A Wisconsin appeal bond is an instrument available to appellants that wish to delay execution (collection) on a civil judgment during the pendency of an appeal. This judicial mechanism is contemplated under state statute, Chapter 808 Appeals and Writs of Error. Section .07 addresses the availability of a stay of execution or enforcement, to wit:
A surety must file with the Wisconsin appeal bond an affidavit that the surety has a net worth which exceeds the amount of the undertaking, except as provided in s. 632.17 (2). The respondent may by motion object to the sufficiency of a surety within 14 days after service of a copy of the undertaking. Generally corporate surety companies that have been granted a certificate of authority in the state are exempt from the net worth affidavit.
