Area of Law:
I am not a lawyer. I drafted a will for my wife's uncle who lived in Camden County New Jersey and recently died. The will was signed in front of two witnesses, who then both signed the Will. It was not notarized. There was no mention of a Bond requirement in the Will. The Surragate Court in Camden is telling us that unless the Will stated no bond is required that the Executor, his daughter, and also a resident of New Jersey, requires a Surety Bond. Is this legal ?
