A Look At Probating A Loved-One's Estate

Whether a person dies with or without a will in Pennsylvania, their estate will pass into what is called probate. This legal process can involve things like:

  • Proving the validity of a will
  • Assembling the decedent's assets for distribution
  • Making distributions to those named in the will
  • Paying back debts
  • Preparing inheritance tax returns
  • Addressing the breach of fiduciary duty

Much of what takes place during probate litigation is handled by a personal representative who can either be appointed by the court or through the decedent's will. The personal representative must handle the administration of the decedent's estate to the best of their abilities, otherwise they risk litigation of their own.

If your loved one dies, we can probate their estate. We file the inheritance tax returns, gather and distribute assets, deal with creditors ad much more.
