The couple skipped previous court hearings without explanation after being accused of using an invalid credit card to defraud San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito of more than $10,000.
Their attorney Robert Sanger did not immediately return a call seeking comment. He has said the Quaids repaid the ranch and hoped to resolve the case.
It appeared the Quaids had forfeited a total of $40,000 in bail when they failed to appear for a hearing last week.
But a judge allowed that money to stand as bail Tuesday and freed the two defendants, prosecutor Lee Carter said.
They were taken into custody in Texas over the weekend after a previous arrest there on Sept. 24.
Randy Quaid is best-known for supporting roles in films such as "Independence Day" and "National Lampoon's Vacation." He is the older brother of actor Dennis Quaid.
Another hearing was set for March 1.
