Q: Once you're put on probation do you have to notify your bail bondsmen that you were put on probation?
I wasn't told if they already know but I still call them to check in and they act like they don't know. N I get put on hold everytime I tell them its me and they put me down as checked in.
A: The appearance bond guarantees your being at Court or jail on certain dates. You can tell the bondsman what the Court ordered but what counts is showing up at Court when the Docket says you are supposed to. A bondsman could require you to report your case's status, but it would be unusual.
