Use a lawyer.
Yes you could go into custody and or bail can be increased..
Let your lawyer pave the way.
Yes, since the Court issued a Bench Warrant and forfeited the bail, you can be taken back into custody and have to post a new bail. However, if it is within 180 days of the Forfeiture, the Court may assess some costs, but will usually reinstate the bail; especially if you are walking in with re-assumption papers.
You should coordinate with your attorney so they can be there with you to keep you out of custody!
Don't wait; the longer the warrant is outstanding the more likely you are to be taken into custody.
