NJ Rev Stat § 46:38-18 (2016) What's This?

46:38-18. Acceptance of custodianship; notice
(a) If a custodial gift includes a security not in registered form the execution by the custodian designee of the acknowledgment of receipt described in section 3(b) of this act constitutes acceptance of the custodianship.

(b) If a custodial gift does not include a security not in registered form, the custodian designee shall be deemed to have accepted the custodianship upon the execution by him and delivery to the donor of a notice in writing of his acceptance of the custodianship. Such written notice of acceptance, when given to the donor upon opening an account with a bank or broker in the custodian's name shall be deemed written acceptance of all subsequent gifts made through such account until the custodian delivers written notification to the donor to the contrary. If the custodian designee does not deliver such a notice of acceptance to the donor within 10 days of the making of the gift, the donor shall promptly deliver to the custodian designee a notice in writing requesting an acceptance or renunciation. If the custodian designee fails to deliver to the donor a written notice of acceptance or renunciation within 10 days after delivery to him of the request, he shall be deemed to have renounced. In that event the donor shall make a written recital of the failure to respond and the consequent renunciation. The donor shall promptly cause a copy of each writing sent, received or made by him to be delivered to each successor custodian and to the minor if he is then 14 years of age or more.
