We all have unexpected emergencies, but no one is ever really prepared for an arrest. The mental toll it takes on a person can be devastating, especially when it comes to trying to scrape together enough money for bail. With today's economy, most people barely have enough money to pay bills, so coming up with what is needed to cover bail can be almost impossible. If you live in the Apple Valley area of California, you don't need to worry. The agents at Rocco Edivan Bail Bonds are available to help you figure things out and get your loved one back home where they belong. Our office is open every day of the week, 24 hours a day. All you have to do is call 951-788-2663 and speak to one of our fully licensed and bonded bail bonds agents.
Who Can You Turn To After An Arrest?
Our Rocco Edivan Bail Bonds have years of experience. They have seen it all when it comes to crazy situations and are able to work with you no matter what the circumstances. We are well known throughout the state of California and have worked hard to build a solid working relationship with both the courts and law enforcement agencies. They know us and our agents have steadily earned their respect. When you call us to start a bail bond application, we can call local law enforcement agencies to fill in the gaps if you happen to lack information that we need to complete the process. Our agents are diligent in performing their duties and will guarantee that you are treated with the utmost respect and compassion. We offer 100% total confidentiality and will go to great lengths to protect your privacy.
Understanding the Bail Bonds Process
Once you know an arrest has taken place, your first phone call should be to our office at 951-788-2663. We can complete the bail bonds application over the phone, electronically or in our office. It takes less than 30 minutes and once it's finished and the bond premium paid, our agent will be on his or her way to pick up your loved one from the jail. Bail is normally set, either through a pre-determined bail bond schedule or through an arraignment hearing held by the judge.
Once bail has been posted, the release process begins. While the booking process can take several hours, the release process can go much faster, being completed in as little as two to six hours, depending on how busy the jail is. As soon as the defendant is released, our bail bonds agent will explain their rights and responsibilities to them and provide them with their court date. As part of the agreement to their early release, the defendant must agree to attend all scheduled court hearings and not be charged with any other crimes while they are out on bond. They must also stay within the jurisdiction of the court at all times.
Fulfilling Your Obligations
Both the co-signer and the defendant have obligations that must be met while the bond agreement is in place. While the defendant must agree to attend their court hearings, the co-signer remains fully responsible for the total amount of the bond, if, for any reason, the defendant doesn't fulfill their end of the agreement. If the defendant misses court, the judge will issue an arrest warrant. If they are not returned to jail within a designated amount of time (normally 30 days), their bond will be forfeited and the co-signer must pay the full amount immediately. If the defendant can prove that missing their court date was an accident or unavoidable on their part, the judge may reinstate their bond and reschedule the court date so they can fulfill their obligations. If the arrest occurred in Apple Valley, California, the defendant must appear at the Victorville Court House located at 14455 Civic Drive in Victorville, California.
The agents of Rocco Edivan Bail Bonds take great pride in being able to help their clients get back on track after an arrest. We will even go to court with you if that is what you want. If you or a loved one have been arrested and you want the most experienced and respected bail bonds agency in your corner, call our office at 951-788-2663. We make it a point to always be available for our clients, day or night, every day of the year.
