Court bonds are broken down further into two separate categories-judicial and probate/fiduciary.
Judicial bonds are for either plaintiffs (such as preliminary injunction, attachment, and cost bonds) or for defendants (appeal bonds, removal bonds, discharge of mechanics liens). Generally, judicial bonds are required in civil court actions when a litigant seeks either a special right or remedy in advance of a ruling that could prove financially negative results for the other party.
Probate/fiduciary bonds are issued in order to comply with a court order. The bond guarantees that the appointed guardian, executor, administrator, conservator or trustee will faithfully perform the duties prescribed by law and the court and will demonstrate financial responsibility for the benefit of the estate and its heirs.
It’s important to note that there must be an attorney involved before we can consider court bonds—either judicial or probate. Bond underwriters will not accept in-pro-per cases (a fiduciary acting alone without benefit of counsel).
