Can You Be Bailed Out of Jail in the Middle of the Night

If you’re wondering if you can be bailed out of jail in the middle of the night, the answer is yes. In fact, a surprising number of the calls we receive from people who need a bail bond happen in the middle of the night.

If the clock has struck midnight and you find yourself in need of a bail bond, here are a few things you should know.

First, don’t assume that because you’ve been charged and booked that you can be instantly bailed out of jail. While there are some minor offenses that have pre-set bail and don’t require a judge’s approval, there are others that require you to go to a bail hearing where a judge will listen to the details surrounding your case and decide what a fair bail amount is. If you require a bail hearing, the hearing will take place during normal court hours and not in the middle of the night. Until the hearing is completed, you can’t be bailed out.

The good news is that once the bail is set, there is nothing preventing you from approaching us about a bail bond. Even if it’s the middle of the night, you’re free to contact us for a free consultation. Once you’ve signed the bail bonds contract and we’ve worked out a payment plan, we’ll write the bail bond and take it the jail. As soon as the night clerk processes the paperwork, you’ll be released. It’s amazing how much we’re able to accomplish in the middle of the night.

Our willingness to write a bail bond in the middle of the night is just one of the reasons you should contact us after you’ve been arrested. Additional reasons include:

  • 0% Interest payment plans 
  • 20% Discount 
  • Phone approvals 
  • No hidden fees 
  • No collateral for working signers 
  • Outstanding customer service 

Our consultations are available 24/7. No matter what time of the day or night you contact us, you’ll connect with a live bail bonds expert who is willing and able to answer all of your questions. You can click the Chat Now link or call 831-422-8800.


Important Things Everyone Should Know About Bail Bonds

Most people don’t bother to educate themselves about the bail bonds process until they or a loved one is arrested. Most people assume that they have learned everything they need to know from various procedural shows. Spoiler alert! TV doesn’t tell the full story. Here are a few things we wish everyone knew about the bail bonds business.

Bail is so High that No One Can Afford it

Yes, bail can be quite expensive. How high a person’s bail is set isn’t our decision, it’s a judge and they have their own reasons for setting bail at a certain rate. As a bail bonds agency, we try to eliminate some of the financial reasons some people couldn’t afford to take advantage of bail. We strive to make it affordable for everyone. We do this by:

  • Only charging a 10% fee
  • Offering a 20% discount to qualified clients
  • Allowing clients to use a co-signer and post collateral
  • Creating flexible, interest-free payment programs

We Harass Our Clients

We don’t understand why bail bond agents are always portrayed as pushy and obnoxious. The truth is that while we’re willing to answer any questions you have about your bail bond and the terms of your bail, as long as you are diligent about showing up at all of your required court dates, you’ll rarely hear from us.

If you or a loved one needs bail, we strongly urge you to contact Morgan Hill Bail Bonds. Our consultations are free and available 24/7. All you have to do is call 831-422-8800  or click the Chat Now link. We can’t wait to hear from you!
