WY Stat § 2-7-807 (2016) What's This?

2-7-807. Distribution before final settlement; notice; hearing; costs.

(a) Any time after thirty (30) days from expiration of time for filing claims the personal representative or any distributee may file a petition with the court for partial or complete distribution of any share of the estate.

(b) Notice of the petition and the time set by the court for hearing shall be given to the personal representative and to all persons entitled to notice as provided in W.S. 2-7-205. At the hearing any other distributee may resist the petition or make a similar petition for himself.

(c) If it appears to the court there is property ready for distribution held by the personal representative over and above the amount necessary to pay the costs of administration and all just claims and taxes of the estate, the court shall direct the personal representative to distribute to each distributee his proportion of the property ready for distribution. The court may require each distributee to give bond to secure payment of his proportion of the debts and taxes of the estate.

(d) All costs, expenses and fees incurred in this proceeding shall be paid by the estate unless the court determines the proceeding was instituted capriciously and without merit, whereupon the court shall order all costs, expenses and fees be paid into the estate by the party instituting the same.
