    Court bonds aren’t needed as often as the bonds mentioned above, but can be required by the courts if you need to appeal a court decision, become a legal guardian of a minor or operate as a fiduciary of an estate.

    What Do Louisiana Surety Bonds Cost?

    Surety bonds generally cost 1-15% of the required bond amount.
