CHAPTER 33-11
Claims Against Decedents' Estates

SECTION 33-11-15


§ 33-11-15 Petition for filing of late disallowance.

A personal representative, or any interested party, who has failed to disallow any claim within the time prescribed by § 33-11-14, may at any time before the distribution of the estate, if the claim has not been paid, petition the probate court for leave to disallow the claim out of time. Upon hearing after notice to all interested parties, the probate court may in its discretion grant leave to disallow the claim out of time upon such terms as the court prescribes; and if the claim is disallowed within the time fixed by the court it has the same effect as if disallowed within the time prescribed by § 33-11-14.
