Many times after you're asked to be bonded, the first question is why? That's pretty simple. If the probate court asked for you to be bonded then its not because your'e not trustworthy. Actually its really the opposite. You have to be trustworthy to be bonded and the bond is just a requirement of the court or extra protection. As long as you carry out your duties faithfully as you are sworn to do with the court, then the bond is marly a formality. Besides your reputation is at stake here. If you were to misuse the money then the insurance company may have to pay a claim and ultimately you may have to reimburse the insurance company. The staff and judges at the probate court are experienced in helping you through the process and explaining what is required. Triest Agency will work with clients who are not represented by an attorney but we highly recommend hiring an attorney that is an expert at the probate process.
Triest Agency has the easiest bond process and has the experience necessary to handle your bonding needs. Getting a probate bond from an insurance agency or someone who is not an expert at these types of bonds could be a costly and frustrating mistake.
