A. At the time judgment is rendered appointing a curator for an absent person, the court shall also appoint a responsible person as undercurator. Before entering upon the performance of his official duties, the undercurator must take an oath to discharge faithfully the duties of his office.
B. The undercurator shall express his concurrence or nonconcurrence in action suggested by the curator to the court, as set forth in R.S. 13:3440, and shall act for the absent person whenever the absent person's interest is opposed to that of the curator.
C. The undercurator shall apply to the court for an order compelling the curator to file an account whenever the curator has failed to file his annual account or at any other time when the circumstances indicate that an account should be filed.
D. The curatorship does not devolve upon the undercurator when it is vacant. If a vacancy occurs, the undercurator shall apply to the court for the appointment of a new curator. The undercurator may apply to be appointed as the new curator.
E. The undercurator is relieved of further duty and authority as undercurator when the curatorship terminates; however, his liability for acts prior thereto shall not be affected.
