Types of Court Bonds

The coverage of the obligation can vary widely – from payment of damages to regaining a seized property.

Below are the types of Judicial Bonds:

Appeal Bond

A required bond for the appellant/claimant by the Federal Rules of  Appellate Procedure as an assurance that the appellee’s court costs will be paid in case the appeal was lost.

  • Notice of appeal filing fee
  • Preparation of record
  • Supersedeas bond premium

For defendants, this surety bond enables the person to be released from jail by ensuring that the individual will appear for his or her court date. If the individual fails to appear in court, the bond amount is forfeited to the court.

Replevin Bond

By using a Replevin Bond, the defendant can be assured that if they win the case, they will receive their assets in good condition.

Supersedeas Bond

A bond that will secure the appellee/respondent from any loss due to a stay of execution or a delay by suspending the winning party’s collection until after an appeal is over.
