Bail bonds are financial assurances that a defendant will show up for all of his or her court dates. When the person doesn’t appear in court, the bail bond company, and ultimately the person responsible for making the agreement with the bail bond company in Upper Marlboro , becomes financially liable for the entire bail amount. If you post bail for someone and they skip a court date, the bail bond company may hire a bounty hunter.
Bounty hunters search for people who skip bail and attempt to bring them back to court so that they can face their charges. By using a bounty hunter, the bail bond company may be able to avoid paying the entire bail amount to the court by locating the person who is wanted by the police. If you signed a bail agreement on behalf of someone who skips bail, then a bounty hunter could also help you avoid being held liable for the entire bail amount.
