The Bail Bonds Process
If your loved one has been arrested, the bail bond process should begin as soon as bail has been in set. In Virginia, the defendant must appear in front of a magistrate for the first step of the arraignment process. Once they have been booked and processed into the system, they will be held in jail until the next business day when they will be sent to arraignment. The charges pending against them will determine whether they see a magistrate or the judge. A magistrate is allowed to set bail for minor offenses, while more severe crimes must be passed on to the judge. In certain cases, normally those that are severe, the defendant's attorney will be asked to make a bond motion.
As soon as bail has been set, the bail bond process can begin. A bail bond application can be processed over the phone or in our office. We will ask you for very specific information such as the defendant's full name, address, place of employment, date of birth, where the arrest took place, where the defendant is being held, the nature of the charges and what bail has been set. With that information, we can complete the application and make arrangements to secure the bond.
