Did you go through a bail bondsman in order to get out of jail before your trial date? If you did, there are several important things you need to do in order to stay out of jail.

Show Up to Your Court Dates
The fastest way to have your bail revoked is by failing to appear for your court date(s). Bail, and bail bonds, is predicated on the agreement that you will arrive to court for your trial. If you fail to appear, your bail is revoked and a warrant will be issued for your arrest. It is unlikely that you will be able to post bail again if your bail is revoked.
Abide by Any Restrictions Set by the Judge
As a condition of bail, the judge may set almost any restrictions on you that they feel are appropriate. They will often say that you cannot be arrested again, and that you must avoid certain places and people. If you are charged with a drug or alcohol offense, the judge may order you to attend counseling sessions, AA or NA meetings, or submit to drug tests.
Failing to follow these restrictions could result in revocation and incarceration. While some of the restrictions may seem unnecessary, the judge usually imposes them to prevent the same circumstances that caused your first arrest to be repeated. They would rather not see you charged again, especially if they have the power to prevent it.
Ask For Help
After you’ve been arrested, it can be hard to ask for help. Someone helped bail you out, so you don’t want to impose any more than you feel you already have. It is important that you move past those feelings and ask for help when you need it. Ask friends and family members for rides or for help dealing with your case. Make sure to stay in contact with your lawyer to find out how you can help build your case.
You can always contact ASAP Bail Bonds if you have questions, too. We will help you to the best of our ability.
