Also named withdrawal of bail bond, the surrender of a bond is an action taken by the bail agent to return a defendant back into custody for violation of terms and conditions of bail agreement. A violation can occur if a defendant fails to appear at court, fails to check in regularly, or poses a threat to the community or commits crime while out of jail on the bond.
Rearrests and surrender of a bail client can often be avoided by contacting the bail agent as soon as a situation arises. Open communication is key and we are always here to help, don’t be afraid to reach out for help. There are things we can do and work together on to avoid a costly surrender of the defendant.
