Usually, it takes between 7 and 14 days after being detained for the detainee to see a judge. Almost always, the detainee will notify family who will then be in touch with the bondsman. If you have not heard from the detainee and want to know if a bond has been set, we are more than happy to check for you. You will need to provide us with the detainee’s full name, Alien #, date of birth and country of birth. With this information, we will be able to verify if there is a bond.
