Court rules, statutes, court orders or other authorities may require persons in a court case to post money with the Clerk's Office until issues within that case are resolved. Depending on the type of issue, the complexity of the case, and other factors, years can pass between the bond posting date and resolution of related issues. During that time, parties, attorneys, and courts may overlook the issuance of a court order releasing the money. The Clerk's Office will continue to hold the funds until a court order directs the Clerk specifically what to do with those funds.

Before January 1, 2015, when a party to a non-criminal case wanted to appeal a Superior Court finding, former Civil Appellate Rule 10(a) required filing a $500 cost bond with the Clerk. That cost bond may still be ordered by a court but is no longer required.
