Bail money isn’t something anyone sets aside, and you never set it aside with the idea of using it to bail a loved one out of jail.
As much as you might want to help out a recently arrested loved one, if you can’t afford to help them out with bail, you shouldn’t try posting it. You should never feel that you have to risk your grocery, rent, car repair fund so your friend doesn’t have to stay in jail.
Just because you can’t afford to post bail for your loved one, it doesn’t mean you can’t be supportive and even helpful.
The first thing you should do is visit your loved one while they’re in jail. They understand that the local jail is the last place you want to be, which will make the fact that you came even more meaningful. The fact that you continue to support and care for them during this difficult time will give their spirits and self-confidence a much-needed boost. You can use this visitation as an opportunity to discuss bail options that will work for everyone.
You should suggest that your friend contact the Tennessee Bonding Company. We’re a high-quality bail bonds agency that has been serving Tennessee for several decades. We’ve built a reputation for being easy to work with, providing wonderful payment plans, and offering top-notch customer service.
