What to do if a loved one is arrested

It can be a scary and uncertain situation when someone you love is arrested.

We all want to do everything we can to help the people we care about. Here are some things you can do:

Offer Support

Your loved one needs someone to rely on. Offer your emotional support and help them not lose hope.

The Best Legal Representation

Do some research and help them find someone who is reliable and experienced in cases like theirs.

Their Rights

Remind them that anything they say can be used against them and they shouldn't speak to the police without an attorney.


There are a lot of things to consider if your loved one has asked you to pay their bail.  Don't agree without serious thought and research.


If your loved one wasn't offered bail or if you chose not to pay, you can still help them financially by giving them money for necessities while in jail.


If your loved one will be in jail for a while, see if they have things like pets or other responsibilities that you can help them with.

Be Reasonable

This is a hard situation. Don't make it harder by putting unnecessary strain on yourself.
