What Happens After Someone You Love is Arrested

After federal agents have detained your loved one, he or she will appear before the judge for an initial hearing. During the hearing, they will learn what charges they’re facing and some of the particular rights they have. Your loved one may be held in jail until trial, or they may be released under certain conditions, depending on the specific details of the case. An attorney can fight for a release, giving you time to comfort your loved one during this hectic time. Call Grabel & Associates to learn more about what you can do in the initial stages of your loved one’s case.

What to Do After a Loved One is Arrested

The first thing you should do after your loved one has been arrested is secure the services of a quality defense attorney immediately following an arrest.

Next, attempt to find out the time and location of their initial hearing so you can be there to support them. If the federal agents gave you any information, you should be able to research the name of the court online and find out everything you need to know. You can also call the courthouse to see if they have any information on the time and date of your loved one’s hearing.

After securing a seasoned defense attorney, and finding out where the hearing is, you should go to the hearing and check in with the office beforehand. They may have questions about your loved one that could affect the case. Once the hearing is over, hopefully you’ll get to leave the courtroom together.
