Tips For Successfully Bailing Your Adult Child Out Of Jail

Tips For Successfully Bailing Your Adult Child Out Of Jail

Our instincts are to do whatever it takes to help out our children. Those instincts don’t go away when they become adults. On the other hand, there is also a time when we want them to fully understand that their actions have consequences and that we can’t do everything for them.

Learning that your adult child has been arrested often pits the two sides of our parental urges against one another.
One of the first things you have to decide after learning your adult child has been arrested is if you’re going to bail them out of jail.

Understanding The Conditions Of Your Bail

Understanding The Conditions Of Your Bail

In many cases, you pay your bail, you get released from jail, you go about your life. The only real conditions placed on you are that you promise to make all of your court appearances.

There are exceptions. Every once in awhile, someone is granted bail but the judge tells them that there are certain rules they have to follow otherwise the bail is revoked.

It’s important that you fully understand every single one of these conditions before you sign a bail bond contract.

The Purpose Of Bail Conditions

Bail conditions are a list of rules you have to follow while the court handles your case. Breaking any one of these rules puts you in violation of your bail. You’ll be arrested and won’t be released a second time. The entire time you’re out on bail, you have to adhere to the bail condi...

What To Do If You Have An Arrest Warrant In California

What To Do If You Have An Arrest Warrant In California

An arrest warrant is a scary piece of documentation. If the police knock on your front door and hold up an arrest warrant, it means that they will be taking you to jail. It is in your best interest to go peacefully with them. The only thing trying to run away or arguing with them does is add to the list of charges the state/county will file against you. It’s best to save your energy and focus on putting together a strong defense.

What If There Are Mistakes On The Arrest Warrant?

Many people assume that if there are mistakes, such as a name being misspelled, on the arrest warrant that the error makes the warrant invalid. That’s not true. The police are still well within their rights to arrest you.

Even if you’re confident that a mistake has been made and somehow the police have mixed y...

Consequences Of Failing To Honor Your Bail Agreement

Consequences Of Failing To Honor Your Bail Agreement

Bail is a monetary agreement you enter into with the court system. You pay bail in exchange for being released from jail. If you make all your court appearances, the court eventually returns the money to you.

When You Cover Your Bail

If you’ve paid the bail yourself and fail to appear in court, you forfeit the money. That doesn’t mean the court forgets about you. They have some options which include:

  • Swearing out an arrest warrant.
  • Sending officers to your home to get you.
  • Suspending your driver’s license.
  • Additional charges could be filed against you.

If you have used a bail bond company, things become complicated.

Why Would Bail Be Denied?

Why Would Bail Be Denied?

Despite what television shows tell people, getting assigned bail after an arrest isn’t always a guarantee. There are plenty of instances where a bail can be denied, meaning that a person is stuck in jail until the end of their trial. This leads people to wonder what can cause a person to be denied bail.

A person can be denied bail for a few different reasons. When a case is brought before a judge, he or she will examine those factors to determine the bail amount. The judge has to decide if allowing the person to get out of jail will be a safe idea for the community. Will the person behave while out on bail or will they cause more trouble? If the judge sees too many red flags, then most likely, the judge will deny bail.
