Various types of bonds are authorized to be deposited with the Clerk of the Court in Civil actions under several Florida Statutes, the Florida Rules of Civil and Appellate Procedures, and per Court Order. Typically these bonds can be a cash deposit, or a surety bond issued by an surety company licensed to do business in the State of Florida.
The following chart lists many of the bonds typically filed in civil actions, along with the Clerk’s authorization to accept the bond, how the amount of the bond is determined, fees that may be due upon filing the bond, and other pertinent information. Links to the authorizing statutes or rules are included in the chart.
The Clerk does not maintain a list of surety companies which issue surety bonds and cannot advise which bond would apply under any particular circumstances or situation. You may wish to consult with an attorney for advice and further information.
