Section 6-6-522

Trustee - Appointment.

If the allegations of the complaint are admitted, either expressly or by failure to answer thereto, or it is established by proof that the allegations of the complaint are true and that such person is wasting his estate, or is for the cause alleged unfit for its management, so that such person will probably be reduced to want, the circuit court judge must deprive him of all further control over it and provide for its safekeeping by the appointment of a trustee, who shall give bond in double the value of the estate committed to him, to be approved by the register or clerk.
