A Supersedeas bond is a type of defendants bond in Florida. When the defendant appeals the court’s judgment, typically a monetary judgment, they will use a Bond to satisfy their requirement to pay. While lawyers file appeals and set up new hearings, the supersedeas bond stays the judgment and proves to the court that the judgment will be honored without unnecessary delay. Any defendants wishing to appeal a money judgment will be required to post an appeal bond or can post the same amount with the registry of the court. While both parties have a right to appeal, the judgment can only be stayed with an appeal bond. It shows the court the judgment will be paid in full and may even cover court cost and interest.
