Collin County and Dallas County Attorney Writ Bonds
If someone at the jail or bonding desk in Collin County or Dallas County, Texas told you needed to obtain a Writ Bond for a jail release, VICTORIA BARR can help greatly speed this process up. Please call VICTORIA BARR LAW AT 214-799-3961 now for assistance 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
Whenever someone is arrested, regardless of the County, they have to see a magistrate judge where a bond amount is set. This amount usually varies given a variety of factors, such as what the charge is and where the person lives. Sometimes this process can take a prolonged period of time, especially on holidays, nights, and weekends. Once the person does see a magistrate judge, they will notify the accused the nature of the charge and set a bond amount.
A person can hire VICTORIA BARR to file a Writ Bond to speed this process up in Collin County or Dallas County if the circumstances permit. The Writ Bond process can begin once the arrested party is booked in and fingerprinted. Filing the Lawyer Writ Bond can help speed the process up so the person does not have to wait to see a magistrate judge. Sometimes these magistrate judges work very sparingly, depending upon the city and county jail location. A Writ Bond sets a bond amount according to a set county fee schedule and the bond is effectively set. The arrested person can then post that bond amount to facilitate the jail release process.
A Writ Bond can only be used in limited circumstances and only in certain criminal cases. It cannot be used for felony cases, Class C traffic violations, or in assault family violence cases. It can only be used for misdemeanors, such as DWI and theft charges. However, even if a Collin County or Dallas County Writ Bond is not filed, VICTORIA BARR LAW AT 214-799-3961 can still possibly help with the jail release.
There are a couple of steps involved in obtaining a Writ Bond in either Dallas County or Collin County.
1. Please call VICTORIA BARR LAW AT 214-799-3961 so we can help determine whether you or your loved one is eligible;

3. If the person is incarcerated in another jail not in McKinney (Plano, Frisco, and other Collin County jails), then a bond form will have to be signed and witnessed by a jailer at that jail. The bond form will then be taken to McKinney to the bonding desk for processing.
An Attorney Writ Bond can only be filed in Dallas County if the arrested person is NOT in the Lew Sterret jail. A magistrate judge should be working 24 hours a day/7 days a week there. In Dallas County, a Writ Bond can be filed if the person is in jail in Desoto, Irving, Balch Springs, Garland, Mesquite, Addison, Richardson, or Coppell;
4. VICTORIA will file the Attorney Writ Bond;

Posting A Writ Bond in Collin County – What You May Expect
Once a Collin County Attorney Writ Bond is in process, our attorney will get the bond set at The Collin County Sheriff’s Department. Even if your loved one is incarcerated in another Collin County Jail like Plano, Frisco or Allen, the Collin County Attorney Writ Bond is processed through the Sheriff’s Department.
The time it takes to post a writ bond and obtain a release varies depending upon if the person is incarcerated at the Collin County Jail in McKinney or if they are in a smaller, suburban jail like Plano. If the person is already incarcerated in the Collin County Jail, the time it takes to process a writ bond to the release can be as short as an hour or two. While our staff conducts our work in a very efficient and quick manner, we also must rely on other parties like the jail involved in the release. Sometimes the jail is busier and more crowded than other times.
For example, it may take a little bit longer to process a writ bond jail release on a weekend as opposed to a weekday. Prior to releasing an inmate, and after the writ bond has been approved, the Sheriff’s Department at Collin County must do a few things prior to the person being released. Paperwork and releasing of property can delay the release for a short time. It is always our advice to be patient and courteous with jail staff and employees. This is their job and we have always found Collin County jail staff to be very professional and efficient. Being rude or ugly to the jail staff will not result in better services.
If a person is incarcerated in a local, suburban jail like Plano, for instance, you may expect the process to take 2 to 3 hours. The bond must be signed in its original form by the person incarcerated at the local, suburban jail. This means that the bond will have to be carried from the jail where the person is incarcerated to the Collin County Sheriff’s Department for processing. Naturally with travel time, this will add a slight additional period before the release of the inmate on the writ bond.
