How Much Do Child Custody Bonds Cost?

How Do Child Custody Bonds Work? 

A court may require this bond if there is a risk to a child’s safety or potential for a violation of visitation rights. For example, a parent with a history of custody violations may need to file a surety bond if they wish to take their child on a trip. 

As with all other surety bonds, there are three parties involved: 

  • Principal: Parent purchasing the bond
  • Surety: Surety company issuing the bond
  • Obligee: Parent requesting court protection via surety bond
