What is a Probate Bond?

A Probate Bond (also known as a fiduciary bond ) guarantees the faithful performance of duties by fiduciaries such as executors, administrators, guardians and trustees. Probate bonds are required in relation to the estate of deceased persons, minors and other incompetent persons.

A fiduciary is a person, bank or trust company appointed by order of a court to administer the estate or property of another who, for some reason, is unable to manage his or her own affairs. Court fiduciaries are generally required by law to provide a surety bond for the faithful performance of their duties and compliance with the orders of the court having jurisdiction.
