Attorney Writ Bonds - Get Out Of Jail Right Now
Did the jail or a member of the jail staff tell you that you will require an attorney writ bond in order to get somebody released from their jail? Many times when a Judge or Magistrate is not on duty at the specific jail, a member of the jail staff may inform you that you need an attorney to do what is called a Writ Bond. That's where we come in to assist you with your current situtation.
When somebody is arrested, he or she must be brought in front of a Magistrate in order to have a bail bond set on their charges. This can take hours or even days depending upon the Magistrate's hours and number of people incarcerated and/or arrested and waiting to go before the Magistrate. The Magistrate will review the charges, notifiy the defendant of their rights, and set a bail bond.
However, in some cities and counties, the Magistrates may work very few hours per day seeing new inmates and setting bonds. In addition, some city and county Magistrates do not work on the weekends which means if a Magistrate does not work on the weekends, your friend or loved one will have to wait in jail over the weekend in order to be seen by the Magistrate on Monday.
So, how does an attorney writ bond work? Under certain circumstances and in certain criminal cases an attorney may get a bond set for an inmate without that inmate having to actually wait to see a Magistrate. This means that the attorney may get a writ bond set and immediately begin the process of having them released from the jail.
Who qualifies for a Dallas County Lawyer Writ? In most instances, this type of release may be used for Class A and Class B Misdemeanors. It does not cover Felonies or Class C traffic citations. However, if an friend or loved one is in jail on a Class A or Class B Misdemeanor and has additional outstanding warrants for traffic citations, we may assist you in making the proper arrangements to clear the traffic warrants as well.
Some examples of cases in which a Writ Bond may be acceptable would be Driving While License Suspended, Driving While Intoxcated (DWI), Theft (Misdemeanor), and Assault. There are several other criminal charges which may be covered by an Attorney Writ Bond, but you would need to consult with Bill Knox about whether or not we can post an Attorney Writ Bond.
What Is The Difference Between Bail Bonds, Writ Bond and Cash Bond?
What is the difference between bail bonds, an attorney writ bond and a cash bond? A bail bond is posted when bond has already been set for an inmate by the Magistrate or Judge on duty. Once a bail bond (or bail bonds) has been set for an inmate, you may only post either a bail bond or a cash bond. Writ Bonds may not be set once a bond is already set by the Magistrate. A bail bond may either be paid in full by cash or posted by a licensed bondsman or attorney.
A cash bond is a bond which may be paid in cash directly to the jail for the full amount of the bond. For instance, if an inmate has a $10,000 bond, you may pay the $10,000 directly to the jail. Once the case is finished, you will receive your $10,000 back from the county. If you post bail through a lawyer or a bonding company, you will only pay a portion of the bond and that money is generally non-refundable. Why? Because in order to secure the release of the person in jail, the bondsman is putting up their $10,000 so that you don't have to come up with all the money. However, they charge a fee for basically borrowing their money.
