Pennsylvania Probate

If you have recently lost a loved one in Pennsylvania, you may be faced with the Pennsylvania probate process. In Philadelphia, Bucks County, Montgomery County and Delaware County (areas where we practice), probate generally works the same.

Probate is the process of the county Register of Wills appointing an Executor or Administrator. Whether or not an individual has a will, probate is still typically required.

Sometimes, probate can be handled without attorney assistance in Pennsylvania. However, many Executors or Administrators decide to hire a probate attorney to assist them with ensuring accounting is done properly, creditor issues are dealt with, inheritance taxes and estate taxes are filed properly, etc. Also, an attorney is needed if there are family conflicts, will challenges or estate contests.
