When someone is released from custody on bail bonds, on their own recognizance or because they cited out (given a citation that indicates the date and time they are to appear in court), their most important obligation is to go to court when they are supposed to.
When someone misses court because they are sick, they have work or they simply forget, they could find themselves being arrested on a failure to appear warrant.
When someone is arrested for failure to appear, they still have the ability to post bail bonds, but the bondsman will likely require a very strong cosigner (someone who has good credit and/or owns their own home) to sign the bail bonds paperwork.
It is very difficult, if not impossible, for a defendant to post their own bail bonds if they are arrested for this type of offense.
