WVC 44 - 12 - 2
§44-12-2. Report by clerk to county court; hearing on same.
The probate of every will and the appointment of every
appraiser of the estate of a decedent, executor, administrator,
guardian, curator and committee so made by such clerk, shall be
reported by him to the next regular session of the county court,
when, if no objection be made thereto and none appears to the
court, the court shall confirm the same. But if objection be
made by any person interested, the county court shall hear and
determine the same, and shall proceed in relation thereto in the
same manner as if the application for the probate of such will,
or for the appointment of such appraiser of the estate of a
decedent, executor, administrator, guardian, curator or committee
had been made to such court in the first instance. And the court
may make from time to time, pending such proceedings, such orders
as it may deem necessary for the protection and safekeeping of
the estate of the testator, intestate or ward.
