Waiver of Extradition Form
What does the standard extradition of bond form in Florida look like? After being detained in a Florida jail on an out of state fugitive from justice warrant, you might be asked to sign a “waiver of extradition” form.
The forms used in the different counties in Florida vary, but we added the language from one such sample “waiver of extradition” form below.
