What To Do While Out On Bail

Being released on bail allows you to attend to your fiscal responsibilities up to your trial and can help you avoid losing employment or housing from jail. You are not home-free once you post bail, though, and if you don’t follow the rules laid out by the court, you could forfeit the collateral backing your bail bond. So follow our tips on what to do while out on bail, and you can avoid further legal trouble.

Steps to Take While Out on Bail

Make all your court appearances. If you don’t attend one of your court appointments, law enforcement will assume that you are trying to escape and will attempt to recapture you. You will also forfeit the collateral that is guaranteeing your bail bond. You can easily avoid this by attending all your court appearances until the case is decided.

Notify your bail bondsman if your address or phone number changes. Our team must always be able to get a hold of you so that we may alert you if the court changes a court date or a similar event occurs.

Call your bail company if you have questions. If you can’t remember your next court date or have questions about your case, don’t hesitate to call us. If you miss a court date, contact your bail company as soon as possible otherwise, the court may issue a warrant for your arrest.

Keep in touch with your bail company. If your bail company requests that you check in regularly, either in person or by phone, follow their schedule. If you miss a check-in, call your bail company when you realize you missed a registration.

Beyond these primary obligations, make sure that you stay away from situations that could cause you further legal trouble. Obey all laws, and avoid any of the people arrested alongside you. It is probably best to stay away from them if there’s a possibility that you’ll get into trouble with them again. Use your time out of jail to prepare your defense so that you are as ready as possible when your trial comes.
