Imagine the scenario: you've helped someone get out of jail by posting bail, and suddenly, they vanish, missing their first court appearance. This situation puts the bail bond at risk of default, and a warrant is likely issued for the person's arrest.

As the Surety, you're facing the possibility of losing both your money and any assets you offered as collateral for the bail bond, such as cars, houses, or other valuable property.

However, all might not be lost immediately after a no-show in court.

Should the individual miss their initial court date, the court provides a 150 day grace period in North Carolina, allowing some time to rectify the situation before declaring the bail forfeited. This grace period, however, might not apply if there's a known history of FTA's or is a high-risk.

Within this grace period, if granted by the court, you have the opportunity to bring the defendant back into custody. This can be done by contacting 828 Bail Bonds and we will escort them to the nearest police station, completing the required documentation, and informing the court that the defendant is again in custody. If successful, this action can reverse the default status of the bond, allowing the trial to continue without the forfeiture of bail.

Additionally, if law enforcement apprehends the defendant under the issued warrant, you can request that we again post the bond on your behalf, thus protecting your financial interests.

828 Bail Bonds is here to assist you through these challenging times with our expert fugitive recovery and bail enforcement services, ensuring that your financial and emotional burdens are minimized.
