You’ve been arrested. The bail has been set. You’ve decided to call SmartBail Bail Bonds for bail help. Now you want to get out of jail right away.
We totally understand. What we want you to understand is that while the bail bond process is usually quite quick, but some factors are out of our hands.
The first thing that determines how long it takes to complete the bail bonds process is you. We require some documentation, including identification, proof of your address, and proof of employment/proof of assets. The longer it takes you to get this stuff together, the longer you’re going to be in jail.
The second thing we have to wait on is the 10% fee we charge for bailing you out of jail. If you don’t have the full 10%, that’s okay. We can usually work with our clients to create a payment plan and zero-interest bail payments, but organizing it all takes time.
Once we have everything we need from you, including a signed bail bonds agreement, we start working with the jail to get you released. As a rule of thumb, this part of the process generally takes 2-12 hours, but some factors can create a delay. The time of day you’re arrested, how many people are working at the jail, and how experienced the workers are with the bail process all impact how quickly we can complete the process.
You will be pleased to know that there are some things you can do that will help shorten the amount of time you have to spend in jail. The first is contacting us, SmartBail Bail Bonds, as soon as you know how much bail is needed. The sooner you touch base with us, the sooner we can get the ball rolling.
The second thing that speeds up the process is putting us in touch with a trusted friend or family member who can supply any of the documentation we require that you can’t easily access while you’re in jail.
