A: Your bond could be revoked if you personally don't show up to court . It is smart to have an attorney , especially in a circuit court case, but if you don't have an attorney you wont get your bond revoked.

A: Sometimes the DA will move to revoke or increase your Bond, whether you have an attorney or not. Also sometimes a defendant has been given many chances to retain an attorney, and failing so, the Court sets it for Trial or even tries that day.
