SECTION 161
Claims of nonresidents against insurers domiciled in this state.
F.S. 631.161
631.161 Claims of nonresidents against insurers domiciled in this state.
(1) In a liquidation proceeding begun in this state against an insurer domiciled in this state, claimants residing in foreign countries or in states which are not reciprocal must file claims in this state, and claimants residing in reciprocal states may file claims either with the ancillary receivers, if any, in their respective states or with the domiciliary receiver. Claims must be filed on or before the last date fixed for the filing of claims in the domiciliary liquidation proceeding.
(2) Claims belonging to claimants residing in reciprocal states may be proved either in the liquidation proceeding in this state as provided in this part or in ancillary proceedings, if any, in the reciprocal states. If notice of the claims and opportunity to appear and be heard is afforded the domiciliary receiver of this state as provided in s. 631.171(2) with respect to ancillary proceedings, the final allowance of claims by the courts in ancillary proceedings in reciprocal states shall be conclusive as to amount and as to priority of special deposit or secured claims arising in an ancillary state but shall not be conclusive with respect to priorities against general assets under s. 631.271.
