TRUSTEE IN WAR SERVICE (EXCERPT)
Act 195 of 1943
35.514 Trustee; order for appearance, publication and mailing, proof.
Whenever a petition filed under the provisions of section 1 hereof by a person other than the trustee engaged in war service, shall be duly sworn to and shall state that the trustee engaged in war service cannot be personally served by reason of his absence from the state of Michigan, the court shall, on the filing thereof, issue an order for the appearance of such trustee within 35 days from the date of said order. Said order shall be published within 10 days from the date of this issuance in a newspaper printed and circulating in the county in which said petition is pending, or such other newspaper as the court may direct, once each week for 3 successive weeks. A copy of said order shall be sent by registered mail to the trustee engaged in war service at his last known post office address not later than 10 days prior to the time of the hearing on said petition, and a return receipt shall be demanded. Due proof of such publication and of the sending by registered mail of a copy of said order shall be made and filed in such proceeding. In all cases where such order shall have been issued on the basis of such sworn petition and service thereof shall have been made as herein provided, a return that process has not been personally served on such trustee shall be unnecessary. If the trustee engaged in war service shall be duly represented by an attorney of record in the proceeding in which said petition is pending, service of such order on such trustee by publication or otherwise shall not be required, provided notice be given in the manner provided for service of pleadings in suits pending in the circuit court.
