What Should You Do If You Miss Court While Out On Bail?

When you use a private bail bond company to facilitate your release from custody, the best thing to do is remember; THEY ARE YOUR FRIEND! The bail bond company makes their money keeping you out of jail, not putting you back in there.

Things happen. People miss court. If you find yourself with a warrant related to the case you posted bail for, or for a different case, the best thing to do is contact your bail bond company to work on a plan. Of course, your bail bond company is most likely not legal counsel, and oftentimes they may refer you to your attorney. Calling your bondsman, however, should be at the top of your list of priorities when you find yourself in a bad situation.

Remember, having a good relationship with a bondsman is important, because nobody ever PLANS on going to jail.

Bail enforcement agents have a greater authority than law enforcement when it comes to warrant investigations relating to those who have posted bail using a surety bail company. Remember, agencies like ours can track you from state-to-state and take you into custody without the restrictions of extradition, warrants, etc.

If you are out on bail, and you’ve missed court, contact our agency. We can direct you to your bondsman, even if you don’t remember who you talked to or what company posted bail on your behalf.
