Section 3-305: Informal probate; magistrate not satisfied

Section 3-305. [Informal Probate; Magistrate Not Satisfied.]

(a) If the magistrate is not satisfied that a will is entitled to be probated in informal proceedings because of failure to meet the requirements of sections 3-303 and 3-304 or any other reason, the magistrate may decline the petition. A declination of informal probate is not an adjudication and shall not preclude formal probate proceedings.

[There is no subsection (b).]
