Preparing Your Family for the Worst

Planning Ahead Can Help to Deal with Being Without a Loved One.

There is a saying,“Proper planning prevents a poor performance.”  This can be applied to any aspect of life, especially when there are tough times ahead.  Here is a brief guide as to how you can prepare you and your family for your possible absence.

  • Happy_Family_PhotoMake sure to complete a detailed Power of Attorney.  If you or your loved one happens to be sentenced to jail or prison, access to banking accounts and finances will be limited at best.  Leaving a responsible and prudent person in charge of finances in the absence of you or your loved one will help you to make sure the bills are paid on time.
  • Be transparent with your bank and lenders.  Losing a member of the family that provides financial support to the family can be daunting.  The best you can do is contact your financial institution and let them know about your situation and see how they can work with you.
  • Make sure that your physician knows about any medical issues.  Getting a thorough physical examination with a trusted family physician can help one to be better prepared to possibly receive proper medical attention when serving their sentence.  Whether it may be something simple such as an allergy or a heart condition, it is important for you to know ahead of time.
  • Enjoy the time you do have.  Preparing as best as you can before trial can help you to best enjoy the time you do have with your family.  After all, if convicted, that time may have to last.
  • Make sure to engage your bail bondsman.  Part of what you pay for in a professional and certified bail bondsman, is great service.  Make sure to engage with your bondsman to ensure that every detail of the contract is understood and ask any questions you may have.  Ammediate Bail Bonds takes pride in the service that we provide and want to make the bail process as quick and painless as possible.
