Your first reaction will probably be shock followed by panic. What do you do? How can you help? Who do you call for help, especially at this hour of the night? Thankfully, Altadena Bail Bonds is there to help.
The best thing to do is to remain as calm as possible, as the good news is, there is help available. Altadena Bail Bonds is a highly professional bail bonds company, able to assist with having a defendant released from custody. Dedicated to assisting defendants and their families, they have rightfully earned the reputation of being the top bail bonds firm in Southern California.
When someone is arrested, they will be taken to a local law enforcement station for booking and processing. There is no set amount of time for this as it will greatly depend on how busy the station is, and what the charges are. A defendant is not allowed to make their phone call until the processing has been completed.
A lot of people will wait until the bail amount has been set, before deciding whether or not they need assistance from a bail bonds firm. There are others however, who do not want to leave their loved one in custody any longer than necessary, so will seek out the assistance of a bail bonds company immediately to get the release process started. Very few people are able to raise the bail alone, and thus need the assistance of Altadena Bail Bonds.
In order for us to assist you, we will need some important information. This is information you should gather at the time of receiving the phone call from the defendant.
The arrested person’s full legal name, including middle name/s
Where they are currently being held
What they have been charged with
Being able to supply this information, will enable us to get an immediate start on the release process. You will then be required to fill out some paperwork, and organize payment of the non refundable fee.
At this point, all the terms and conditions will be explained to you, as well as your responsibilities as the co-signer for the defendant.
So when should you call us for help? Idealistically, straight after you’ve gotten off the phone with the defendant. You can contact us on (626) 768-9518. We will be there for you right when you need us the most. You can find even more valuable information by visiting our website.
