Oregon Court and Probate Bonds

Oregon has a variety of surety bond requirements related to court and probate. These regulations are often enforced by county courts, and are broken into the following categories: probate/fiduciary bonds and civil/judicial bonds.

Probate Bonds


Courts in Oregon require a person acting as an administrator or executor (personal representative) to secure a surety bond to ensure they fulfill obligations.


Trustees are often asked to provide a surety bond to protect the trust’s assets and beneficiaries.


Conservators and guardians, also known as fiduciaries, need to hold a surety bond to guarantee they will not act in a fraudulent manner while doing fiduciary duties.

Court Bonds


In order to take possession of property held by another prior to a court's decision, a Replevin Bond can be utilized to retake possession.


The appellant must provide this bond to appeal a lower court's judgement, to guarantee payment is made upon a jurisdiction being reached.

Counter Replevin

Keep possession of property by countering a replevin move by requesting the use of a counter replevin bond from the court.
