How do I get a bond back once I have posted the cash?
When the defendant appears on the date/time noted on the bond, the judge will address the release, retention, or application of bond funds in regards to the defendants case.

When the court date is continued, the judge may continue the bond until the case is resolved.

When the judge releases the bond, the defendant is required to produce a picture identification before the bond will be refunded.

When a defendant posts bond through a bonding company, the "surety" bond company will be released when the case is concluded. NOTE: Any fee paid on behalf of a defendant to the bonding company is between the defendant and the bonding company, not the court.
