Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to agree to be in court on your court date, and until that date you are not allowed to leave the area.

Typically, prisoners will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will be required to go back to jail at the end of the day after work, or you may be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set is dictated by the seriousness of your charges. Someone you know will need to post 10 percent of the total amount that was set so you can get out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, the person that bailed you out of jail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it’s easy. First, find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you will not be able to use a Bail Bondsman.

If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman.

If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman might use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.
