Nevada Wills and Estates of Deceased Persons

Sec. § 142.035
Jurisdiction of court over surety; clerk of court appointed as agent of surety; enforcement of liability of surety.

If a personal representative is required by a court pursuant to the provisions of this chapter to provide security in the form of cash or a bond, stipulation or other undertaking with one or more sureties, each surety for that security submits to the jurisdiction of the court which ordered the security, and irrevocably appoints the clerk of that court as the agent upon whom any papers affecting the surety’s liability on the security may be served. The liability of the surety may be enforced on petition without the necessity of an independent action. The petition and such notice of the hearing upon the petition as the court prescribes may be served on the clerk of the court, who shall mail copies to the surety at the surety’s last known address.
