Accidents happen. Events take place that are beyond our control. If you realize you have accidentally missed a court date, the first thing you must do is contact the court. Let them know what happened and ask to have a new date set. You must also call your bail bondsman and explain the situation. Constant contact with your bail bondsman is important if you want to avoid confusion. Checking in through phone calls and office visits is advisable to keep everyone on the same page and up to speed as to what is going on with your case. Repeatedly missing your court dates can eventually cause problems. It is important to attend every court date on time and remain in contact with your bail bondsman at all times.
