What Happens When You Violate Your Bail?

When you get arrested, one of the things that can happen is that you appear in front of a judge for bail. The judge is going to either going to give you bail, let you be released on your own recognizance, or keep you in custody. If you they give you bail, it may be for a dollar amount that is greater than what you can afford. If that is true, then you can contact a bail bond agency and get them to help you with your bail. 

Getting a Bond

When you are getting your bond, what happens is that you go to bond agent, tell them how much your bail is, and then they will tell you what you need in order for them to write your bond and pay your bail. In general, you are going to have to put some collateral as a deposit. That collateral can be forfeit if you violate your bail or fail to appear in court at the appointed time. Depending on how much your bail is and your own personal financial situation, you may be asked to have someone cosign your bail and offer up their house or car or some other collateral to ensure that you appear. And while most people have no problems with the terms of their bail and appearing at the appointed time, there are some people who violate their bail, either accidentally or on purpose. If you do violate your bail, for whatever reason, there are things that are going to happen. 

Initial Contact

If you have violated your bail, the first thing that is going to happen that your bond agent is going to be told. Then they are going to try to contact you to see what is going on and try to get you to either come in to their office or turn yourself in. They will also contact whoever may have cosigned your bail bond so that they may talk to you about doing what you need to do in order to deal with the violation. 

Recovery Agent

If they haven't been able to talk to you, or you won't go do what you need to do, or you are off their radar, the bond agent may talk to a recovery agent who will find you and take you into the police department to secure you in jail until you can be seen by the court again. 

If you have been arrested, you may be able to get out on bail. Contact a TRO Violations Bail Bonds service for more help.

About Me

crash coarse on fast-cash loans

I went to the dentist for a toothache that was unbearable. Having dental insurance, I wasn't worried about what the visit was going to cost me, but quickly learned that my dental insurance doesn't cover several procedures one-hundred percent. I was looking at an out of pocket cost of just over a thousand dollars. I didn't have that kind of money and had to hurry to try to find it. I went home and jumped online to do a crash coarse on obtaining a personal loan quickly. It took me longer to learn what I needed to know to take out a fast-cash loan, so I decided to put together a website that could help others find the information that took me hours to find.
