Transcripts for Appeals

Prior to filing, check the local rules or ask the court clerk if a transcript is required for your appeal.  If a transcript is required, it is the responsibility of the appellant to order the recordings and CD of the proceedings from the previous court to be delivered to a certified transcriber. Check with the court clerk to see if arrangements for transcripts can be made through the court.

Calculating the Supersedeas Bond

A supersedeas bond is something that is filed with the appellate court for the amount of money owed while the appeal is in process.  They can be calculated in different ways based on the type of the case.

Cost Bond

If you are posting a supersedeas bond, you do not have to post a cost bond.  This is money that is set aside to reimburse the others if you lose your appeal.  If you are unable to pay the cost bond, you can file a waiver to waive or reduce the costs involved.

Cost bonds DO NOT apply to Orders of Protection and Injunctions Against Harassment.
