One of the most common types of Philadelphia surety bonds is the appeal bond. The Jurisco blog directory contains many entries for appeal bonds due to the high rate of use in almost every state. Philadelphia isn’t unique to appeal bonds, it does, however, come with its own set of criteria and mandates. Securing an appeal bond doesn’t have to be a crisis moment. We’ll cover some guidelines and tips to make the Philadelphia appeal bond process easier.
The reasons for a Philadelphia appeal bond are similar to traditional appeal bonds in the U.S. A defendant seeking an appeal is required to secure an appeal bond. This mandate is done, in part, to protect the plaintiff against unnecessary delay. The appeal bond covers the value of the judgement along with any additional costs tacked on by the judge.
An appeal bond offers benefits for the defendant, as well. Without a surety bond, a judgement must be satisfied immediately. Having to pay out a large sum could hinder the financial ability to seek an appeal. The appeal bond is middle ground for the plaintiff and defendant.
It’s important to pay attention to the Philadelphia appeal bond requirements set forth by either state law, court order, or both. In addition to the value a bond must cover, these requirements include a time table. Failing to comply with the timeline may hinder the ability to appeal and the court’s willingness to hear it.
