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.

Civil Cases:  If you are seeking to suspend or stay a municipal or justice court order, you must file a supersedeas bond in the amount ordered by the court and the costs to the court clerk.  This is important for those who wish to avoid salary garnishment.

Eviction:  If you are seeking to suspend or stay an eviction judgment and remain in your rental space, you must file a supersedeas bond in the amount owed from the date of judgment until the next rent due date, court costs, and attorney fees (if applicable).  Your rent has to continue to be paid to the court on or before the day it is due each month - there is NO grace period.  If a payment is missed, you can be removed from the property during the appeal.
