Georgia Writ of Attachment Bond
AmeriPro Surety Bonds | 844-589-9732
Surety Bond; Amount and Purpose
A Georgia writ of attachment is a court order issued in a civil litigation proceeding. By means of it, as Plaintiff you (or for legal counsel, your client) are allowed to seize and take possession of the disputed and defined asset(s) of the Defendant.
The overriding feature of the writ of attachment order is that it is allowed, pre-judgment; that is, prior to the final disposition of your case.
As a prerequisite of the attachment order taking effect, the Georgia court requires you to obtain a writ of attachment bond. According to Georgia law, the amount of the attachment surety bond will be twice the value of the property claimed in your affidavit or motion to the court.
While required of the Plaintiff, the attachment bond is for the potential benefit of the Defendant in case the court subsequently determines that the attachment order was wrongly issued.
In such a determination (if applicable) the adverse party would be guaranteed the return of the property or its financial equivalent, plus any damages for the loss and harm caused by a wrongly (and subsequently determined) issued attachment order.
Qualifying and the Premium
We as an agency provide the Georgia writ of attachment bond up to a $100,000 surety bond requirement without a prior credit check.
An attachment surety bond application greater than $100,000 is also subject to further review of your application by a surety bond underwriter.
This further review, among other items, will include a credit check inquiry. Good credit will be required for approval. You may also be asked to provide supporting information or documentation.
For any Georgia attachment bond request, our agency will need the following from you:
- A copy of the Georgia court order —or, in lieu of a court order, a letter from legal counsel stating that a writ of attachment bond is required, including the amount required;
- A completed surety bond application from you, the Plaintiff. We ideally like to send our applications to you via Docusign. This will allow you to complete, sign, and return the application to our agency electronically;
- According in large part of the amount required, a review of your completed surety bond application;
- Upon approval of your application, payment of the first annual premium.
Issuing Your Bond

Of note is that your signature Principal and our signature as Surety must both be on your attachment surety bond for it to be accepted by the Georgia court.
