Claims Against Decedents' Estates

SECTION 33-11-9

§ 33-11-9. Presentation of contingent claim – Deposit by personal representative to assure payment.

A creditor who has a contingent claim against a decedent, which cannot be proved as a debt within the time allowed for presenting claims, may present its contingent claim within the time allowed for filing claims. If it is determined by the probate court, upon hearing after notice to all interested parties, that the contingent claim may become due from the estate, the personal representative shall be ordered to deposit in the registry of the court assets sufficient to satisfy the claim, or its proportionate share in case of insolvency of the estate.
