What is a New York Surrogate's court citation?

A Citation is a formal name for a notice that must be served on the distributees of an estate. The Citation tells the distributees that the Executor has filed a petition to obtain authority over the property of the estate. The Surrogate's Court obtains jurisdiction over the distributes once the Citation is served on them.
