I have had a lot of people calling to ask me about Judicial Release in the past few weeks.
After discussing the initial facts of the case, including if their loved one is eligible to file for judicial release, we usually discuss finances. I have had a lot of people ask if they can use their tax refunds to pay for the judicial release.
The answer is yes.
As I tell people, the process of filing for judicial release can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. As such, there is time to start getting materials together while awaiting your tax refunds.
I have also had people asking about timing: i.e. having their loved ones home before summer.
My recommendation: the sooner you file, the better. By filing the judicial release motion earlier, you allow for extra time in case of unexpected delays, such as problems with court paperwork or judges being unable to review materials due to being in trials in other cases.
