Is Paying Your Own Bail an Option?

Is Paying Your Own Bail an Option?

In the cases of minor offenses, it’s likely the bail will be relatively low. The lower the bail amount, the more you’re going to wonder if paying your own bail is an option.

The simple answer is yes, you are free to post your own bail. The problem is that while you’re legally allowed to post your own bail, actually doing so isn’t easy. The biggest challenge you’ll face is how you’re supposed to post your bail while you’re stuck in a jail cell. You’re not allowed to use a check to post bail and unless you had a pocketful of money on you when you were arrested, it’s unlikely that you have enough cash on hand to cover the bail amount. And you shouldn’t expect to be let out of jail long enough to run to the nearest ATM for cash.

The odds are good that even though you’ve decided to post your own bail, you’ll have to ask a friend or family member to put up the cash until you’re free and able to pay them back.

Or you could contact Barstow Bail Bonds.

Most people assume that a bail bond is only an option when bail is set at the high five figure, but that’s not the case. A bail bond is an option no matter how high or low a bail is set at.

We use this experience to quickly post the bail bond so that you’re released sooner rather than later.
