Civil bonds are surety bonds that are required in civil court. This page outlines civil bond types that are frequently requested for these civil court cases.
A Temporary Restraining Order Bond restrains the defendant from performing a specific act that is thought to cause harm to the plaintiff. These bonds are issued for a short period of time—usually no longer than 30-90 days.
A Preliminary Injunction Bond is needed when a current Temporary Restraining Order bond has exceeded its time limit, and the courts have approved the action to become permanent.
Probate/Estate Bonds are needed when a person is handling the estate or affairs of another—usually those of the deceased or a minor.
A Writ of Attachment Bond grants the Principal (the bond holder) the right to have the bank hold assets or cash that belong to the Obligee/Defendant until the dispute has been resolved through the court process.
A Release Writ of Attachment Bond can be obtained to release the original Writ of Attachment.
A Writ of Possession bond allows the Principal (the bond holder) to have access to or possession of property until the dispute is resolved through the court process.
A Release Writ of Possession Bond can be obtained to release the original Writ of Possession.
A Stop Notice Bond allows the Principal (the bond holder) to place a lien against undisbursed construction funds which are in the possession of a bank or lender. To get this bond, you must submit a copy of the stop notice and mechanics lien, if filed. The bond amount is 1.25 times the stop notice.
