How to Expedite the Bail Process, Rocky Fork, Missouri

Posting bail allows you to be released from custody before your court date so that you don't have to sit around and wait in a cell. If you or a loved one has never been arrested before, you're likely to be overwhelmed by the bail process. Fortunately, you can expedite the task by acting quickly and efficiently. 

Gather Personal Information

Bail can't be posted until your bondsman has all of the necessary information, so the sooner you gather it, the quicker the process can begin. You will need the defendant's name, date of birth, inmate number, and official charges. If you're posting bail for a loved one, you can contact the jail directly to request this information.

Find Out the Bail Schedule

bailYou also need to find out the bail schedule, which refers to the fixed amount of bail money associated with a specific charge. Every jurisdiction sets and regulates these amounts based on the style and dangers of a particular offense. Before you purchase a bail bond, you need to know the corresponding amount of the charges.

Contact the Bail Bondsman

As soon as you have all of the necessary information, your bondsman can begin the process. They'll also be able to walk you through the next steps and explain the post-bail procedure. You can contact a local bonding company by phone or in person, depending on their operating hours and your preferences.
