Do I Need to Post Bail for a Warrant?

Do I Need to Post Bail for a Warrant?

Every circumstance is different for individuals who have arrest warrants out against them. If you or a loved one believe there is an arrest warrant out in your or their name, it is best to deal with the situation right away rather than ignore it.

What is an Arrest Warrant?

There are several types of warrants, but the one that results in a person being detained or arrested is called an arrest warrant. It is usually issued by a judge or magistrate on behalf of the state and then fulfilled by a law enforcement officer. After an individual is detained by a law enforcement officer, that individual will be taken into custody.

Can Bail be Posted Before Being Taken Into Custody?

While it is usually not possible to post bail before being taken into custody, the time you or a loved one are in custody can be much quicker if you already know the bail amount and have the money ready. Once a person is in custody, they will need to be processed. By having the bail money already in their possession, they are able to present that to the appropriate authorities and may be able to skip time behind bars altogether.

What is the Bail Amount?

There are several ways to find out how much the bail is even before you or a loved one is taken into custody. Those methods include:

  • Attend the bail hearing (which is usually no more than 48 hours after a person’s arrest)

  • Call the courthouse as they will have that information after the bail hearing has been completed

  • Call your local bail bondsman, Andy Callif.
