Should You Turn Yourself In?

If you find out that there is a warrant out for your arrest, you face a tough choice. Should you turn yourself in, or should you try to evade the police?

Perhaps the best thing about turning yourself in is that your willingness to respond to the warrant will likely impress the judge and inspire them to set a low bail.

Another thing you can do when you decide to turn yourself in is to contact Lynwood Bail Bonds before you’re charged. While we won’t be able to write a bail bond before you’re arraigned, we can answer all of your questions, go over the bail bond contract with you, and even determine if you’ll likely need a co-signer or collateral to secure your bail bond.

The great thing about doing all of this prior to turning yourself in is that it speeds up the process, so you’ll quickly be released from jail and out on bail.

Is Traveling While Your Out on Bail a Possibility

The travel restrictions you face will likely differ from the travel restrictions that are placed on someone else who was arrested the same day as you were. There are a few reasons for this.

If your travel is going to be strictly limited, you’ll be told what those restrictions are before you’re officially released from jail. If nothing was said to you about traveling and restrictions and you need to travel somewhere, even if it’s just an overnight getaway a couple of hundred miles away, it’s in your best interest to contact your bail bonds agency and discuss the situation with them. Questions they’ll likely ask are:

  • Where you’re going
  • Why you’re traveling
  • How long you’ll be gone
  • The exact date you’ll be back

Based on this information, the bail bonds agency will likely tell you if it’s okay for you to travel or if you should stay home instead. If you are cleared for travel, don’t be surprised if the bail bonds agency doesn’t ask you to touch base with them as soon as you return home.

If you’ve been arrested, it’s in your best interest to contact Lynwood Bail Bonds right away. Our consultations are completely free and available 24/7.
