My child has been arrested. Where do I go from here?

Contact The Farrish Law Firm, L.P.A.

Always hire an attorney. They are practiced in this area and can communicate clearly to the correct people and will streamline the process and will use your time efficiently so that you can focus on caring for your child. Hiring at attorney can be pivotal in the situation because they will instruct the families through the entire process. From discussing bail, to discussing diversion programs, you will have someone on your side and fighting for you.

When kids are being held post-arrest and a parent calls, the first conversation is typically about bail and how to post that. The questions usually center on property, paying any type of bond or bail, how much of that can be paid right away, and when it can all happen.

Often, people will go on the Internet and talk to friends and come up with incorrect, bad advice. An experienced, compassionate lawyer who has dealt with these cases before knows the law and how it is interpreted. Friends, however much we trust them and love them, have different experiences at different times. Their advice can come from a very caring place, but unfortunately, it will probably be misinformed. Laws change and circumstances are different for all cases.

The Internet is obviously a useful tool, but it should not be used to try to get your kid out of jail. A lawyer essentially spends all of his or her time dealing with situations exactly like this, and we know the current laws and relevant cases.
