Hi Barbara,

The answer is possibly. It really just depends on the bond type you need and also the type of conviction. Usually, this is not an issue, but for fidelity bonds or some probate bonds, they will want to know about any previous convictions. If the conviction is for theft, then it can much more difficult to obtain a fiduciary bond.

To be certain, you'll want to contact a surety professional directly and request more information based on the details and your bond needs. Feel free to get in touch with a dedicated agent today at and they'd be happy to help you out. You can call 1-800-308-4358 or request a quote at
