Transfer to another county in the State.) If it appears to the
court in which a ward's estate is being administered that the interests of the ward are
best served by the transfer of the administration of the ward's
estate to another county in this State by reason of the residence of the ward
or of the representative or of the location of the major portion of the ward's
property in that county, the court may enter an order in the estate transferring
of the estate to the court of that county. Upon the filing of authenticated
copies of the
order of transfer and of all documents filed and all orders entered in the court
from which the transfer is made and the qualifying by the representative in the court
to which the transfer is made, that court shall enter the estate upon its docket,
issue letters of office and direct the administration of the estate as if letters of
office had originally issued from that court. Upon the filing of
an authenticated copy of the letters in the court from which the
transfer is made, the letters issued by that court shall be revoked.
The representative shall file in the court to which the transfer is made
authenticated copies of his final account and all orders in connection
therewith entered in the court from which the transfer is made.
Authenticated copies of documents and orders of the court from which
the transfer is made have the same force and effect as if the documents were filed or
the orders entered in the court to which the transfer is made.
