Clients may need to use a bond at the beginning of a court case (pre-judgment) while others are necessary only after a judgment. For example, a defendant wanting to release a lien on property and replace it with a bond uses a transfer of lien bond. A plaintiff wishing to appeal the decision but not pay a money judgment would need a stay (pending appeal) bond.
