If you ever have questions about your bail bond, give us a call!

If you’ve recently made bail with the help of a bail bondsman, you likely have many questions. One that we hear fairly often, is, “Can My Bail Bondsman Put Me In Jail If I Miss My Monthly Payments?

Simply put, no. If you are late on your credit card payments, your credit card company cannot put you in jail, and the same applies to your bail bonds. However, if you are more than 30 days past due, they can report you to the credit reporting agencies, which can impact your credit score. If you find yourself in a situation where you are unable to make your monthly payment, your best option is to call and speak with your bondsman. We’re people too, and more often than not, we can find ways to work with you until you get back on your feet.

If you have recently made bail with the help of a bondsman, and you skip out on your court date, that is a different story. In that type of situation, a warrant is put out for your arrest, and you are liable for the full amount of the bail.
