When it comes to bailing someone out of jail, your mind can be racing in different directions. Sometimes it can be difficult to think clearly on what you are doing. You just want to get your friend or family member out of jail and on with their lives. Mentally and emotionally it can be even more stressful for the person signing the bail bond then the person sitting in jail waiting to be released.
It is in these conditions where we can make mistakes based on poor judgment.
People do make mistakes that end up sending them to jail. Even people we hold in high regards can end up behind bars thanks to a careless act. Some people are behind bars because they made a poor lifestyle choice, and jail is the outcome of it.
When Signing A Bail Bond
When signing a bail bond for someone, it is important to keep this in mind. You are putting a lot at risk to get this person out of jail. Don’t get into trouble because they did.
If the person you are bailing out is a responsible person with a steady job and lifestyle, then bailing them out is much more likely to be safe. In order to keep their job and life going, they will appear in court on their court date and you don’t have to worry about paying the full bail price. It is also helpful to only bail out someone you are close to. A family member or close friend is more likely to not put you at risk.
If the person requesting you to bail them out is less than responsible, it may not be worth taking the chance. If they have a hard time holding down a job or often changes their place of residence, then they have less holding them down. It is easier for them to leave town and skip on the court date, leaving you with the bill.
