How To Spend Your Time After Being Bailed Out Of Jail

Judy Alexander

Bail is offered by US courts because it is mandated by the US Constitution. It is something you definitely want to take advantage of. However, bail is out of reach for most Americans because of how expensive it is. Therefore, if you find yourself in prison, it's a good idea to use your phone call to contact a family member so they can arrange to have you bailed out of jail with the help of a surety bail bondsman.

How a Bond Service Works

A bail bond service reduces the amount your family member will have to raise to be able to bail you out of jail. The surety bail bondsman will then pay for the rest of your bail and you will be able to return to your life and will also be better able to craft a legal defense with access to more resources.

What to Do After You Have Been Bailed Out

After you have been bailed out of jail, it's important to make all of your scheduled court appearances. If you miss a court appearance, you may forfeit bail and a warrant might be issued for your arrest. However, if you have a valid excuse, the judge might schedule a new court date.

There will also likely be bail conditions. These can include:

  • Remaining in the state in which you were arrested
  • Attending anger management classes
  • Abstaining from drugs and alcohol

You will also want to get in touch with a criminal defense attorney who will help you craft a more solid defense so that you will be more likely to win your case. It's important to remain honest with your attorney and your bail bondsman. Also, make sure to keep in touch with both.

Advantages of Not Being in Jail

While out of jail, you should also spend more time with your family. Facing criminal charges can be very stressful and you will need to maintain your support network. Spending time with your family will help balance your life and may help correct some of the issues that lead to you being arrested in the first place.

If you are employed, you will continue to have an income and you won't have to worry about losing your job. You will also be able to avoid the unpleasant experience of being in jail. Therefore, if you ever find yourself in prison, make sure you get someone to contact a surety bail bond service. 

For more information about surety bail bonds, contact a local company.
