Bond Forfeiture Program - Assistance Needed!
This may be more appropriately posted in the Civil forum, but we'll see if we can get some help here first...

We're looking for a little assistance in helping to get a bond forfeiture program started. We do have a number of forms, but I have some concerns about their validity (judgment nisis, bailiff's affidavit, etc.).

Would any of you from counties with established forfeiture programs mind helping out a smaller county by providing us with some of the basic forms/templates needed for the implementation of such a program? And if you wouldn't mind answering some questions or helping with a little consultation via email or telephone, that would be most appreciated as well.

Thanks so much for your help!

Not sure how to post a link to our program. We are in the process of writing up our procedure because we are hiring a new legal assistant. Maybe I could post that when we get it complete. I'll try to speed that along.

Would it be possible for anyone to send a good template to me of a scire facias? I was recently put into the bail bond position, so I'm trying to get all my ducks in a row before proceeding. Thanks.
