Making Bail After a Queens Domestic Violence Arrest

Making Bail After a Domestic Violence Arrest in Queens

Getting arrested for domestic violence in Queens can be an overwhelming and scary experience. You likely have a lot of questions about what happens next and what your options are. This article provides an overview of the bail process and things you should know if trying to make bail after a domestic violence arrest in Queens.

The Arrest and Booking Process

If police respond to a domestic dispute call and have probable cause to believe an act of violence occurred, they are required under New York law to make an arrest 16.

 Even if the alleged victim does not want to press charges, the mandatory arrest policy still applies.After arrest, you will be taken to the police station for booking. This involves getting your fingerprints and mugshot taken. The police will also document your charges and any statements made. An arraignment hearing typically happens within 24 hours.

Determining Bail

At your arraignment, the judge reviews the charges and allegations against you. They decide whether to release you on your own recognizance (no bail), set a bail amount that must be paid for release, or deny bail altogether 24.

 Factors considered include:
  • Criminal history
  • Severity of charges
  • Likelihood you’ll return for trial
  • Safety of alleged victim/community

If it’s your first offense and there were no serious injuries, you may get released without bail 9.

 But for more serious or repeat allegations, having an experienced criminal defense lawyer argue for affordable or no bail is critical.

Paying Bail

If bail is set beyond what you can pay, you’ll remain jailed until your case finishes or you can pay. Judges rarely lower set bail amounts later on 9.

 Options for making bail include:
  • Post the full amount yourself – Either using your own funds or borrowing money from banks, family, etc.
  • Use a bail bondsman – They pay the court the full bail amount for a 10% non-refundable fee 8.
  • Bail funds – Some non-profits like The Liberty Fund or Bail Project may be able to pay bail for those facing non-violent charges 3.

If you can’t afford bail, a skilled Queens domestic violence lawyer can argue for less restrictive release conditions instead of money bail at your arraignment and subsequent hearings.

Facing domestic violence allegations can impact your freedom, family, finances, and reputation. Having an experienced criminal defense attorney guide you through the process can make all the difference. They understand how to build an effective defense strategy while advocating for your rights and freedom at every stage.For more information or help finding a top domestic violence lawyer in Queens, check out the following attorney directories:
