When a person is arrested, it is too easy to believe that the rest of their life as they had planned it to be goes down the drain. As far as they are concerned, their reputation is tainted for life. They can kiss their dream job goodbye, and some friends and family will distance themselves. As far as they are concerned, they have little hope to cling to as they wait, scared, disappointed, and full of regret for the next steps after their arrest.
This is where you can swoop in and help save the day. Remind this person that no matter what happened, what they are being accused of, and what the eventual outcome is, you are going to support them throughout this whole situation.
Here are some things you can do to help your loved one:
Once your loved one learns what their bail is, contact Bakersfield Bail Bonds to get bail bond help. They will set you and your loved one up on a payment plan for the 10% premium, making it faster and more affordable for your loved one to be released on bail, as opposed to 100% cash bail. Bakersfield Bail Bonds will be available to assist you throughout the entire bail process.
Your loved one should be represented in court by a good lawyer. You can help them get in touch with a lawyer and make sure it is someone who specializes in or is at least familiar with the crime for which your loved one is being accused of. For example, if your loved one was arrested for domestic violence, you should find a lawyer who typically fights similar cases, not a medical malpractice lawyer. Get the best lawyer you can.
Your loved one will need to situate back into their daily routine as much as possible, but it will be interrupted now and then because of court and other legal obligations they may have, such as attending counseling. If you can manage it with your own schedule, help out around the house when they need you, like picking their kids up from school and babysitting for the evening while they attend their counseling session.
Remind this person that you are going to be there for them, no matter what – but do not overdo it. Your loved one could put up the strongest front but behind closed doors they may break down. What they are going through is stressful and they are probably feeling that people will never fully understand their situation. It is your job, however, to remind them that they will get past this. This is an unexpected obstacle, but their original life plan for themselves is still ahead.
This can be a lot for you to take on, but remember that your loved one is feeling the burden. Plus, you will have other friends and family supporting this person right next to you. Together, you have the power to get this person through the situation and give them hope again.
