Bail is a monetary agreement you enter into with the court system. You pay bail in exchange for being released from jail. If you make all your court appearances, the court eventually returns the money to you.
When You Cover Your Bail
If you’ve paid the bail yourself and fail to appear in court, you forfeit the money. That doesn’t mean the court forgets about you. They have some options which include:
- Swearing out an arrest warrant.
- Sending officers to your home to get you.
- Suspending your driver’s license.
- Additional charges could be filed against you.
If you have used a bail bond company, things become complicated.
When Working With A Bail Bond Company
If you fail to appear in court, we aren’t just out the 10% of the bail you paid us, but we’re out the entire amount. The only way we can get our money back is by making sure you make it back to court. It’s in our best interest to make this happen as quickly as possible. We do this by sending a respected bail bond agent to find you and transport you to jail.
Failing to appear in court is often hardest on the people who believed in you so much that they co-signed for your bail or even offered up some of their assets as collateral. You owe it to them to make all of your court appearances and not doing anything to jeopardize the terms of your release.
