What to Do When Your Loved One Needs You Most

When a person is arrested, it is too easy to believe that the rest of their life as they had planned, has gone down the drain. As far as they are concerned, their reputation is tainted for life. They can kiss their dream job goodbye, and some friends and family will distance themselves. They feel that they have little hope to cling to as they wait, scared, disappointed, and full of regret, for the next steps after their arrest.

This is where you can swoop in and help save the day. Remind this person that no matter what happened, what they are being accused of, and what the eventual outcome is, you are going to support them throughout this whole situation. Here are some things you can do to help your loved one:

Bail
Once your loved one learns what their bail is, contact Victorville Bail Bonds to get a bail bond. We will set you and your loved one up on a payment plan for 10% of bail itself, making it faster and more affordable for your loved one to be released. This is opposed to 100% cash bail. Victorville Bail Bonds will be available to assist you throughout the entire bail process.

Lawyer
Your loved one should be represented in court by a good lawyer. You can help them get in touch with a lawyer, and make sure it is someone who specializes in, or is at least familiar with, the crime for which your loved one is being accused of. For example, if your loved one was arrested for domestic violence, you should find a lawyer who typically fights similar cases, not a medical malpractice lawyer. Get the best lawyer you can afford.

Home Life
Your loved one will need to situate back into their daily routine as much as possible, but it will be interrupted now and then because of court and other legal obligations they may have, such as attending counseling. If you can manage it with your own schedule, help out around the house when they need you, like picking their kids up from school and babysitting for the evening while they attend their counseling session.

Emotional Support
Remind this person that you are going to be there for them, no matter what. Your loved one could put up the strongest front, but behind closed doors they may break down. What they are going through can cause stress and feelings that most others, including yourself, will never fully understand. It is your job, however, to remind them that they will get past this. This is an unexpected obstacle, but their original life plan for themselves is still ahead of them.

This can be a lot for you to take on, but remember that your loved one is feeling the burden. Plus, you will have other friends and family supporting this person, right next to you. Together, you have the power to get this person through the situation and give them hope again.

Get started by contacting Victorville Bail Bonds online or at 760-964-8377.
