No property paid into court, or income from such property, shall be paid out except
upon order of the court directing payment to a specified person, except that if the
property so paid into court, or the income from such property, inclusive of interest,
does not exceed fifty dollars, a county treasurer may pay the same, without a court
order, to the person entitled thereto or his authorized attorney. When the whole or remaining balance of all payments of money into court in an action,
or the whole or remaining balance of a distributive share thereof, or any security
or other property, is directed to be paid out of court, the order must direct the
payment of all accrued income belonging to the party to whom such money or distributive
share or remaining balance thereof, or security or other property is paid. A certified copy of the order directing payment shall be delivered to the county
treasurer or other custodian of the property. The custodian, in the case of money, shall draw a draft payable to the order of
the party entitled thereto specifying the title of the cause or matter on account
of which the draft is made and the date of the order authorizing the draft. A certified copy of the order, accompanied by a draft in the case of money, shall
be delivered to the depository of the property before it shall pay out any property. If an order directs that periodic payments be made, the filing of one copy of the
order shall be sufficient to authorize the payment of subsequent drafts in pursuance
thereof. Any other provision of law to the contrary notwithstanding, if an order directing
payment by the county treasurer is made by the court, the copy of the order to be
delivered to the county treasurer and the depository as herein provided shall be certified
by the clerk of the court to be a true copy of the original of such order on file
in his office.
