Not from the bondsman. His job was done when you hit the streets.

Depends on whether you paid it to a bondsman or the court. If the court then you should get the money back.

If you paid a bail bondsman, you will not get any back as that is how they make their money. If you bonded out through the court then that will be applied towards your fines and costs. If any is left over you would get that back, but that is not likely.

    Depending on what you mean by "bail money". If you posted the entire bail yourself, you should receive this money back once your case is over. However, if you posted bail through a bail bondsman, the money you paid to the bondsman is the premium on your bail and is not refundable.

    Depends upon how you posted the bail. If through a bondsman, no. If through the court, you may be entitled to portion or all the bond. You need to check with your specific court.
