AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 39, TITLE 12, DELAWARE CODE, RELATING TO GUARDIAN AND WARD BY PROVIDING FOR WAIVER OF BOND AND COURT COSTS IN CASES OF INDIGENT WARDS.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. § 3914, Chapter 39, Title 12, Delaware Code, is amended by adding at end of said section two new subsections to be known as subsection (f) and subsection (g) to read as follows :

(f) In all cases where, in the opinion of the Orphan's Court, the resources and estate of the person for whose property a guardian is sought are insufficient to warrant the payment of costs and fees, the Orphan's Court may by order provide that the guardian so appointed need not give bond either with or without surety as otherwise required by law, and may further provide that in such cases all costs and fees shall be waived.

(g) The Orphan's Court may make and promulgate such rules with respect to practice and procedure under subsection (f) as may be necessary to give effect thereto.

Approved June 1, 1955.
