What is a Stay Bond?

A Stay Bond is similar to an injunction given that the principal is filing the bond to stop another party from doing something. The difference is that a defendant will file for a stay to keep the plaintiff from collecting on a judgment. The Stay Bond is required to guarantee that if the pending appeal is lost that the defendant will cover all costs and fees.

Bond Premiums and Bond Amounts:

Defendants bonds require full collateral in the amount of the bond. We only accept Cashier’s Check or Irrevocable Letter of Credit. Exceptions can be made for large publiclytraded corporations or Insurance companies. If the Stay Bond is being used as an injunction the collateral requirement may be waived.

1% per annum OR $250 minimum. These bonds are normally fully collateralized. Exceptions can be made for large, publicly-traded companies or other large, financially secure organizations. Rate credits may also be available for large, publicly-traded principals.

The bond amount will be set by the court or statute based on the judgment amount.

Does a Stay Bond mean I do not have to pay the judgment?

The court will rule as to whether the judgment is upheld. A Stay Bond works as a surety bond for the court saying the defendant will cover the cost and interest of the judgment should the defendant lose. States require this bond to ensure the defendant will pay the judgment or release the property without a financial loss to the plaintiff.
