Walk-Thru Bonds – Before Turning Yourself In…

Texas Walk-Thru Bail Bonds

Southern Bail Bonds provides Texas Walk-Thru bail bonds in Texas for defendants with warrants.

You got a notice in the mail that you have a warrant out for your arrest. Your first thought: “WTH!!” It’s that traffic ticket you forgot to pay. Or maybe you didn’t show up for a scheduled court appearance because you moved and forgot to notify the court of your new address so you didn’t get the court date notification. Whatever the case, if you’ve got a warrant then before you run down to the courthouse and turn yourself in there are some things you need to be aware of, and some things you should definitely do FIRST!

Know Exactly What You Are Being Charged With – if you aren’t sure what the charges are you’ll want to verify exactly what the charges are before you just walk into the county jail. Make a few phone calls to the city or county (or whoever initiated the warrant) to find out what the charges are.

Is the Charge Bondable? – Most charges are bondable, but in Texas there are some that aren’t. For example: if you have a traffic citation and you previously set up a payment plan and then didn’t make the required payments, those warrants aren’t bondable. Those turn into fines, and most of the time they have to be paid in full. But most regular citations where the warrant is issued because you missed court are easily bondable through Southern Bail Bonds in Texas.

Once you know what the warrant is for you can then start to make some informed decisions. Is your warrant for something that can be handled quickly and easily? Determine if it’s a situation where your bondsman to go with you to do a Walk-Thru bond to lift the warrant and reset the court date. Southern Bail Bonds can assist with Walk-Thru bonds, and this may be your easiest, quickest and least expensive option.

Maybe the charge requires an attorney, or an attorney AND a bond. If so, then maybe your attorney can handle both. Just know that all attorney’s don’t handle bonds so you may still need to have a Texas bondsman post a bond for your charge.

If you decide to go it alone and just turn yourself in, make sure you at least have the phone number of a friend or a bondsman, because you’re probably gonna need both.
