WVC 44 - 4 - 5 §44-4-5. Examination of bonds at time of accounting, and when requested by interested party.
When any fiduciary, except a sheriff, presents the statement required of him by law before a fiduciary commissioner or before a commissioner in chancery having before him the account of the fiduciary for settlement, the fiduciary commissioner or commissioner in chancery, as the case may be, shall examine whether the fiduciary has given bond as the law requires, and whether the penalty thereof and the sureties thereon are sufficient. The fiduciary commissioner to whom the estate or trust was referred shall, upon the application of any interested person at any time before the statement is presented, and after reasonable notice to the fiduciary, examine any matters, or inquire whether security ought to be required of a fiduciary who may have been allowed to qualify without giving it, or whether, by reason of the incapacity, misconduct or removal of any fiduciary from this state, or for any other cause, it is improper to permit the estate of the decedent, ward, beneficiary, or other person, to remain under his control. The result of every examination and inquiry shall be reported by the fiduciary commissioner to the county commission then having jurisdiction over the fiduciary and his account.
