Nationwide Insurance court bonds

If you're involved in a court case as a plaintiff, defendant or fiduciary, you may need a court bond. Court bonds - also known as judicial bonds or court surety bonds - are often required in court proceedings to protect from possible loss resulting from the court case's outcome. At Allied, we're committed to providing quality court surety bonding services to meet your needs.

Common court bonds

Allied offers a range of court bonds including:

Cost bonds

Cost bonds guarantee the payment of costs associated with appealing a lower court's decision. 

Indemnity to sheriff bonds

Indemnity to sheriff bonds protect the sheriff or marshal from being sued by the party whose property is being seized.

Plaintiff's bonds

Plaintiff’s bonds guarantee payment of damages suffered if an action is decided in favor of a defendant. Plaintiff's bonds include attachment court surety bonds and replevin bonds. 

Attachment bonds

Attachment bonds are required before the court can seize a person's property to secure a judgment and guarantee that if the court decides against the plaintiff, the defendant will be paid any damages arising from the attachment.

Replevin bonds

Replevin bonds guarantee that seized property will remain in the same condition and will not be sold or otherwise disposed of.

Other types of court surety bonds

Probate bonds, also known as fiduciary bonds, are required by the court of a fiduciary to protect any interested parties from loss resulting from any failure of the fiduciary to faithfully perform the duties and obligations required of them by law. Our most common probate court surety bonds are:

Administrator bonds

Administrator bonds are a form of court bonds required to protect the administration of a decedent's estate when the decedent has died without leaving a will.

Executor bonds

Executor bonds are court surety bonds required to protect an estate against fraudulent activities of a fiduciary named by the decedent to administer the decedent's estate.

Conservator bonds

Conservator bonds guarantee that a conservator will be responsible for the assets and finances of a minor or incompetent who is deemed fully or partially incapable of properly handling his or her own finances. 

Guardianship bonds

Guardianship bonds guarantee that a guardian will faithfully and diligently administer a ward's welfare, preserving the rights and assets of the minor or incapacitated person.
