I'm out on bond and haven't been able to hire an attorney yet, what will happen at court?
Several possibilities exist.
You might be granted more time to secure counsel.
Your bond might be enhanced with additional requirements.
Your bond might be increased in amount.
It's unlikely your bond would simply be revoked. Be prepared to satisfy the court as to why you do not yet have counsel.
You need to take a list of names of lawyers that you contacted, include how much they charge and what their payment plans are. You should also bring your paycheck stub to prove that you have a job. Yes, the judge can have you placed back in custody and revoke your bond for disobeying a court order.
Yes it can be revoked but it could also be doubled as well. Ask for more time to hire counsel.
