Statute 59-1507: Summary proceedings.
Whenever it is established that the estate of a decedent, exclusive of
the homestead and allowances to the spouse and minor children, does not
exceed the amounts required for funeral expenses, expenses of last
sickness, wages of servants during the last sickness, costs of
administration, debts having preference under the laws of the United States
or this state, and taxes, the executor or administrator may by order of the
court pay the same in the order named, and present his or her account with an
application for the settlement and allowance thereof. Thereupon the court
with or without notice, may adjust, correct, settle, allow or disallow such
account, and if the account is allowed, summarily determine the heirs,
legatees, and devisees, and close the administration.
