The following pages provide more information about Pennsylvania probate:
- Pennsylvania probate proceedings: Probate is the process of paying the bills of a deceased person, filing taxes, and distributing the balance of the estate to those persons who are entitled to receive it.
- Representing personal administrators: If you have been named the executor or personal administrator of another person's estate, you have been given an important responsibility. You can also incur significant personal liability if you make mistakes.
- Tax consequences of administering an estate: While most estates in Pennsylvania are exempt from the federal estate tax, the same cannot be said of the Pennsylvania inheritance tax. Pennsylvania assesses an inheritance tax on property owned by resident and nonresidents.
- Will contests and probate litigation: Our lawyers represent personal administrators and beneficiaries in will contests and other types of probate disputes.
