The first step in the process is for state law to allow it. If not, they are stuck and will need to get a new bail bond or find someone else who can cosign on their behalf.
Once this has been determined, one must know if the person was granted a full release from jail or just a temporary leave of absence while awaiting trial date – there’s an important difference since only being temporarily released means that you’ve made bail but still have obligations pending which is why your name remains on the document as co-signer.
Once that’s clarified, then continuing with meeting eligibility requirements: unless specified by agreement with the court, all legal fees incurred during plea bargaining (so after arrest) should be paid off before removing them.
