If I Bail Out A Friend Or Family Member, How Can I Protect Myself If I Find Out He Or She Isn’t Going To Show Up For Court?

In case you are a co-signer for a bail bond of your friend or family member and you are worried that the defendant is not going to appear before the court at scheduled time and dates, you are legally authorized to have that person arrested back by the bail company at any point of time. You might be charged some extra money for this but the amount will be much less than the full bail amount that you will have to pay to the bail agent in case the defendant doesn’t show up in court hearings and the bond is forfeited by the court.
