Tips For Successfully Bailing Your Adult Child Out Of Jail

Concord Bail Bonds

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.

Give Yourself Some Time To Think

Don’t automatically tell your adult child that you’re going to handle their bail. Give yourself some time to think about the situation and decide what is best for both you and them. Issues to consider when you have an adult child who wants to be bailed out of jail include:

  • If they’re likely to stick to their bail arrangements.
  • They’re criminal history.
  • If they have their own family to support.
  • How big a financial burden the cost of bail will put on you.
  • If you’re confident that they’ll make all of their court dates.

If, after carefully considering all the pros and cons of bailing your adult child out of jail, it’s time to figure out the best way to go about doing so.

Can Your Finances Handle The Strain Of Bail?

Deciding to bail your adult child out of jail is just the first step. The second is figuring out how to cover the cost of bail. It can add up to a lot of money. The good news is that as long as your child makes all of their court dates, you’ll eventually get your money back from the court. The bad news is that the process usually takes several months.

Can You Afford To Be Without That Money For That Long?

If the answer is no, you’ll want to contact Bail Bonds in San Ramon.

How Long Does It Take To Bail A Loved One Out Of Jail?

How Long Does It Take To Bail A Loved One Out Of Jail?

We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve been asked how long it will take to bail a loved one out of jail. The best answer we can provide is that we work as quickly as possible. Several factors alter the amount of time it takes to bail someone out.

The first issue that impacts how quickly we can bail your loved one out of jail is how fast you can act. The sooner you’re able to send proof of your identity, a signed bail bond contract and payment, the sooner we can act. You’ll be pleased to know that as soon as we get the things we need from you, we leap into action. We rush the paperwork and the money to the jail and start the second process of the bail bond.

Once we get the court involved with the bail process, the timing is once again out of our hands. While the process usually goes quite quickly, if the person handling the task doesn’t have a great deal of experience processing bail or things are really busy or there simply isn’t a clerk available, the process will be delayed.

The good news is that as soon as the clerk completes the paperwork, your loved one is usually free to go. Once they’ve been released, they must attend every single court appearance or risk forfeiting their bail. They also have to adhere to any additional restrictions the court has imposed on their bail which can include not leaving a specified geographical region, associating with certain people or committing any crimes while out on bail.

Explaining Bail And Your Arrest To Your Boss

Explaining Bail And Your Arrest To Your Boss

The first thing people usually worry about after they’ve been arrested is how they’re going to explain the situation to their family. The second is how they’re going to explain it to their boss. You already have enough on your plate, getting fired is the last thing you need.

First Comes Bail

Dealing With Your Boss

Most people try to hide their recent arrest from their boss. This is usually a mistake. Sooner or later your boss will find out about the situation. When all is said and done it’s best that the news comes from you.

Pick a time that’s not busy to meet with your boss and explain the situation. You don’t have to give them the nitty-gritty details of our arrest, but you should at least let them know that there is a court case against you, that you’re out on bail, and that there will be times when you have to take a little time off in order to make your court appearances.

The most important thing to tell your boss is if there are restrictions connected to your bail that will make it difficult to do your work. Two such restrictions would be not being able to leave town/county and having to be home by a certain time.

Telling your boss that you’ve been arrested and are currently out on bail is never fun, but most bosses understand that things happen and will be willing to work with you on the situation. The most important thing is to be transparent about the situation and to talk to them as soon as possible.

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 conditions.

Typical bail conditions include:

  • Not breaking any laws while you’re out on bail.
  • Not leaving a specific area.
  • Agreeing not to associate with certain people.
  • Not engaging in certain activities.

In some situations, the bail bond company you use to help you cover the cost of your bail will also require that you routinely check in with them.

Unusual Bail Conditions

Some judges like to get creative with their bail conditions. These judges will add interesting bail conditions that can include:

  • Sticking to a curfew.
  • Not drinking alcohol.
  • Getting counseling (anger, drug, abuse, etc.)
  • Seeking out gainful employment.

What About When The Bail Conditions Are Considered Unreasonable?

Every once in a while, someone thinks that the conditions the judge attached to their bail are unreasonable. For the most part, the court’s attitude is that if you don’t like the bail conditions, you can stay in jail. In other cases, you can talk to your lawyer and explore the possibility of protesting the bail conditions. Before taking an unreasonable bail conditions case to court, you and your lawyer will have to gather proof that the conditions are unreasonable, biased or unfair.

Contact Us For Bail Help You Can Trust

Once you decide that you can live with the bail conditions the judge has handed down, your next course of action is contacting Bail Bonds in San Ramon.

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.

When Working With A Bail Bond Company

If you fail to appear in court, we aren’t just out the 10% of the bail you paid us, but we’re out the entire amount. The only way we can get our money back is by making sure you make it back to court. It’s in our best interest to make this happen as quickly as possible. We do this by sending a respected bail bond agent to find you and transport you to jail.

Failing to appear in court is often hardest on the people who believed in you so much that they co-signed for your bail or even offered up some of their assets as collateral. You owe it to them to make all of your court appearances and not doing anything to jeopardize the terms of your release.

How To Get A Loved One Released From Jail

How To Get A Loved One Released From Jail

Getting the call that someone you love has been arrested is a heart-wrenching experience. You immediately start to worry about their current situation and what the future holds from them. The last thing anyone wants is for them to have to spend the months it takes for the case to go to trial sitting in a jail cell. Everyone wants to do whatever it takes to get their loved ones out of jail and back home. Thanks to the bail bond program, it’s possible to do just that!

It’s no secret that court systems throughout the United States move slowly. The good news is that the amount of time that typically passes between the initial arrest and bail hearing is usually quite short. It doesn’t take long to hear how much it will cost to bail your loved one out of jail. The other bit of good news is that you don’t need to have the money on hand right after the judge decrees how much bail is. It’s okay if it takes you a few days to figure out how you’re going to handle paying the bail.

The first thing you should know is that paying bail doesn’t mean you’re saying good-bye to that money forever. If your loved one makes all their court appearances, you’ll get the money back. The bad news is that it could be a long time before the court returns the money. Before they sign it over to you, your loved one has to make every single one of their court appearances, including the sentencing if they’re found guilty of the charges. Given how many months will pass before the case reaches its conclusion, you don’t want to use your grocery or rent money to bail your loved one out of jail.

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.


The factors that the judge will look at when determining bail amounts are:

  • THE CRIME IN QUESTION
    Different crimes get different bail amounts, with the worse crimes getting higher amounts. The worst crimes out there, such as rape and murder, are often denied bail.
  • THE PERSON’S CRIMINAL RECORD
    People who have committed more crimes in the past are more likely to commit more crimes in the future. Letting them out would put public safety at risk so they are often denied bail.

  • THE CHANCES OF THE PERSON RUNNING AWAY
    Some people don’t like to face the consequences of their actions and would rather run away. People are less likely to run if they have reasons to stick around, such as family, a home or a job. If a person doesn’t have those in the area, then the judge may deny bail.

A judge looks at all of these factors while determining a person’s bail amount. This is why two people can be arrested for the same crime but end up with different bail amounts.

If you know someone who was arrested and wasn’t denied bail, contact Bail Bonds in San Ramon to get your loved one out of jail. Our bail agents are available 24/7 to provide their professional assistance whenever you might need it.
