Surety Lawyers in Southern Ontario
In order to obtain bail in Ontario, a family member or friend of the person in police custody must be willing to put up property or money to get him or her out of jail. Someone must also agree to act as “surety” for the arrested person. The surety will be responsible to make sure that the accused person fulfills the terms of the bail, including reporting and abiding by curfew, attending court hearings, restraining orders and other terms.
You probably will have questions if someone you care about has been arrested or if you have been asked to act as a surety. At Paquette Wilhelm Criminal Lawyers, we will provide you with close attention, answer your questions, and help you understand the complete legal process.
