Are You Eligible For Bail?

Are You Eligible For Bail?

Getting arrested is terrifying. It’s supposed to be. The goal is to make the process scary enough that you never want to go through it again.

When most people are arrested, their biggest source of fear is that they simply don’t know what will happen. While they’ve heard of bail on television, they don’t understand how the bail process works or if they’re even eligible for it.

If you’ve been charged with a minor crime, you’ll likely find out whether you’re eligible for bail at the same time you’re booked.

What Happens If You Fail To Appear In Court

What Happens If You Fail To Appear In Court

You’ve been charged with some sort of crime and now you’re out on bail with a court date rapidly approaching. It’s natural to wonder what will happen if you simply don’t show up. The problem with failing to appear in court is that not showing up doesn’t make all of your legal problems go away. The charges won’t be dropped. All you’ve accomplished is delaying the final outcome.

At Ceres Bail Bonds, as a bail bond company with several decades worth of experience, we strongly discourage this action. If too many people fail to appear in court, the bail system as we know it will fall apart. The whole idea of bail is to provide people with an opportunity to work and care for their families while they wait out the legal system.

If you’re out on a bail bond and fail to appear in c...

Should You Get Bailed Out Or Stay In Jail?

Finding yourself on the wrong side of the law and sitting in a cold jail cell is terrifying. Equally terrifying is learning how much bail money you have to come up with before you’re released.

Visiting Someone In Jail

Visiting Someone In Jail

When a person has been arrested and locked away, it can be hard for them to stay in contact with loved ones. Some people may choose to visit their loved one in jail so there interaction doesn’t have to be as distant as a phone call. While this is a viable option, it is important to remember that you cannot just walk into any jail and ask to visit a loved one.
