An ancillary personal representative shall be subject to the laws of this state governing the administration of estates generally, except that by order of the probate court granted after notice to the persons known to have an interest in or claim against the estate in this state as an unsatisfied heir, beneficiary, or creditor residing in this state, the personal representative may be directed to:

(1) Pay only those debts determined by the probate court to constitute administrative expenses or other debts incurred by the personal representative and debts payable to creditors residing or situated in this state;

(2) Make distribution to any heirs or beneficiaries residing or situated in this state to the extent that the probate court determines to be practicable and not to the detriment of a testamentary scheme; and

(3) If the provisions of paragraph (1) or (2) of this Code section or both paragraphs apply to the estate, distribute all property remaining in the hands of the ancillary personal representative to the personal representative qualified in the domiciliary jurisdiction rather than to the distributees of the estate.
