TO: Me
A petition having been duly filed by ____ YOU ARE HEREBY CITED TO SHOW CAUSE before the Surrogate Court why a decree should not be made in the estate of ____ admitting to probate a Will relating to real and personal property and directing that the filing of a bond be despised with the Surrogate Court. What do filling of a bond mean?
Hello! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping and providing you information today.

My condolences on the loss of a loved one. Filing of a bond means the filing of an insurance policy so that creditors and/or beneficiaries are secured/assured payment that may be due from the estate. It says if I don't pay a bond (insurance policy) filed will pay the person.

Basically the petition is require that the person show cause why a bond (insurance policy securing payment) should not be required while the claim is being adjudicated. The filing of the bond can be despised meaning not agreed with based on a showing an estate is insolvent or that the estate can make good on a claim against it without posting a bond.

All my best & encouragement.
