Finding out that a friend or loved one has been arrested and taken into custody usually comes as a surprise – and often happens on a weekend. Under normal circumstances, when someone is arrested on a weekend they will have to wait until the following week before they can go before a judge. That means they’ll remain in police custody at least through the weekend. If it’s a holiday weekend or a particularly busy time, it can take even longer. Luckily, we can help you with weekend bail bonds to get your friend or loved one out of jail fast.
When you work with a bail bondsman to get your friend or loved one out of jail you don’t have to wait for the courts to open to do so. All you need to do to begin our bail process is give us a call with some identifying information about the person you want to bail out of jail. Once we have that info, we’ll use it to look them up within the jail system and verify their eligibility for bail. Once that has been established, we will have you fill out our short, simple, bail bond application forms. Then, we dispatch one of our bail agents to the jail to post the bond, and your friend or loved one will be released once they can be processed out.
The time it takes between the posting of the bond and the release of your friend or loved one will depend on how busy the jail is at the time the bond is posted. For inmates who are being housed at some of the larger Los Angeles County jails, it can take upwards of 12 hours before they can be processed out. However, for surrounding counties with less busy jails (Los Angeles County has some of the busiest jails in the world), it can be much faster.
If you have any questions or concerns about weekend bail bonds, call us any time of day or night at 855-414-BAIL to speak immediately with a licensed, professional bail bondsman who can quickly answer any and all questions you may have.
