If you paid a bondsman, that money is gone. The money you paid him was for his services. If you had posted your own bond, you would have gotten that money back. In the future, use the money to hire an attorney. The attorney can get your bond reduced so that you can get out.

If you are out on bail and get arrested the court can revoke your bail or increase it even if the charge is later dismissed. The bail bondsman should not have a problem if the case was dismissed.

The judge can revoke your bond, and/or your bondsman can come off your bond, because you are a bad candidate on bond. Good luck.

    Bail bond company doesn't revoke your bond. The court does. So as long as there were no new charges, the bail will probably not be revoked.

    Sometimes, an arrest can result in the revocation of the bond. I would look to the bond retainer and see what terms were agreed to in the document.

    That would depend on a couple things. First, your bonding contract would govern when and whether your bond can be revoked. Second, it depends on the court. When pending trial, a criminal defendant is required to be on his or her best behavior. Even a dismissed charge can result in a change to your conditions of release including bail amount and bond.

    Yes, for picking up a new charge. A bond company is like an insurance company. Any change in the status quo can result in a change in the bond. You not being arrested is irrelevant, it simply means you're good at evading police.
