Our children mean a lot to us – I’m sure I’m not exaggerating when I say we would do almost anything to help them when they get in trouble. That’s why it’s so tough when you get the call in the middle of the night – your son or daughter, who you just sent off to college in Colorado Mesa University (or another college in the area), was arrested last night. They need to be bailed out of jail. Some kids are prepared for college life, and some are caught off-guard by all the parties and drinking, and don’t know how to say no. Often, this leads to arrests for underage drinking, harassment, or driving under the influence. If you got a call in the middle of the night regarding your college aged child, here are a few tips for obtaining Mesa County bail bonds:
When you first get the call, it can be difficult to think straight. But, it’s important to get some key information, such as their current location (what jail they are being held at), when they were arrested, and their booking number.
The next step is to contact an experienced bail bondsman. Here at All Day All Night Bail Bonds, we work hard to help people when they need it most – in the confusing time immediately after an arrest. Make sure the bail bondsman you choose is licensed and has all the qualifications to help you.
Get Bail Bonds:
The next step will be to co-sign the bail bond, which will get your son or daughter released. It is important to understand that when you co-sign a bail bond, you are taking responsibility for them showing up in court for all their court dates. If they fail to appear, you could be caught having to pay the full bail amount.
Help Your Child:
Once you have signed the bail bond, the agent will go to the jail and your son or daughter will be released. The next step is to stand by their side and walk through the process to fight the charges against them, or work to get a plea deal that won’t have as negative of an effect on their lives and future. It’s difficult to see our children in trouble, but your involvement as a parent in helping them get out of jail is crucial for a brighter future.
