Writ Bond

Writ Bond: Faster Release from Custody

Call a Plano Criminal Lawyer for Writ Bonds

After an arrest on a criminal charge in the Plano area, one of the first steps in the process is an appearance before a judge to set bail. Awaiting this appearance can take time, based upon the caseload, day of the week, time of day, and staffing—time that you cannot spare. You do not want to spend hours or days sitting in a holding cell that is overcrowded and overfilled with a number of people who are accused of a variety of criminal offenses. When stuck in custody awaiting a court appearance, you can get help on being released through the filing of what is called a "writ bond."

This writ bond can allow you to bypass the period of waiting for your scheduled appearance in front of the judge and be released—allowing you to return home.

A writ bond is a specific type of bail bond in which a set fee schedule is used as the bond amount, based upon the crime for which you were arrested. At The Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, we can assist those who are trapped in custody awaiting their appearance before the judge magistrate. The writ bond allows the person charged to bypass the waiting period and get released quickly. We know the importance of being released from custody; we can act fast on your behalf. If your loved one is in jail awaiting an appearance, contact our firm at once for assistance in getting them released to you.

Does Your Case Qualify for a Writ Bond?

There are some offenses that do not allow release from custody on a writ bond. If you are trying to get out of jail as quickly as possible, we can review your situation and determine whether you are eligible for the writ bond or the next best course of action, if you are not. If the offense does not allow for a writ bond to be filed, we can initiate other actions to help you to pursue your release.

Writ bonds may not be applicable for the following:

  • Felony Arrests
  • Traffic Ticket Arrests
  • Assault Arrests

It is extremely important that you do not go to a bail hearing without our Plano criminal lawyer at your side. The bail amount set by the court can vary widely, and we work with our clients to seek release without the need for bail (on your own recognizance) whenever possible, and to reduce the bail amount to a reasonable level when a release without bond is not achievable. We can provide you with all of the information and contacts you need regarding bail bonds, your criminal charges, your chances of success in defending against the charge in court and all other matters of concern.

Take the First Step: Contact Our Firm!

You can contact our firm by phone to discuss the potential option of filing a writ bond, and we can quickly determine whether this is possible in your specific case. Once it is established that you are eligible for a writ bond, we will contact you in person where you are incarcerated to get the paperwork completed. The next step is to file the writ bond with the county jail, which legally forces the bail amount to be set on an immediate basis. Once this is completed, the facility where you are being held will be informed that you are to be released and you can return to your home and family.
