The Legislative Service Commission staff updates the Revised Code on an ongoing basis, as it completes its act review of enacted legislation. Updates may be slower during some times of the year, depending on the volume of enacted legislation.

Section 2109.16 | One bond for two or more wards.


When a person is appointed guardian of several minors who are children of the same parentage and inherit from the same estate, separate bonds shall not be required. In such cases, only one application for letters of guardianship is necessary, and the letters issued to such guardian shall be in one copy and not one copy for each minor. The probate court approving and recording the bond of the guardian, if any, and issuing such letters shall charge the fees allowed by section 2101.16 of the Revised Code for such services. Such fees shall be charged but once for all the wards and not once for each ward.
