Bill of Conformity Law and Legal Definition

Bill of conformity is a bill in equity by which an executor or administrator seeks to secure the aid of the court in the administration of an involved estate. It is filed by an executor or administrator, who finds the affairs of the deceased so much involved that he cannot safely administer the estate, except under the direction of a court of chancery. This bill is filed against the creditors generally, for the purpose of having all their claims adjusted, and procuring a final decree settling the order of payment of the assets.
