Once you have located your loved one, your next step should be to hire an attorney.
Why hire an attorney before you pay a bond?
First and foremost, you will have no idea if the bond that was set on your loved one’s case is reasonable or not. An attorney will be able to determine whether the bond is within the range customary to your location. While the bond schedule is listed below, it is not a reflection of how judges typically address aggravating and mitigating factors unique to an individual. If the bond is excessive, the attorney can ask for the bond to be reduced. This could save you hundreds to thousands of dollars. Second, there may be ways to secure a person’s release without a bond, including personal recognizance bonds, and release for mental health supervision.
