What To Do If A Friend Or Loved One Gets Arrested

Last updated 7 years ago

Having someone you care about get arrested is always an emotionally intense and deeply stressful situation, but there are things you can do to help your loved one. To learn what you should do if someone you care about is arrested, read on:

Stay Calm

It’s difficult, but in order to get through an extremely stressful situation like the arrest of a loved one, you’re going to have to remain calm. One good way to maintain your equilibrium is to keep your mind on the goals you need to accomplish in order to get your loved one out of jail. Make a list of tasks that need to be completed, and keep your mind fixed on that list. It will help you stay cool in the face of a crisis.

Find a Reputable Bail Bond Agent

Finding a reputable bail bond agent is perhaps the most important part of the process of taking care of your friend after an arrest. A bail bond agent can find out where your loved one was taken and negotiate for his or her release. In some cases, if the crime isn’t severe, your bail bond agent may be able to get your friend out of jail within hours of arrest. In addition, bail bond agents can provide the cash for bail that most of us don’t have available immediately.

Contact a Lawyer

Depending upon the severity of the charges against your friend, he or she may need a lawyer. If the crime is serious enough, you will definitely want to contact a lawyer. An attorney can stop an interrogation and remind your loved one to be quiet and not give the police any information that could be used at trial.
