FAQ - Appealing to an Appellate Court

What is a Supersedeas Bond?

A Supersedeas Bond prevents a party from collecting or enforcing a judgment while an appeal is pending. If the Appellant does not post the Supersedeas Bond, the Appellee may enforce the judgment while the appeal is pending. While the motion to set a bond is pending, the Appellee may not seek to collect on the monetary judgment. If the Appellant files a Supersedeas Bond, the Appellee may not collect the money judgment while the appeal is pending. In domestic relations cases, however, a Supersedeas Bond will not prevent enforcement of an order directing payment of money for child support or spousal maintenance and it will not affect an order establishing or changing child custody.
