11 Nov How Long Do You Have to Post Bail?
The need for bail can arise without warning. As such, most people are not prepared to post their loved one’s bail. They need time to get enough money for the bail bond, but they are afraid they will miss the window to post bail entirely. Luckily for them, the time limit for posting bail is very forgiving.
While there is a time limit to posting bail, that limit is dependent on the length of the person’s trial period. You have until the court reaches a verdict on your loved one. After that point, a person can’t be bailed out. Once the court has decided whether your loved one is guilty or innocent, they either no longer need the bail or can no longer be bailed out because they are serving their sentence.
The one problem with waiting to post bail, is that the bail amount can change. Sometimes judges will alter the bail amount after they have reviewed the case. They may decide that the bail is too high and lower it. However, they are also just as likely to raise the bail amount, meaning it will cost more to bail out your loved one.
