Section 17-16-62

Appeals - Costs.

On the taking of an appeal as provided in Section 17-16-61, the appellant must give bond and security for the costs thereof to be approved by the judge of probate or clerk of the circuit court, as the appeal may be taken from the judgment of the judge of probate or circuit court, and the appeal bond must be certified with the record to the appellate court, and if judgment is entered confirming the judgment of the judge of probate or of the circuit court, the Supreme Court must render judgment against the appellant and his or her sureties for the costs. An appeal in any and all cases suspends the execution of the judgment or decree of the judge of probate or of the circuit court.
