What To Do If You Have A Warrant

Posted by on January 16, 2015 in Bail Blog | 0 comments

Having a warrant can make your life difficult. Looking over your shoulder everywhere you go trying to figure out if that moment is going to be the time your going to go to jail can be very stressful. At Mac’s Bail Bonds 25% of the clients we help are defendants calling us with warrants out for their arrest. Clearing a warrant is a fairly simple process which can be done within a matter of hours.

Here are the list of steps we take when clearing a warrant:

Step 1, The Information: When our bail bond service gets a call about a defendant that has a potential warrant, our first step is verifying that the warrant is active and figuring out the court location, charges, and bail bond amount. This is the most crucial step when clearing a warrant because it is important to know exactly what your bail bond amount is before you turn your self in.

Step 2, Getting Prepared: After knowing what the charges, court location, and bail bond amounts are we can now proceed with setting up the bail bonds. This process is the same as setting up a normal bond including needing a qualified co-signer and or collateral as well as going over the premium fees associated with the bond.

Step 3, Locations: There are only two places in Colorado to be able to do true walk through bail bonds to clear warrants. This is Denver and Adams County. You can only clear Denver warrants at Denver and you can only clear Adams County warrants at Adams. If your warrant is not through one of these court locations don’t worry. We can still clear your warrant fairly quickly without you having to get arrested. The next best option is Glendale Police Department. Glendale Police Department can clear your warrant in less than 30 minutes, but the department will only do these on an on call basis meaning our bail bond agents have to call ahead of time to see if an officer is free to clear it and at times it can be tough to get it done here due to the availability. Now the last option when clearing the warrant is the Aurora Municipal Jail. Aurora Municipal can get defendants in and out of Aurora Facility within an hour. Aurora can usually always take in defendants with warrants. The bail bond agent would meet the defendant and co-signer at Aurora to turn the defendant in, then post the bail bond after the defendant is booked in. The process at Aurora is five times faster than most of every county jail in Colorado.

Step 4, Warrants Cleared: Now that your warrant has been cleared, it is the responsibility of the co-signer to ensure the defendant goes to all court dates pertaining to that case until the bail bond is released. Our team of agents are here to answer questions about court procedures, provide consents, court dates and times, and much more. We can not give legal advice, but we can answer procedural questions.

 

We strive to meet and exceed customer expectations every time we post bail. We have office locations that specialize in Denver Bail Bonds, Arapahoe Bail Bonds, and Aurora Bail Bonds, but can post bail at every jail in Colorado. If you or someone that you know has a warrant, give Mac’s Bail Bonds a call to get it cleared.
