t doesn’t matter if it’s a spouse, parent, child, or best friend. When you learn that someone you love has been arrested, your first thought will be that you need to do whatever it takes to get them out of jail. While they are locked up, your loved one has very little control over their life but if you bail them out, they can work, spend time with you, and easily meet with their lawyer so they can start preparing their defense.
The problem many people face is that they don’t know how to go about bailing a loved one out of jail. The good news is that we can help.
The Cost of Bailing a Loved One Out of Jail
Finding out a loved one has been arrested is pretty shocking. Learning how much it will cost to bail that person out is often equally shocking. Factors that impact the amount of bail needed include:
- What charges have been filed against your loved one
- They’re criminal history
- If they have a history of failing to appear in court
Your loved one will only be released after the full bail amount has been paid.
Don’t assume that just because you don’t have enough cash readily available to bail your loved one out of jail that there’s nothing you can do to help them. There is. Instead of taking on the responsibility of posting the bail yourself, you can seek a bail bond.
