What is the responsibility of the co-signer if the defendant fails to appear? | Denver Criminal Defense Attorney

The co-signer is responsible to pay the bail bonding agent the amount of the bond and any reasonable bounty hunting cost incurred by the bonding agent.  If the defendant is found, the co-signer is responsible for whatever fees are incurred to apprehend the defendant as agreed to at the time the bond was negotiated. If the defendant cannot be located and the court orders the bonding agent to pay the amount of the bond into the court, the co-signer is responsible for the payment of such money to satisfy the court.
