What other bail costs might I be responsible for?

Besides the premium, what other bail costs might I be responsible for?

Please note that all of these fees do not pertain to every case. The majority of these fees are only incurred when a defendant skips or the whole premium is not paid.

You, the signer, will be responsible for any recovery fees, attorney fees (if council is ordered to appear in court on behalf of the surety), charges for motions that had to be filed on behalf of the surety and defendant, extradition fees, financing fees, collection company fees, bond forfeitures, etc. If you are concerned that you may be responsible for any of these fees, please just ask and we will be happy to define them more thoroughly so that you may understand them better.
