Yes, the bondsman will be able to revoke your bond and have the court issue a warrant for any reason such as violating a condition of the release, skipping town or not paying the fees. Once he pulls his bond, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest and you will be held in custody until your case is over.

You are out of jail because he signed a bond promising your appearance. However, he CAN not revoke your bond because you didn't pay because you are still here, available to go to court. He may only rescind the bond is you skip and this is what his bond written to the court states. If you do pay as agreed for his going your bail, the proper way for him to force payment is to sue you for breach of contract and his revoking your bond for non-payment is an improper business practice.

The bondsman cannot ?issue a warrant?. However, he can inform the court that he wants off the bond, although normally to do that he would have to surrender you to the court (to be put in jail) as there would be no more bond if he decided to get off the bond. So he could grab you and take you to the jail or court and ask to be relieved from being on the bond.

A bondsman has already paid the entire bond in order to have you remain out of custody. That remains the case whether the pay off the bondsman or not. And as long as you have been attending your court dates, you will be fine. Only a Judge can issue a warrant.

When an individual is arrested and charged with a criminal offense, the individual may either pay the total cost of the bond to the Sheriff's Department, which is referred to as a "cash bond", or the individual may go thorugh a bonding company and pay a percentage of the total bond amount (typically 10% to 12%). If, for example, the Defendant charged with the offense has a bond of $15,000.00. By going through a bonding company (instead of paying a cash bond), the Defendant would pay approximately $1,800.00 to the bonding company. The bonding company is then on the hook to the court for the full $15,000.00, in the event that the Defendant fails to appear in court as ordered. Accordingly, if the Defendant fails to appear in court as ordered, the judge will issue a biench warrant for the arrest of the Defendant. The bonding company then must either produce the Defendant, or pay $15,000.00 to the court. In order to avoid paying $15,000.00 to the court, the bonding company will look for the Defendant and may employ bounty hunters for that purpose. There is a deadline given by the court to the bonding company to either produce the Defendant or pay up. Thus, the bondsman can and will take the Defendant into custody (if authorized to do so) and deliver him/her to the law enforcement authorities, if they can locate the Defendant. Now, in your specific question, since you have appeared at all of your court appearances, the bonding company could come off of your bond. If the bonding company comes off of your bond, you will need to either pay a cash bond or find another bonding company to post the bond on your behalf.
