Missouri Injunction Bond
AmeriPro Surety Bonds | 844-589-9732
Surety Bond; Purpose
A preliminary injunction takes place in a civil court proceeding when the Court orders a Defendant(s) to cease and desist from a certain activity believed to be causing harm to a Plaintiff.
A prerequisite for issuance of preliminary injunction is that the Plaintiff obtains a surety bond in an amount that the Court judges sufficient to cover the injunction (Missouri Supreme Court Rules 92.02 (d)).
More colloquially, when an injunction surety bond is ordered of a Plaintiff in a civil proceeding, the purpose of the surety requirement is to protect the Defendant(s) in the civil litigation, should the Court subsequently determine that no injunction should have been issued.
In such a determination, the surety bond would be used to recompense the Defendant(s) for the financial harm or loss which occurred as a result of the injunction..
An injunction surety bond is therefore required of a Plaintiff, by order of the presiding Court, in favor of the Defendant(s) in a civil litigation matter.
Qualifying and the Premium
Our agency offers you the injunction surety bond in any amount that the Court orders from you (or, for legal counsel, your client).
Up to a $25,000 surety bond requirement, we also provide a preliminary injunction surety bond without an underwriter review or credit check. What this means for you (or your client) is that our agency approved you immediately.
Amounts greater than $25,000 will have both a review by an underwriter, along with a credit check inquiry. Approval for these greater amounts is predicated upon review by an underwriter, along with evidence of good credit.
Regardless of the amount of your Missouri preliminary injunction surety bond, our agency will need all of the following from you:
- The Court order which mandates the injunction bond requirement;
- A completed surety bond application. The application is relatively short, and we’ll go over it with you by phone; however, you will need to have your application signed and “witnessed”, although a notary is not required;
- Review by an underwriter and approval for an injunction greater than $25,000;
- Full payment of at least the first annual premium.
After approval of your surety bond and payment of the premium, our agency issues your bond and a Power of Attorney form.
We’ll sign your bond as Surety, mailing the documents to you to sign as Principal.
You will then file all completed documents to the presiding court.
Annual Renewal of the Premium
The premium for your Missouri injunction bond renews annually for as long as the Court requires surety; it is not a onetime payment.
As a general rule, we would ask you to prepare to pay your premium at least twice: Once when first issued; and then a year later upon the renewal anniversary.
