In Pennsylvania, probate is the process of resolving any financial matters related to the person who has passed away, known as the decedent. Most often, this process will involve the filing of tax returns, paying bills and ultimately distributing the remaining assets to heirs.
This process is often emotionally challenging from the beginning. It can be legally overwhelming as well, and it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced lawyer to help you navigate the estate laws regardless of the size of the estate. Of course, as the size of the estate grows, the legal hurdles are more significant.
