Where Is Probate Handled?

In Pennsylvania, probate matters fall under the jurisdiction of the Orphans’ Court. While the term might sound antiquated, this court is dedicated entirely to such issues and is where you, as an executor, will spend time fulfilling your duties. Pennsylvania’s probate process is uniform, ensuring a consistent legal framework no matter which Orphans’ Court your loved one’s estate is probated in. However, local nuances make it essential to have a lawyer’s support as you go through proceedings.

What Does Probate Involve?

Before and during probate, you, as an executor, will take a series of important steps. These include:

  • Filing the probate petition
  • Giving notice of probate proceedings to beneficiaries
  • Validating the will
  • Accounting for assets and debts
  • Paying debts and taxes
  • Distributing the remaining estate to beneficiaries

Each step of probate demands attention to detail and an understanding of legal procedures. Our probate attorneys will help you ensure that you meet all legal requirements and deadlines.
