information about your charges in hand to ensure you are released as quickly as possible. You need to understand your charges in detail, your inmate number, and other important facts to help the bail bondsman begin the process of bailing you out.
  • Learn the bail schedule – Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense, the type of charge you’re facing is typically associated with a set bail amount.
  • Invoke your rights – You have the right to remain silent and only speak to law enforcement and court officials while a lawyer is present. If you cannot afford a lawyer, the court must appoint one for you.
