Administrator and Executor bonds (also called Probate Bonds) are required by county courts in West Virginia of persons appointed to handle a deceased's estate. These bonds generally guarantee that all the estate debts will be satisfied and that the remaining assets will be properly distributed to the appropriate heirs. Because of the complexities involved, the surety usually requires that the applicant obtain the assistance of an attorney, although we do have markets that will consider bonds for qualified applicants without an attorney. Bond amounts are determined by the court. Bond premiums must be paid annually until the estate is properly settled.

Executor Bond - Required when the deceased left a Will and named someone in the Will to serve as executor. The surety will usually want to see a copy of the Will to determine to complexity of handling the estate in West Virginia.

Administrator Bond - Required when the deceased died intestate (without a Will). The court will usually appoint one of the primary heirs to serve in this capacity. Assets should be dispursed in accordance with the state's laws in West Virginia.

Trustee Bond - Usually required when a deceased leaves a Will and designates to leave some assets "in trust" to a beneficiary. In all cases, the surety must review a copy of the Trust.

If the state of West Virginia would have asked to be a state, it wouldn't be one at all. It is the only state in America to have been formed by taking land from another state. Thus giving West Virginia the most irregular borders of any state in the country. The state also has the highest average age, at 40 years. There are many towns in West Virginia named for international cities, like Berlin, Athens, Moscow, Palermo, Shanghai, Vienna, and London. The state has had many firsts for women. In 1928, Minnie Buckingham Harper became the first female, African-American U.S. legislator. The first prison, solely for women, opened in Alderson in 1926. The prison has also had many famous criminals including Martha Stewart, Billie Holiday, and Sara Jane Moore. Also, the first newspaper aimed at women, the "Ladies Garland", started in Harper's Ferry in 1824. The first American's to have food-stamps, in 1961, were the Muncy and Chloe families. West Virginia is still among the highest poverty states in the country.
