The Omara law group in the US have contacted us to ask if we can share some of their resources – they have put together an extensive guide to help family members or friends in case a loved one is arrested. This is US focused but the guide includes information about the steps to take after the arrest, what to be aware of if your loved one has mental health issues or disabilities, if they are a minor, and much more. see omaralawgroup.com/what-to-know-if-family-friend-arrested/ for information
