CHAPTER 11
 
 
HEARINGS BEFORE
THE REGISTER

 

 
 
 
 
A. Petition
for Citation

A hearing before the Register (other than a caveat hearing) is generally initiated by the filing of a Petition for a Citation to Show Cause why a respondent should not perform some act or acknowledge some fact regarding the grant of Letters.

The Register will issue the original citation to the petitioner, who must make service of a photocopy of the citation and the petition upon all interested parties at least 10 days prior to the return date shown on the citation. Personal service and service by certified mail, return receipt requested are both accepted by the Register.

The respondents and other parties in interest may but are not required to file an answer or preliminary objections on or before the return date. The failure to file a responsive pleading will not be conclusive of any matter at issue.
