What is a writ bond?
We are often asked what a writ bond or attorney writ bond is. This frequently happens in Collin County, Texas. Essentially, it is where there is an individual incarcerated without bond being set. In other words, they have not seen a judge or magistrate. An attorney will then file a writ of habeas asking the jail to set bond. In many counties, they have a preset bond amount. In other counties, you will have to wait to have a hearing on the writ. It is best to call a qualified criminal attorney to find out if this is available for your friend or family member.
