THE PROBATE PROCESS (Part I)

It is well known that Pennsylvania has a very aging population. Accordingly, I have many clients inquire about the "Probate Process" in the various Pennsylvania counties. Quite simply, when an individual dies they either die with or without a Will. If they die without a Will, it is called dying intestate. Dying with a Will is called dying testate.

What is Probate - Part I

On numerous occasions I have been asked "what is probate" and what is the process? Quite simply, probate is a process that helps us to conclude a person's estate after they die. Normally, I'm approached by a child who's last parent has passed. They have no idea what do. They have heard of this mysterious process called "probate" and have no idea where to start.

WHAT IS PROBATE?

Probate is the post-death process performed by an attorney through the Register of Wills in which the deceased individuals assets are determined and valued, creditors are determined and paid, estate and and inheritance taxes are calculated and paid, with the filing of the requisite tax returns, and the remaining assets are distributed to the decedent's heirs.
