2-7-505. Procedure for setting off exempt property.
Any time during the administration of an estate and after the first publication of notice of opening the probate and the filing of the appraisement, any person interested may file a petition showing the necessary facts and praying to have the exempt property of the estate including the homestead set over to the person or persons entitled thereto. Upon filing of the petition, the court shall require all persons interested to appear on a day certain to show cause why the exempt property should not be set over to the person or persons entitled thereto. The order shall be published once in a newspaper of general circulation in the county in which the probate is pending and a copy of the order to show cause shall be mailed by the personal representative to each heir and beneficiary. The publication and mailing shall be not less than ten (10) days prior to the date set for the hearing. At the time set for the hearing or to which the hearing is continued, the court shall hear the evidence and make such order as the facts and law require. If the whole estate of the decedent is found to be exempt and is set over to the person or persons entitled thereto, no further proceeding is required in the administration of the estate unless further estate is discovered. The publication and notice may be combined with and included in the notice of opening the probate, but the hearing shall not be held less than ten (10) days after the filing of the appraisement.
