My sister was arrested six months ago and when she was in jail, she asked if I’d cosign for her San Mateo bail bonds. She worked out something with the bail bonds company where she was able to give them $1,000 when she got out of jail, and she promised to make payments on what was owed ($2,000.) She lost her job and she hasn’t been able to make the payments and now, the company is saying that I need to take them over. Do I need to pay? This bail bonds stuff was her deal, not mine. I just wanted to cosign so she could get out.
We get this question more than you might think. When you cosign for bail bonds in San Mateo you’re not only guaranteeing that the defendant will go to court when they are supposed to. You’re also guaranteeing payment of the bail bonds fees. If you cosigned for your sister on a car loan, and she stopped making payments, you’d need to start paying on the car loan. The same is true for bail bonds payment plans. If you don’t agree to make the payments the bondsman could sue you in small claims court to get a court order, which would force you to pay.
