estreatment hearing

If someone claims you did not comply with a court order, the court can schedule an estreatment hearing. For example, this can happen if someone claims you did not follow a recognizance of bail. At the estreatment hearing, you or your surety will be ordered to pay the amount promised to the court when the recognizance of bail was signed.

You and your surety will be given at least 10 days' notice of when and where the hearing will be held.
