Alamo Surety Bonds

Supersedeas (Appeal) Bonds

When a judgment has been rendered in a civil court case, the appealing party can be required to provide a supersedeas (appeal) bond. A supersedeas bond protects the prevailing party. In the event the appeal is unsuccessful, the bond guarantees that the prevailing party is paid the judgment plus the associated court costs. If the appealing party fails to pay the final judgment, the surety must pay.

Supersedeas bonds are generally considered to be a very high risk category of surety bonds. As a result, many sureties are not willing to offer these bonds. The few surety markets who are willing to entertain this risk will require the bond to be secured with collateral in most cases. 

We have developed a fast, streamlined program for Supersedeas Bonds - whether or not collateral is required.
