Administrator - Executor Bonds

Administrator Surety Bonds, also known as an Executor Surety Bond are required by the Probate Court to ensure that the Appointed Fiduciary of an Estate will properly distribute the assets of the deceased party without perpetrating fraud or improper use of the funds.   In order to qualify for an Administrator surety bond, the applicant should have good credit and display an ability to manage their own credit and finances.  The involvement of an attorney is recommended for the duration of the probate case due to filing requirements of the court.

  • Administrator Surety Bonds - Cum Testamento annexo (With Will Annexed) - Wherein the deceased left a will, but not naming an Administrator/Executor or the named Administrator/Executor fails to qualify.
