My mother & I co-signed a bail bond for my grandson- he cut monitor off and has fled. How can we get off of his bond

I very sorry to hear about your problem.
Unfortunately, Jason is correct; you cannot be released from his bond, and any money or collateral you have placed up for his bond will likely be estreated (taken by the State) for your failure to ensure his appearance.
The only way to avoid estreatment at this point is to either get him to appear in court, or to work with a bondsman or law enforcement agency to get him in custody and get him back before the court.
Good luck to you.
Sorry, no. The point of the bond is to insure he appears. If you are on the bond, it was your responsibility to insure he appeared, or lose what you put up. All you can do now is help get him caught and returned. That can get the bond released. He doesn't seem to care about costing you, so you may want to not care about costing him. Tell the police where he is or what number he is at, hire a bounty hunter to catch him, something.
