Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I would like to assist you with your question today.
I am sorry to hear about your wife's situation. It is unfortunate that when people are arrested late Friday or early Saturday morning that they have to wait until Monday morning to have their bond determined or reviewed by the court.
What I suggest that you do is that you contact an experienced criminal
defense attorney in your area and ask them how the specific court in which your wife's charges have been filed are handles the setting of bonds. In many circumstances the courts have procedures in place where they will review cases over the phone. In situations where a party is not represented the information regarding a defendant is provided by law enforcement and a pre-trial
service type agency. It is very one sided. Under such procedure many people receive no bond or a high bond. Defenses lawyers typically will know how the system works and in many cases can have information regarding a client presented to judge to have a bond set.
Also the lawyer will be permitted to go and speak to your wife and explain to her what the process is and then tell her (and you) what information or documents you will need to have for court on Monday, if they are not able to get an acceptable bond set prior to then.
I hope that I have answered your question. Please let me know if you have more questions or need more information.
