Maine Revised Statutes

§8-108. Appointment

If such absentee has left no corporeal property within the State, but there are debts or obligations due or owing to him from persons within the State, a petition may be filed as provided in section 8-101, stating the nature and amount of such debts and obligations so far as known, and praying that a receiver thereof may be appointed. The court may thereupon issue a notice as provided, without issuing a warrant, and may, upon the return of said notice and after a hearing, dismiss the petition or appoint a receiver and authorize and direct him to demand and collect the debts and obligations of said absentee. Said receiver shall give bond as provided in section 8-105, and shall hold the proceeds of such debts and obligations and all property received by him and distribute the same as provided.
