You should call a bail bondsman or an attorney. Most attorneys know a bail-bondsman they trust to help their clients and their families get their loved-one out of jail. Most bail bondsmen will accept 10% payment of the total bond amount set by the Court.
First Appearance Court-If your loved one remains in custody for 24 hours, he/she will be taken before a Judge to set bond. A standard bond for a DUI can be as low as $500.00. For lesser offenses, the Judge may release the offender without requiring a bond to be paid.
Yes. A DUI offender is facing up to 180 days in County Jail. Other circumstances, such as multiple DUI’s in an offender’s criminal history, may increase jail penalties.

When you obtain a Florida Driver’s License, you are agreeing to submit to a breath test. Refusal of this test will result in the suspension of your license for 1 year if it is your first refusal of this test. A second refusal is a misdemeanor criminal offense and your license will be suspended for 18 months. Even with a refusal, we can still help you apply for a DMV Hearing within 10 days. If your attorney is successful at the Hearing, you keep your license.
