What if I have a loved one that passed away and I’ve never done a virtual probate?
Most counties in Pennsylvania now allow virtual probate. If you have a loved one that has passed away typically what would happen is if you would have to probate the estate, you would travel to the courthouse to be sworn in as the executor. Technology has now provided us with the virtual probate option. With virtual probate, you are welcome to come to our office, and we can facilitate the virtual probate. Our job is to prepare the paperwork needed for the probate prior to the virtual probate. During the actual virtual probate, the executor gets sworn in, takes the oath, signs the petition in front of the camera. The courthouses are doing a great job facilitating these virtual probates. If you have any questions about virtual seminars or estate administration, please contact our office.
