Getting a phone call to say someone has been arrested, is usually one of the worst phone calls a person or family can receive. Those people who have never had to deal with a situation like this before, will naturally not be absolutely sure of what to do. If the bail has been set at an amount that is unaffordable, most people will try to get assistance from a bail bonds company such as ours.
The first thing to do when receiving a phone call from a loved one in custody, is to remain calm. You need to gather some vital information from them, that can be passed on to Lakewood Bail Bonds in order for them to be able to assist you in the quickest time possible. Time is always of the essence and the more vital information you can provide, the faster we can start the release process.
Information To Obtain:
The full legal name of the arrested person. This includes middle name/s.
Where the arrested person is being held
What they were charged with
Where they were arrested
Once Lakewood Bail Bonds has this information, we will require some paperwork to be filled out, and the fee to be paid. The fee will be 10% of the total amount of bail however, our firm will work in with qualifying clients and their individual financial situation. Once the paperwork is completed and the non refundable fee sorted out, our firm can post the bail for the defendant and have them released.
What is very important to also remember at this time, is that whoever is signing the agreement, also becomes responsible for the defendant. The defendant has to appear at any and all scheduled court dates, otherwise their bail can be revoked. This also leaves the co-signer in a position of being financially responsible for the bail. Lakewood Bail Bonds will however, explain all this in detail before you sign any papers.
Our professional staff will explain the entire bail bond process and you will not have to go through it alone. Our professional and experienced bail bond agents will guide you through the entire process, explaining everything in detail to ensure you completely understand it.
