Posted a bail of $5000 cash (no bondsman) in NJ to get a family member out on bail for outstsnding dmv warrants but he missed the first court appearance few days later. the courts sent all his notices to his old address which he was not aware of and so he failed to appear in court. but he appealed to the judge later and explained to them that he wasn't properly notified but they still forfeited all my bond money. we need to hire a lawyer but need to know how the forfeited money can be recovered. the address situation is corrected and he will go to court every time until the matter is resolved.
