Losing a loved one is never easy. It is an emotional and difficult time for everyone involved. Unfortunately, addressing the legal and financial obligations of your loved one's estate can make this difficult time all the more stressful.
When a loved one passes away, his or her estate must go through Pennsylvania's probate process. This process is overseen by the court with the purpose of concluding a deceased's final affairs. The probate process is complex and confusing, especially for someone who is appointed an executor who has little to no previous experience administering an estate.
