Before making an appointment under the provisions of this chapter the court shall
be satisfied that the guardian whose appointment is sought is a fit and proper person
to be appointed. Upon the appointment being made the guardian shall execute and file a bond to be
approved by the court in an amount not less than the sum then due and estimated to
become payable during the ensuing year. The said bond shall be in the form and be conditioned as required of guardians appointed
under the guardianship laws of this state. The court shall have the power from time to time to require the guardian to file
an additional bond.
Where a bond is tendered by a guardian with personal sureties, such sureties shall
file with the court a certificate under oath which shall describe the property owned,
both real and personal, and that they are each worth the sum named in the bond as
the penalty thereof over and above all their debts and liabilities and exclusive of
property exempt from execution.
