The length of time a bondsman can look for you varies and depends on the type of bond and the jurisdiction. If you fail to appear for your court date, the bondsman has a reasonable amount of time to locate and surrender you to the court.
If the bondsman cannot locate the defendant, the bond is typically forfeited, and the bondsman may be required to pay the full bail amount to the court. The amount of time a bondsman has to locate a defendant can range from a few days to several months, and in some cases, the bondsman may work with law enforcement to locate the defendant.
You should maintain regular contact with the bondsman and appear for all court dates to avoid being considered a flight risk.
