Fairfax County Bail Bonds
Getting arrested has a lot of grave implications upon an individual, the foremost of which is on their liberty. Being unable to exercise freedom in movement can severely affect the life of an accused. Fortunately, there is the legal relief known as bail bonds, wherein the parties involved can get into an arrangement with an agency such as ours here at Chances Bail Bonds and can be set up to temporarily let the accused out on bail to better work on the details of his or her case.

Exceptions and Time Frame for Bail
There are times during the day when bail cannot be posted for court and operational purposes. Normal time when posting a bond at Fairfax County Adult detention center is 4 to 6 hours; time may vary depending upon scheduled processes throughout the week.
Requirements to Admission to Bail (Virginia Bail Bonding laws)
When arrested on a criminal misdemeanor or felony charge, defendants are brought in front of the magistrate for the purpose of a bond hearing. Magistrates decide the terms of bail according to these criteria.
The magistrate may release the accused on a written promise to appear in court with or without an unsecured bail bond. However, if the magistrate is not reasonably sure that the accused will appear for trial, he or she has the discretion to require the execution of a bail bond with surety in a reasonable amount and impose such other conditions deemed reasonably necessary to ensure appearance at trial. The monetary sum of the bail bond can be forfeited if the accused fails to appear in court or violates any condition of bail. If the accused poses an unreasonable danger to him or others, or if it is likely that the accused will not appear in court, the magistrate may hold the accused in jail without bail.
In the event this takes place, the defendant will appear before the judge for arraignment court the next morning. For further details contact our professional staff.
