While it may be a relief when one is finally released on bail and you are able to sleep in your own bed, but it, unfortunately, is not the end to the whole ordeal and bail conditions need to be met. So while you enjoy the freedom, here is a quick summary of how to stay out of trouble while out on bail.
Show up to your court date
To avoid any issues that could land you back in jail, make sure that appearing at your court appearances is first priority. If you do happen to miss an appearance however, just be sure to let your bail bondsman know.
Spend time with loved ones
It’s understandable that things can be stressful while everything gets worked out but spend as much time with family as you can, it’s good for the spirit.
Stay away from trouble
If you get arrested again while out on bail, your chances of getting another bail set diminish greatly. It’s really important to avoid any run-ins with the law at this time.
Communicate with your bail bondsman
Unless deemed a flight risk or it is specifically stated as terms of release, you should still be able to leave the city or even state but no matter what always remember to stay in communication with your bail bonds agent when making any travel plans so that they are properly updated.
Avoid hanging out with bad influences
Going with the stay out of trouble advice, put yourself and your safety first. Don’t risk violating the terms of your release by getting caught up with someone else’s misdeeds.
