What exactly does "Forfeited" a bond mean whom does this? Judge or Bondsman? Aren't the bondsman supposed to help inform you of upcoming court dates? And when told and in touch with bondsman correct address he repeatedly sends mail to wrong address? Thanks

The judge orders the bond forfeited.  Then the bondsman tries to have the bond reinstated by hauling you up before the court.  Interestingly, a bondsman, and his agents, is not usually bound by the constitutional restraints that may apply to the police.  Don't mess with a bondsman.

 

It is not the responsibility of the bondsman to inform you of your court dates.

I have no idea what you are trying to say.  Please proof read before posting and try to use a little punctuation.  Your posts are very hard to interpret.

Why is it tgat noone is to "jack" with the bondsman? I mean what if you feel there was some error and its not being exclamated correctly? Like why my mail was send to wrong address after the bondsman was told and the client missed court date.

The bondsman, sometimes called a bounty hunter,  is authorized to use reasonable force to arrest and bring the defendant to court.  In Arkansas:

 

"§ 16-84-114 - Surrender of defendant.

.b) (1) For the purpose of surrendering the defendant, the surety may obtain from the officer having in his or her custody the bail bond or recognizance a certified copy thereof, and thereupon at any place in the state may arrest the defendant."

 

if the defendant believes there is an error, he or she should take that up with the judge after he or she is returned to the court.

The court may order a bail bond forfeited if the defendant fails to appear at a scheduled court date.

No.  It's your and your lawyer's job to know when your court dates are scheduled.  Bondsmen almost never know when court dates are scheduled.

Despite your use of a question mark, this sentence does not appear to be a question and is barely coherent.

One more time in English, please.

Bondsmen and bounty hunters are not the same thing.  In the bail bond industry, the term bondsman is typically used to refer to the local agent who, pursuant to a direct or indirect contract with a surety company, sells bail bonds to criminal defendants.  While some bondsmen handle recovery themselves, most contract with bail recovery agents (i.e., bounty hunters) to handle fugitive recovery.
