New York Correction Law
Sec. § 355
Proceedings Upon Presentation of the Papers

Upon the presentation of the papers, the court may, in its discretion, make an order, either appointing one or more fit persons trustees of the property of the prisoner; or requiring all creditors of the prisoner, and all persons interested in his estate, to show cause, at a time and place specified therein, why such an appointment should not be made. In the latter case, the order must direct the manner of service thereof, by publication or otherwise.
