Bond money posted on cases may be used to pay costs, attorney’s fees, fines, or other purposes as authorized by the Court on the case on which the money is posted, or any other case, at the Court’s discretion.  Also, pursuant to Administrative Order 09-21, bond money posted may be applied to unrelated existing cases with outstanding fines, costs and fees.  

Unless otherwise ordered by the Court, or cases exist with outstanding balances, bond money will be refunded to the person who posted the bond minus any fees owed to the Court.  

Attorneys seeking portions of Bond must have a completed W9 on file with the Accounting Division for the refund to be generated.

If you are awaiting a bond refund and have not yet received it, please contact our Accounting Division at 847.377.3240 or 847.377.3296.
