What Documents Do I Need Before Starting the Bail Process?


One of the first things we’re asked when it comes to bail is what documents we need before we can start the process. You’ll be surprised to learn that we don’t require a lot of documentation and it’s things you can quickly locate.

The first thing we’ll need is a picture ID. We need the idea of every person involved in the process. That means if you’re co-signing for a loved one, we’ll need yours as well as you’re loved one.

It is important to make sure your ID is current. An expired driver’s license or California identification card is not considered a valid ID.

Proof of residence is the next thing we need. This doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Most people use a utility bill or bank statement. You simply need something official that shows your address. Utility bills are nice because they have your address on them even if all of your mail goes to a P.O. box.

The last thing we need is proof of income. The best thing to prove you are gainfully employed is a pay stub or tax papers. We need this before we can even think about working with you to create a payment plan.

Depending on the circumstances, we may require collateral. When this is the case, we will need the title or deed of whatever you’re submitting as collateral.
