You do not always have to post bond in Florida divorce and child custody cases. Find out more about stays pending appeal here.
Do I always need to post bond in an appeal of a divorce or custody order and how much of a bond do I need to post?
No. In Florida divorce and child custody cases, the stay during the appeal may be conditioned upon posting of a good and sufficient bond, other conditions, or both. This means that it is not mandatory to require a party to post a bond. That said, there is case law stating that in certain circumstances, it is error for the trial court to not require a bond, which is more common when the primary issue of the appeal is the payment of money.
