In essence, court surety bonds make sure you meet your legal responsibilities.

Probate Bond: Ensures responsible estate management by court-appointed representatives.

A probate bond, often known as a fiduciary bond or an executor bond, is a bond requested by a court before appointing a personal representative. It’s there to ensure they carry out their duties honestly and responsibly, protecting the estate and its beneficiaries.

  • Personal Representative – This is the executor or administrator – an individual or entity appointed by the court to manage the affairs of a deceased person’s estate, including distributing assets, paying debts, and fulfilling other legal obligations.

Appeal Bond: Secures appeal costs and protects prevailing parties.

An appeal bond, also known as a supersedeas bond, is needed for appealing a court ruling. It ensures that if the appeal is unsuccessful, the party appealing the decision can cover any costs and damages resulting from the delay. This protects the prevailing (”winning”) party from losses during the appeal process, while also protecting their rights during the process.

Custodian Bond: Ensures ethical asset management for dependents.

A custodian bond, also referred to as a guardianship bond, provides assurance that individuals serving as custodians or guardians for minors, disabled persons, or elderly adults adhere to the required standards and regulations. This bond ensures ethical and lawful management of the assets belonging to the individual under their care.
