Domiciliary Administration Law and Legal Definition
Domiciliary administration means the settlement and distribution of a decedent's estate in the state where the defendant was domiciled at death. It is considered as the principal or primary administration and it is distinguishable from ancillary administration.
In In re Estate of Radu, 35 Ohio App. 2d 187, 195 (Ohio Ct. App. 1973), the court observed that a claim already allowed by the Court in the domiciliary administration cannot be subjected to re-adjudication by the Probate Court. Similarly the rights of nonresident creditors, distributees and legatees, other than legatees of specific property within the state, are subject to adjudication only in domiciliary administration proceedings.
