Need Help With A Probate Or Estate Administration?
Probate is the process by which a deceased person’s estate (his or her property, money and other assets) is distributed to appropriate parties, such as the decedent’s heirs. In Pennsylvania, probate can be fairly simple or quite complex, depending on the value of the estate, the types of assets in the case, and whether there are significant debts to be resolved.
How We Can Help
At Rowe Law Offices, P.C., our estate administration attorneys can handle the estate for you. We will work closely with the executor/executrix/administrator of the estate to gather assets, minimize payment of debt, and save as much in taxes as possible. With decades of combined legal experience, our lawyers understand how to guide you through the process as effectively and efficiently as possible.
The deceased’s personal representative (also called an executor or administrator) must file the will and a “petition for probate” at the Register of Wills. Working in conjunction with the personal representative, after we gather the estate’s assets, pay any debts and pay the inheritance tax (if applicable), then we can distribute the assets to the heirs to carry out the wishes of the decedent.
Discuss Your Probate And Administration Options
If you do not have a will or an estate plan of your own, learn why you may want to draft one now rather than later.
