Do You Have To Post Bail Right Away In California?


One of the questions many people ask when they contact us about California bail bonds is if they have to post the bail by a certain time. The legal answer is no.

The court doesn’t care if you post bail as soon as you learn how much it is, or if you wait months before posting bail. The only thing they’ll tell you is that until the bail is posted, you’ll have to remain in jail.

Just because there isn’t a legal reason for you to post bail right away, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to get bailed out right away. The longer you’re locked in a jail cell the greater the chances become that:

  • You’ll accidentally say something that will harm your defense.
  • Get into an altercation with another prisoner that could lead to more charges getting filed against you.
  • Have a difficult time meeting with your defense attorney.
  • Lose your job.
  • Have your possessions repossessed because you can’t pay your bills.
