Your Case at Fontana District Superior Courthouse
Before we post bail for you, it is important that you understand how bail bonds work. Thanks to movies and television, there are a lot of misconceptions regarding bail bonds. So, let us clear some of these up.
It is common for people to think that paying bail is like paying a ticket; you head to the courthouse, pay, and then walk away, never needing to think about it again. But this is not how bail works. Yes, you can pay it at the courthouse, but once you have done so, you still need to show up at any and all court dates related to your case.
Failure to appear results in the loss of bail and a warrant being issued for your arrest. If you used a bail bondsman, the bondsman will collect on their loss. Additionally, if arrested on that warrant, you can be denied bail.
Most of our clients work with us with the full intention of appearing at all future court dates. However, there are still those who don’t make it. This tends to happen not because they just choose not to go, but due to misunderstandings or mistakes. Some common reasons our clients fail to appear are showing up in attire that is not in line with the dress code, failing to consider traffic and find a parking space, and believing they can reschedule their court date. Take caution to avoid these mistakes by dressing correctly, leaving your home early, and understanding that the court sets the dates for you.
As long as you show up at all court appearances, once your case is closed, the money will be returned to the person who paid it. If you used a bail bondsman, you no longer need to worry about it. If you paid on your own, you will need to submit paperwork requesting the return and will wait about six weeks before the funds are released to you. If you need assistance with this paperwork, we can help.
