Section 18-1A-291

Distribution of award - Filing of claims by owners or parties; determination of claims by probate court.

Any one of the owners or parties alleged in the complaint to own or hold any claim, interest or title in the lands sought to be condemned may, after the granting of the application, file with the probate court his claim for his part or division of the award made by commissioners; and upon the filing of such claim and upon the payment by the plaintiff into probate court of such award, the probate court shall set down for hearing the claim so filed by such party and determine the same. Upon such determination, the probate court shall distribute the funds to each of the parties so entitled thereto in the sum and manner in which the facts disclosed upon the hearing show each of said parties to be so entitled, less all court costs arising from the filing of each such claim.
