Nobody wants to find themselves in an arrest situation, but an out of state arrest brings a whole new level of difficulty to the game. Luckily, all is not lost. With the proper guidance and advice, your jail stay, even out of state, can be short, even if it’s not sweet.
First Thing’s First
When you are arrested out of state, the first thing you want to do is call a family member or friend that can help you with the details of the process. This person will make the phone calls and complete the paperwork as required.
Bondman to Bondsman
A state to state, or transfer bond, is slightly more difficult to maneuver than your typical bail. You will, in essence, use two bail bondsmen, one of which is in your residing state, and the other in the arresting state. These two individuals will complete the process for you, but will also charge a state-set fee for state-to-state transfer bond execution.
It’s important to contact an attorney for your legal appearances to keep from missing important court dates or other obligations. Typically, the courts allow an attorney to appear on your behalf in all situations when speaking of a state to state case. It’s also crucial to visit your in-state bondsman as soon as you return to complete any paperwork or financial obligations needed.
Remember, the states of Illinois, Oregon, Kentucky, and Wisconsin have a no-bond statute.
