Here at Southern Bail Bonds Dallas, we are often asked what happens to bail bonds when a case is over.
Here’s a quick explanation: The whole purpose of Dallas Bail Bonds is to ensure that the defendant returns to court for all scheduled court appearances, and stays in compliance with the conditions of their release while awaiting trial and a final disposition of their case.
When the defendant’s case has concluded, bail is no longer required. As long as the case has concluded, the court will release the bond – regardless of whether the defendant is found guilty or not guilty.
In turn, this releases anyone who co-signed on the bond from any further responsibility related to the defendant making court appearances. The Dallas County Bail Bonds agent is also released from any obligation to the court.
