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 process.
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.
