A trip to Costa Mesa that ends up with a person getting arrested may quickly turn into a nightmare. If a person does not get the help they need, they may end up spending more time in custody than they want because Costa Mesa Police Department can hold hold inmates overnight, but they often transfer arrestees to County. Our Costa Mesa bail bond agents are ready 24/7 to provide the help that an individual needs when they find themselves in this situation and may want to prevent a transfer. A fast phone call is all that is needed and the number to call is 714-786-4111.
Our Costa Mesa Bail Bonds Service
We have posted many bonds at the Costa Mesa Jail and are familiar with their specific booking and release procedures. We know how the system works when a person is taken to the Costa Mesa Station Jail off Fair Drive across the street from the Orange County Fairgrounds.
It is the process of getting released from jail on bail that confuses many people. If a person does not know how it works they can spend a lot of time trying to get a person out without success. Our agents know that in order to get released on bail a person first has to be cleared for bail. That requires a person to be checked to make sure they have no outstanding warrants. If they have been cleared for bail, the amount of bail can be set and the bond can be posted.
After the bail is posted, the process of getting released can start. This can take as little as 10 minutes or if transferred to the Orange County Jail, as long as several hours. An individual has to be medically cleared and then the paperwork has to be completed and submitted. There can be delays during this process that are not within anyone’s control. If the facility is understaffed or if it is a busy night, it will take longer to get released. We are only minutes from the station. It will not take our bail agent long to get to the lobby to post the bond and prevent a transfer to county. Compared to other bail bond companies that are NOT local, it can be a difference of hours for a person to be released.
While there are some things that are not within a person’s control in how long it takes to get released, it is important to control all of the things that can be controlled. That is where we come in. Our agents know what it takes to get a person released and will not cause any additional delays in the process. They are there to help a person get out of jail as fast as possible.
What We Need?
In order to get a person out on bail, the first thing that we need is the name of the person arrested. This is necessary. The second thing, where they are held, is not necessary, but it can help. If the location where a person has been taken to is known, it will speed up the process. If it is not known, our agents are trained to find out where the person is. They will make sure the delay that is created by the lack of information is minimal.
Bail Process In Costa Mesa
Once we know where a defendant is housed and have their information, we can start the paper work. An indemnitor is required to co-siger for a defendant agreeing to guarantee that the defendant will appear to each and every court date. Our paper work takes about 15 minutes and can be completed electronically to expedite the process. We are fully mobile and can complete the entire process in the lobby of the police department, our office or we can even go to the indemnitor at no additional cost.
Once we have posted the bail, the defendant will be released from the facility. It will be necessary for the defendant to meet with the agent and to fill out their paperwork. During this meeting a person will be made aware of any court dates that have been set. It is not always necessary to get a lawyer right away, but it is recommended for anyone that has been arrested for a felony crime to contact a criminal attorney right away. That person can give them the legal advice they need to avoid getting into more trouble. We will help provide the guidance that is needed to put the person’s feet back on the street and the jail a thing of the past.
