Co-Signing the Bail Bond in Las Vegas, Nevada

What Any Co-Signer Needs to Know

Co-Signing Bail Bonds in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bond Forfeiture. Bail bond law can be very complex. If you or somebody close to you is in jail and you are planning to co-sign the bond, there are a few important things that you need to know before becoming a bond co-signer.

  • The accused will be released from custody.
  • The co-signer has the authority and duty to make sure the accused appears at all court hearings and meets any other bond requirements.
  • The co-signer can request stipulations before co-signing (e.g., a requirement that the accused attend a drug treatment program or undergo a mental health evaluation.)
  • If the accused flees or refuses to go to court, the co-signer can contact the bail bond company and let them know where the accused is so that he or she can be picked up and returned to jail.

Not everyone can co-sign bail bonds. The person must be a citizen of the United States and have lived in the same area for a predetermined period, have stable employment and have sufficient credit.

Surrendered Back Into Custody

There are situations when an indemnitor (co-signer) for Nevada bail bonds may have a reasonable suspicion that the defender will not make scheduled court appearances. If it happens to you, you have the legal right to have that person surrendered back into custody by the bail company at any time.

There is a small fee associates with taking this action, but paying the fee is certainly better than the alternative - losing your house, your car or a life saving in the event the bond forfeits the court.

First a bench warrant is issued for their arrest. Next, if the charged person isn't found, the bond becomes forfeited. A forfeited bond is the property of the court and it cannot be refunded. As a result, the co-signer is responsible for the full amount of the bond.
