Arrest & Arraignment
The first part of the bail process is the arrest and arraignment. After a person is detained they will be held until their arraignment. The time leading to the arraignment will vary based on the facility the defendant is in custody at. At the arraignment the person will hear the charges against them and learn their bail amount. At this point they become eligible for bail release.
Reach out to Bliss Bail Bonds
By now you will likely have learned that your loved has been arrested. This means that you need to reach out to our team so that we can file a bail bond with the correct authorities that allows for their release. After your initial consultation with us, in which we locate the defendant, assess the bail amount and develop a payment plan with you, we will file the bond, allowing for the detainee to be released, usually in less than 7 hours, sometimes as quick as 1 hour.
Released Pending Court
After the bond is filed the defendant will be released. It is imperative that this person appears at all of their upcoming court dates if they want the bond to remain in effect. Should they miss court we may enact skip tracing in order to return the defendant to custody to avoid paying the full bail amount.
As the co-signer of the bond your main responsibility in regards to finances is paying for the initial fee for the bail bond filing. Should the defendant skip court you may become responsible for paying any fees associated with locating them.
