For Tribal Bonds, Timing Is Everything
There a few hurdles that oftentimes make the tribal bonds process quite a bit slower than a local bond in Tulsa. Outlined below are a few of those obstacles:
- Bond Setting. First, we have to wait for a bond to be set. Typically, the tribal court will set bonds daily when the courthouse is staffed (Monday – Friday minus holidays). So if someone is arrested on a weekend or holiday, a bond will likely not be set until the next day the court is open.
- Signatures on Bond Paperwork. Hurdle number two is getting the bond signed. Generally, a bond amount is not set by the tribal court until late afternoon, around 3:00pm. Since all appearance bonds must be signed by the defendant before presenting to a court clerk, the defendant and family are often anxiously waiting for a bond amount to be set so that the bail bond paperwork process can begin.
- The Rush to Present the Bond. After the bond has been set and the bail bond paperwork is complete, the agent must make it to the tribal court BEFORE 4:30 while the courthouse is open to present the bond.
When timing isn’t just right, there can be a day or more added to the wait for the defendant and family. Signature Bail agents have learned to anticipate and overcome many of these timing challenges. If you or a loved one needs help with a tribal bond in Tulsa, we want to help.
