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.
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.
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.
At our company we always take time explaining our clients what happens if the defendant violates a condition of their bail.
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.
If you have any question regarding co-signing the bond or a bond forfeiture, call us at any time at 702-388-8383.
