Struggles Of Getting Arrested Out Of State
Bail Bonds in Merced is one of the best bail bond companies in California. However, we cannot help you if you or a loved one is arrested outside of the state.
We are a statewide bail bond company, which means we can only operate within California, so you would need to find a local out-of-state bail bond company to assist you if you ever need bail help outside of California.
No matter what state someone is in, getting arrested is never a good thing, though getting arrested within your home state is slightly better. Dealing with an out-of-state arrest is more troublesome and will require more from the defendant. As mentioned, the defendant will have to work and communicate with a local bail bond company, but in addition to that, the defendant will need to seriously rework their schedule to prioritize the situation.
The defendant will have a court date that will occur where in the state the defendant was arrested. In some cases, the court will allow the defendant to return home and have only their lawyer present at the court hearing. However, for most people and situations, this is not the case. This means that the defendant will need to make arrangements to stay in the area for the duration of their trial, or they will need to travel back and forth if they are allowed to travel while out on bail.
In order for the defendant to allow this to happen, they will need to communicate with their family and employer to work out some solution or schedule. There will be serious consequences here. For example, a wife or husband may have to handle work and the children on her/his own at home. As for the workforce, the defendant would not be receiving paychecks for some time, or the employer may decide they have to let this employee go altogether. This adjustment will be very strenuous not only on the defendant, but for friends, family, and other acquaintances who are affected by this sudden schedule and lifestyle change.
If you are doing any traveling, whether it is for business or for pleasure, be mindful of your words and actions. You do not want something to go terribly wrong for you.
