Steps to Take When You’ve Been Bailed Out of Jail
If you’re managed to bail yourself out of jail, fantastic. You’re free to do whatever you want to do. However, if you turned to San Jose Bail Bonds for assistance, there are a few steps you should take before resuming your normal life.
Steps To Take Once Released
Check-In With Your Agent
Within 24 hours of your release, it’s a good idea to touch base with San Jose Bail Bonds. This gives us a chance to confirm things like your contact information and employment history. It’s extremely important that we have accurate contact information so that we can immediately notify you of a change in the court’s schedule.
Review Your Bail Agreement
Review all the conditions of your bail. The odds are good that the court attached several conditions to your bail agreement. It’s important that you read through them and know them by heart. Violating a single condition, even accidentally, will result in your bail getting revoked and you getting tossed back into a jail cell.
Contact Your Employer
Contacting your employer is another high priority when you’ve been released on bail. It’s usually in your best interest to let them know about your arrest (they’ll find out about it eventually and they’ll take the news better when it comes directly from you.) If you already know some of your court dates, you’ll want to let your employer know so they can clear the schedule.
Plan Your Defense
Meeting with your lawyer so they can start planning your defense should be high on your priority list. The sooner you know how you plan on approaching the case, the better you can anticipate and plan for the future.
Attend Your Court Dates
The most important thing to remember when it comes to you and your bail is that you must attend every court date. Failure to appear in court could result in a violation of your bail and returning to jail.
