Nevada Appeal Bond
While we explain what an appeal bond is and will enable you to obtain one quickly, applicants for a Nevada appeal bond should always consult an experienced appellate attorney for relevant information regarding their particular case.
The upshot of these preliminary remarks is that our specialty is helping you file your appeal bond in a Nevada appeals court; however, please always consult legal counsel for legal advice.
Nevada Appeal Bond:
When a defendant has lost a monetary judgement, and wishes to have the case reviewed by a different court with the intention of overturning the original verdict, in many cases, a Nevada court appeal bond is required to be filed before the case will be heard.
This is also sometimes required before the judgement can be “stayed”.
“Staying” a Judgement:
A defendant who has lost their original monetary case is subject, practically immediately, to having any monies, properties, and other relevant instruments taken to satisfy the judgement.
“Staying a judgement” is the process of preventing the enforcement of a judgement while a case is on appeal.
Filing a Motion For A Stay: It’s Simply Not Enough
In Nevada, some litigants think that by merely filing a “motion” – a formal request from the court to stay a judgement — is of itself sufficient.
It is not. The judgement can still be enforced if one does this and stops there.
Getting a “Stay” for a Nevada Appeal
Obtaining a supersedeas bond – a Latin term for an “appeal bond” is the proper way of “staying” a judgement in Nevada.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds will help you to do exactly that.
Time To Appeal:
The time allowed for a litigant who has lost their court case to file a timely appeal is rather narrow.
Judgments which are being appealed from a justice court typically must have a notice of appeal filed with 20 days after the written entry of judgement.
Judgments which are being appealed from a district court must be filed within 30 days after service of entry of judgement.
Filing the Appeal: Court Costs
Notice to the court of the appeal of judgement in a justice court will require a bond of $250, or payment of $250 in cash.
Notice to the court of appeal of a judgement in a district court will require a bond of $500, or payment of $500, in cash. (AmeriPro Surety Bonds will provide this $500 bond for you should you wish to do so).
Nevada Supersedeas Bond: Nevada Appeal Bond
The staying of a Nevada judgment (discussed above) requires an appeal bond.
The amount of the appeal bond required will be determined by the following:
- The full amount of the judgment, PLUS, all interest and cost. This ensures that if the defendant loses again on appeal, the plaintiff will receive all monies owed, plus interest and costs which have accrued since the time of the original judgement;
- The premium paid to the surety bond for posting the bond. It is important to note that the appeal bond premium renews on an annual basis for the duration of the case.
The amount of the appeal bond required will be determined by the court.
