(755 ILCS 5/12-11) (from Ch. 110 1/2, par. 12-11)
    Sec. 12-11. Counter security - release of surety.) (a) If the court believes a representative to be insolvent or in doubtful circumstances, upon petition of the surety on his bond, the court may require the representative to give counter security to his surety.
    (b) If a representative or the surety on his bond petitions the court to have the surety released from further liability on the bond, except for good cause shown the court shall require the representative within a reasonable time to be fixed by the court to settle his accounts and to give a new bond in such amount and security as may be approved by the court.
    (c) Notice of hearing on the account shall be given as provided by this Act for the hearing on final accounts. Upon approval by the court of the account and of the new bond the surety on the old bond is discharged from all further liability.
    (d) If a representative fails to pay the annual bond premium within 120 days of the date he has received notice from the surety company that the premium is due and owing, the surety company may elect to terminate its liability on the bond by notifying the representative and his attorney, if any, and all interested parties that liability on the bond shall cease 60 days after the date of said notice which shall be given by certified mail and a copy thereof shall be filed with the Court forthwith. If payment is not made within the required time, the terminating surety shall by motion notify the court of its election to terminate and shall give notice of such motion to the representative and all interested parties. The court shall then require the representative to give a new bond in such amount and with such security as it may require.
