Do you live in California, but are trying to bail a loved one out of jail in another state? If so, you might be running into a bit of trouble finding a bail agent who can help you.

The problem is, that bail agents need a license to bail people out of jail, and that license is issued by the state. This is due to the fact that bail laws vary from state to state, which means bail agents cannot bail people out of jail unless they are licensed to do so in that state. A number of bail agents are only ever licensed to do bail in their own state, so probably will not have much luck with finding a local bail agent who can help you.

If you need to bail a friend or family member out of jail in another state, try looking for a bail agent who is local to the area where your loved one was arrested. He or she should be able to help you secure the release of your friend or family member from jail.
