Securing a bail bond can be a difficult and stressful process. At A-EZ Out Bail Bonds, it’s our goal to relieve some of that stress. That’s why today, we’re explaining the entire bail release and bonding process from arrest to post-release. If you still have questions afterward, reach out to one of our expert Dallas bondsmen for answers. Let’s get started, but make sure you read to the end to learn more about our current promotions and coupons!
Wait for the judge to set bail
The first step is an annoying one– patience. We understand that no one wants to sit on their hands while their loved one sits behind bars. But there’s not much you can do for them until the judge sets their bail amount. Fortunately, this is usually done within a couple of hours following an arrest. According to Texas law, bail must be set within 24 hours for a misdemeanor and 48 hours for a felony charge. The only reason the court wouldn’t grant bail to the defendant is if they’re a flight risk or a threat to society.
In the meantime, you should gather all of the information the bondsman at A-EZ Out Bail Bonds in Dallas would need to secure the accused person’s release. You can also use this time to gather funds to pay the 10% fee or collateral so we can post the bond without any hold-ups. Unfortunately, if you’re seeking an immigration bond, you may need to pay a larger initial fee, and we’ll have to work within Texas’ strict guidelines. Please contact one of our immigration bail bondsmen for more information about this unique process.
Know what you’re asking for
Do you need a bail bond, walk-thru bond, immigration bond, or property bond? If you’re not sure, it’s important that you’re honest with us about your loved one’s situation so we can get them squared away ASAP. It’s okay if you need some help though. The bail bondsmen at A-EZ Out can educate you about your options, or you can visit our website to learn all about the different types of bonds we offer.
Paperwork For Bail Release
To post a bond for your loved one, we’ll need to collect some information first. A-EZ Out makes this process as easy as possible, but you should expect to share your contact information, know where the defendant is being held, and provide payment or collateral information.
A-EZ Out posts the bail bond
Once the paperwork is complete, one of our bondsmen will post the bond and secure a bail release. After several years in the bail bond industry, we’ve developed connections at courthouses around the DFW metroplex and we can guarantee one of the fastest bail releases in Dallas county.
Consent to extra conditions
Before you’re released, a judge may require you to abide by certain regulations. Common conditions of release include:
- No consumption of illegal substances
- Reporting regularly to a bail officer
- Staying away from the alleged victim
- Staying within city limits
While these are common conditions of release, you may be assigned more or less depending on the crime you’re accused of. If you violate these release conditions, you will be rearrested. This would mean you’d be responsible for paying the full bail amount and you’d have to post the 10% bond again.
Appear at all of your court dates
One of the quickest ways to land yourself in trouble is missing your court date. If you do, you’ll be charged with failure to appear and will likely be fined and thrown back in jail. The only way to clear your name and avoid losing all of your bail money is to appear at every hearing you’re scheduled to attend.
