Subchapter 003 : Bonds

(Cite as: 14 V.S.A. § 2754)
  • § 2754. New bond

    A ward, the heir apparent of a ward, or a person interested in the welfare of a ward, as defined in section 3061 of this title, may file a motion with the Probate Division of the Superior Court to require the guardian to give a new and sufficient bond. If it appears to the court that the bond is insufficient, the court may order the guardian to give a new and sufficient bond. When it appears on the motion of a surety in a guardian's bond that the surety is liable to be injured thereby, the court may discharge the surety from future responsibility and order the guardian to give a new bond. After being notified of the order, if the guardian does not give a new bond, the court may remove the guardian and appoint some other person. (Amended 1985, No. 144 (Adj. Sess.), § 131; 2009, No. 154 (Adj. Sess.), § 238a, eff. Feb. 1, 2011.)
