A “consent of surety” is a written document that you get from your bail bonding agent. Bail bonding agents are not required to give you a consent of surety. (If you cannot get a consent of surety, you may be required to post a new bond.) You may need a consent of surety for:
Bond Reinstatement. If you have failed to appear in court when required, the bond may be void unless you obtain a consent.
Bond Continuance. If you are convicted, plead guilty, nolo contendere, or there is an order of deferred prosecution or deferred judgment, your bond will automatically expire unless you obtain a consent of surety for the appearance bond to continue until your sentencing date.
Permission to leave Colorado. Along with the court’s consent, a consent of surety is required for you to leave Colorado
while released on bond.
