Getting the call that a friend, family member, or loved one has been arrested can be a big shock. Even if you had an idea that he or she might be getting into trouble, it’s still an unpleasant experience to get that phone call. Perhaps you’re just settling in for the evening and you’ve made some dinner and gotten comfortable on the couch. That’s when the call comes.
Once again, even if you had an inkling that you might receive this type of call at some point or another, it can leave you with that unpleasant hollow feeling in the pit of your stomach. Whether you knew this was coming or not, knowing exactly what to do next can sometimes seem impossible. Fortunately for you, the team at Wanna Get Out Bail Bonds is here to help!
What to Do After a Loved One Is Arrested
Step One: Get As Much Information As Possible
When that initial phone call comes through, make it a point to get as much information as you can. Find out where your loved one will be held and if you can, get the booking number as well. Inform the person who has called you that you intend to bail your loved one out and ask if there is any other pertinent information that you might need to have. Lastly, be sure that you know the amount that will be needed to post bail.
That leads us of course to…
Step Two: Call a Bail Bondsman
We know that many of the people who will call us for the first time won’t have much of an idea of what to expect. Although you may be nervous, you can rely on the team at Wanna Get Out Bail Bonds to take great care of you every step of the way. The information you got from step one will come in handy here.
Generally speaking, we can look the person who was arrested up by their first and last name, but it’s an easier process for everyone involved if we have as much information as possible. It allows us to speed up the process and get your loved one out of jail as quickly quickly.
One quick note we feel compelled to mention is that enlisting the help of a bail bond company can be intimidating. For whatever reason, people often associate our line of work with gruff employees who can’t be bothered to explain anything you don’t understand. At Wanna Get Out Bail Bonds, that’s not how we do things. We take pride in treating our customers well. We know exactly what you’re going through and we’ve been in the business long enough to see how stress can affect people. That’s why we want you to know that you can feel free to ask any and all questions you have and know that you’ll get a straight, honest, and candid answer from anyone on our team. It’s as simple as that.
