§3-107. Scope of proceedings; proceedings independent; exception

Unless supervised administration as described in Part 5 is involved:   [PL 2017, c. 402, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); PL 2019, c. 417, Pt. B, §14 (AFF).]

1.  Proceedings independent.  Each proceeding before the court or register is independent of any other proceeding involving the same estate;

2.  Petitions for formal orders.  Petitions for formal orders of the court may combine various requests for relief in a single proceeding if the orders sought may be finally granted without delay. Except as required for proceedings that are particularly described by other sections of this Article, a petition is not defective because it fails to embrace all matters that might then be the subject of a final order;  

[PL 2017, c. 402, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); PL 2019, c. 417, Pt. B, §14 (AFF).]

3.  Petitions for appointment of personal representative.  Proceedings for probate of wills or adjudications of no will may be combined with proceedings for appointment of personal representatives; and
