Between rent, Internet, phone, water and electricity bills, it is crucial to not forget to make your bail bond payments as well. It is helpful to put payment dates on a calendar and set up reminders or notifications. It is also a good idea to have a friend or two in-the-know so they too can remind you and help you stay on top of this. You will also have a bail agent to keep you in the loop as well. But nonetheless, it’s best you remember when to pay your bail, and how much. This is a practice of your responsibility and maturity through this situation.
Failing to meet your bail bond payment deadlines results in consequences, including any or all of the below:
- Getting re-arrested and bail withdrawn
- Collateral taken
- Remainder of full bail amount will have to be paid
These consequences are serious and can greatly affect others, especially a co-signer and very close loved ones. They may take their trust and support away and you cannot afford that, on top of having to pay the rest of the bail.
