In a previous blog, we discussed some of the things a co-signer will want to consider before signing for our Thibodaux bail bonds for a friend or family member. Co-signers become responsible for getting their loved one back to jail on their appointed court date, otherwise, they may be in danger of losing property, owing thousands of dollars in fines and fees, or even having a lien placed on bank accounts or properties. Agreeing to be a co-signer is no small thing, but most people are very willing to do it in order to get their loved one out of jail. Now let’s talk about some of the options a co-signer will have on a bail bond. These are important options that you should be aware of because they could help protect you as well as your loved one in the future.
But co-signers aren’t without options when it comes to bail bonds. These are important options that you should be aware of because they could help protect you as well as your loved one in the future. These are two of the most important options you should know about as a co-signer:
- You can add conditions to the bail bond. When you work with our bail bondsman to write the bond for your friend or family member, let them know if you’d like to add a condition to the terms of the bond. This can range from anything from getting treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction or undergoing a mental health evaluation. This can help protect you as well as your loved one and help keep them out of trouble in the future.
- You can ask for the bond to be revoked. Once your loved one is out of jail, you’ll need to help Lausen’s Bail Bonds keep an eye on them, update us on their whereabouts, and help make sure they make it to their next court date. If you aren’t comfortable with their behavior, if you think they could be a danger to themselves or others, or if you know they are going to skip out on their bail, you can call our office to have the bail revoked. We’ll pick them up and they’ll go back to jail. We know this can be a difficult decision to make, but sometimes it’s the best one for everyone involved.
When you come in to sign for our Thibodaux bail bonds, you can speak with our experienced bail bond agents about any of these options as well as others that might be beneficial to you.
