N.Y. Abandoned Property Law Section 1206
Service of notice and petition


The notice and petition shall be served upon the clerk of the court into which or into whose registry the fund or property has been paid or deposited or which has control or custody thereof, or which has jurisdiction to make orders for the payment of such money to the rightful owners thereof, together with a notice that no personal claim is made against him, and also upon the United States attorney for the district in which such court is located.


The notice shall be served by publication, as hereinafter set forth, upon the other respondents described in subdivisions (a) and (b) of § 1204 (Respondents)section twelve hundred four of this act. The court, upon finding that the petition sufficiently sets forth the facts required under § 1201 (Presumption of abandonment)section twelve hundred one of this article, may make any or all of the presumptions set forth in such section and make an order directing that the notice be served upon such respondents by publication thereof not less than once in each of four successive weeks in two newspapers in the English language designated in the order as most likely to give notice to such owners or claimants, which newspapers shall be published in the county in which the escheat proceeding shall be commenced, and also by publication thereof in the state bulletin as provided in the executive law.
