- Before turning yourself into police after receiving notice that there is a warrant for your arrest, we can advise you of your rights and options regarding the bond.
- We will then contact the police department for information. They will tell us if a bond amount has been assigned by a judge. If it has been assigned, it means that the judge assigning the arrest warrant has decided how much the bond should be. This cannot be changed by the police, and can only be changed by a judge in court.
- If a bond has not been assigned, the police will determine the amount of the bond when you turn yourself in. However, this can be an unpredictable situation, so you need to be prepared before you turn yourself in. That is why it is always in your best interest to seek the assistance of a lawyer before turning yourself in.
