The indemnitor is financially liable for the bail bond. The indemnitor’s liability is limited to the full face value of the bail bond and any expenses that is accrued if forfeiture occurs. Note: It is very important the indemnitor feels confident the defendant will appear in all of his/her court appearances or posting a bail bond is not recommended. It is recommended that the co-signer maintain a very close relationship with the defendant and keeping an open line of communication.
