§37-13-4. Hearing; discretion in granting or refusing relief;
No sooner than three weeks from the filing of such petition
the court shall take evidence upon relief sought, together with
any evidence presented in opposition thereto. In granting or
denying such relief the court shall consider, as well as other
evidence adduced, evidence as to the wishes of all persons
concerned, whether living or deceased, and shall exercise a sound
discretion in granting or refusing, in whole or in part, the
relief sought. If the court is satisfied with the propriety of
the relief sought by plaintiffs it shall enter an order granting
the same, either in whole or in part.
