  473.833.  Revocation of independent administration, when — petition — hearing — orders of court. — 1.  An independent personal representative, or any interested person, may, at any time, file a petition to revoke the provisions of letters testamentary or of administration authorizing independent administration.  The petitioner shall serve a copy of such petition on each interested person at the time the petition is filed with the court.

  2.  Upon the filing of such petition, the court shall determine the extent of petitioner's interest in the estate and, if it shall find that such interest is more than nominal, the court shall order a hearing on the petition, directing notice thereof to be given to all interested persons, and may specify the time within which such interested persons shall file answers to such petition.  If, upon motion of any interested person, the court finds that the petitioner's interest is nominal, the court may dismiss the petition.

  3.  The court may enter such interlocutory orders as it deems necessary to protect the assets of the estate pending a full hearing, or to determine whether or not the independent personal representative has properly administered the estate.

  4.  After hearing on the petition, the court may enter an order directing supervised administration, or the court may deny the petition conditioned upon the performance of some act by the independent personal representative, or the court may grant such other relief as the court deems appropriate under the circumstances.  If the court finds that the actions of the independent personal representative have resulted in loss to the estate, the court may, in addition to ordering supervised administration, remove the personal representative and enter a judgment against him and his sureties, if any, in accordance with the provisions of section 473.207.

  5.  After an order revoking authorization for independent administration has been entered, the administration of the estate shall proceed under the provisions of this chapter other than sections 473.780 to 473.843.
