Title 29 - Guardian and Ward
Chapter 7 - Veterans Affairs Guardians
§ 29-7-10. Bond requirements; discharge of surety on bond
(a) A bank or trust company doing business in this state shall not be required to file a bond for any VA guardianship unless required by the department.
(b) Any other person serving as a VA guardian shall execute and file a bond, to be approved by the court, in an amount not less than the sum of the value of the estate, other than real property, at the time of the last accounting and funds estimated to become payable during the ensuing year, which bond shall be a security bond made by a solvent and acceptable surety company in the form required for bonds of guardians or conservators appointed under the general guardianship or conservatorship laws and shall be conditioned as are such bonds. After each annual accounting, the court shall review the amount of the bond and shall order such increase or decrease as shall be warranted by the accounting. No reduction in the bond amount shall affect the liability of the surety for past waste or misconduct of the VA guardian.
(c) A surety on a bond posted pursuant to this Code section shall not be relieved from liability merely because of the expiration of the term of the bond but shall be subject to provisions of law for discharge of a surety applicable to other bonds.
