First you have to answer some basic questions, like what is your full name, street address, date of birth and a contact person, and you will also be asked about your medical and mental history. Next, you’ll be given an inmate number and you will be fingerprinted. Then, all of your personal property will get taken away from you and will be stored until you are released.
You will be allowed to make a phone call so you can talk to a member of your family, friend, or loved one.
If you are expected to be released shortly, you might be allowed to keep wearing street clothes, otherwise you you will have to wear a jumpsuit.
When you finally post bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process will take between 10 minutes to many hours. Or, simply, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get let go. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to decide on the bail amount.

When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a date of your release, you should plan to get released that morning.
