Many people, when trying to bail out their family member, want to know how long it will take. For obvious reasons, they want their loved one out of jail as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, there are some jails that do not work very quickly at all.
Once we send the bail bond out, it is up to the jail to process it. Depending on the jail, that could be as short as a few hours, or as long as a few days. This varying time is affect by the size of the jail, and the county where the jail is located.
For instance, jails in Los Angeles County are notoriously crowded, which means they process paperwork much slower. It usually takes at least a day for an LA County jail to process the release paperwork. Meanwhile, in some smaller counties, we can have someone bailed out of jail in as little as 2 hours.
