My family member/friend has been arrested. How do I bail them out?

When police arrest an individual, the person may be held in custody for a period of time or brought before the court to determine if the individual should be released. Bringing the individual to court is known as a bail hearing. These hearings take place relatively quickly after the arrest. As a family member or friend seeking to post bail, you must satisfy the court that you have the necessary funds and may need to meet other conditions quickly to ensure that by the time the person is brought to court, they can be released on bail. At Pollock & Company, our lawyers can assist with this process.
