Jumping Bail in Georgia
When posting bond you need to understand what it is and avoid problems. Posting bail is not the same as paying a fine. Posting bail is your way of promising the court that you will return to address the arrest charges.
Failure to Appear (FTA) in court results in bail bond forfeiture. This means that the court keeps the bail bond money we put up on your behalf. In this case you are responsible for paying the entire amount to us. Additionaly, a judge will issue an arrest warrant for the accused to be arrested on new charges. Make absolutely certain that the person arrested shows up for all court dates!
