Probate Practice and Procedure

Bonds of Executors, Administrators, and Guardians

SECTION 33-17-6

§ 33-17-6. Defective bonds.

An executor, administrator or guardian who has given to the probate court an instrument purporting to be a bond, which has been accepted as a bond by the court having jurisdiction to accept it, shall be qualified as if he or she had given a proper bond, notwithstanding any defect in the instrument and notwithstanding any error committed in giving or accepting the bond; but nothing contained in this section shall affect the right of appeal in these cases or the right of the court to require a proper bond at any time. In case an appeal be sustained, the provisions of § 33-17-5 shall not apply, if a new and satisfactory bond be given within thirty (30) days after a final decree in the appeal.
