N.Y. Correction Law Section 356
Proceedings on return of order to show cause

Upon the return of an order to show cause, made as prescribed in the last section, proof of the service thereof, as required thereby, must first be made; whereupon the court must hear the allegations and proofs of the creditors, and other persons interested in the estate, who appear. Where the prisoner is indebted to any person, the court must appoint one or more trustees, unless the persons interested in the prisoner’s property pay the debt, or give such security, as the court prescribes, for the payment thereof, either absolutely, or contingently upon a recovery in an action; in which case or where the prisoner is not indebted, the court may grant or deny the prayer of the petition, as justice requires.
