I bailed fiance out who has 3rd degree assault charges. He has hired lawyer who postponed court date and requested jury trial.Charges are between him & his dad from Dec. They since reconciled. I won cruise to Bahamas attorney advised me to ask bondsman if he can get permission to go. Denied in seconds,got his dad contact # for victims advocate from solicitors office to do affadadit if he chooses to do so my bf can hopefully go. Any advise?Thanks In Advance.
If the bondsman will not agree to allow your fiance to leave the jurisdiction then you might have a problem. You have agreed to the terms of that particular agency and if the terms are violated the bond can be pulled. Obviously if you have a consent order from the prosecuting attorney it might help sway the bondsman's mind but it is not definite. You do need legal counsel on this matter.
My answer is general in nature and should not be depended on without more specific information.
In my judgment it is up to the judge, not the bondsman, so go ahead and file a motion for leave to go on the vacation and for a continuance for the court date.
