How Should You Approach Your Case for a Leave While on Bond or Bail?

Trouble has a funny way of creeping into life when you least expect it. And before you know it, you are sitting in jail for making a simple mistake. Your next move is to find a way of getting out of jail. And what you will find is that the most popular option is to obtain a bail bond. These insurance policies guarantee that you will show up for your court date, and they also allow you to get on with life. But you might have some questions about travel if you have never been through the bond process. Here are some things that you will need to know before trying to leave on a trip.

What You Need To Do Before Leaving on the Trip

Communication is the key when deciding whether or not you can leave for a trip with a bond in place. Everyone needs to know where you are going and when you will return.

  • You will need to speak with your lawyer, who will be able to present your case before the judge. The judge will need to allow for your time away. Once the judge has granted his approval, your following steps will be more manageable.
  • The second step is to contact your bond agent and provide them with all the information they need. Your agent will provide you with the paperwork you need to have while you travel.
  • When you leave for the trip, you will need to keep your paperwork with you at all times. There are times when the paperwork trail will fail to catch up with what you have been provided. The last thing you want to have happened is traveling and being detained because of a paperwork error.
  • You will need to file all the correct paperwork to keep your request from being denied. The judge is the one person that has the final say regarding your trip. But you will still need to communicate with all parties involved before you leave for your vacation or business trip.
