Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a probate bond?
    A probate bond, also known as a fiduciary bond, is a financial guarantee required in legal situations where an individual, such as an administrator, executor or guardian, is appointed to manage the assets or affairs of another party, typically in the context of a probate or guardianship case. This bond provides protection for the estate's beneficiaries and other stakeholders, ensuring that the individual entrusted with these responsibilities carries them out faithfully and honestly.
  • Why is a surety bond needed?
    A surety bond is needed to provide financial security and peace of mind to all parties involved in a legal or financial arrangement. It ensures that the bonded individual will fulfill their obligations in accordance with the law and the terms of the bond. This protection is crucial in situations where the consequences of misconduct or negligence could be detrimental to others.
