Why do I need this bond?

By posting a process server bond in Florida, applicants guarantee that they will not have a personal interest in any case in which they are professionally involved and agree to abide by all rules, laws, and regulations stated in the Florida Statutes.

If a valid claim is made against the bond, the surety will cover all damages up to the full bond amount, but the principal (process server) is expected to pay back all claim money disbursed by the surety.

What’s the fine print?

Process server bonds in Florida remain valid for one year from the effective date. Each judicial court sets its own surety bond requirements, so applicants should verify the unique cancellation terms and obtain the court’s surety bond form prior to bonding.

If the court determines that a process server is unfit for court duty, the court can remove the server from the list of certified processors.
