FAQ: What are my responsibilities as a bail bond cosigner?
Your foremost responsibility is to be make sure the defendant returns to court for all scheduled appearances. If, by chance, the defendant misses court, contact your bondsman immediately so that a new court date can be arranged.
Additionally, when you sign a bail bond contract, you are agreeing to pay the bail bond fee.
As the cosigner of a Contra Costa bail bond, you must also ensure that the bondsman is kept current on your and the defendant’s information, such as address, phone number and employment information.
