How Does Bond Surrender From Bondsman Work?

When a defendant has an active bond forfeiture, bond surrender is the bail bondsman withdrawing from someone’s bond. A common practice of the bail bondsman is to go to the person’s home address early in the morning or late at night, when the person is most likely to be home. If the defendant is spotted, the bail bondsman will call the sheriff’s office or policy agency to notify them that this person has an active warrant. Sometimes the bail bondsman also goes to the person’s work place to notify police to come arrest them. After the defendant is taken into custody, the bail bondsman can ask the court to withdraw their liability as their surety.
