What happens if you can't pay your bond?

If you are out of jail waiting for your hearing and break your contract by not paying the agreed upon amount to the bond company, you should contact the bail bonds company, they will usually work with you to adjust the payment scheudle. However if you do not communicate with the bond company about the payment, they will come find you and put you back in jail and the amount you paid to them is forfeit, you will not get it back and then also you will be stuck in jail. The only way you can get out of jail then is to pay the full amount of the bond to the court or find another bond company and re-pay the 10% bond fee over again.
