COMMON PROBATE QUESTIONS


MY SPOUSE DIED.
WILL I LOSE MY HOME?

If you jointly owned your home or your spouse named you as the beneficiary of the home, you have the right of survivorship.

What happens if my loved one didn’t have a will?

If your loved one passed away without a will, Pennsylvania intestate laws will be applied. These laws use a formula to distribute the decedent’s property, and the personal representative will be instructed to follow this formula regardless of your loved one’s final wishes.

START SEEKING A PATH FORWARD

You’ve worked incredibly hard to build a stable life, not only to benefit yourself, but to benefit the generations to come. However, unless you put the necessary protections in place to ensure that your estate will be properly transferred upon your death, the state will have control over who receives your assets.

By putting together a comprehensive estate plan, you can rest easy knowing that your estate will be administered according to your final wishes, not state law. In addition, having legal documents like irrevocable trusts in place can help your family members avoid the difficult probate process down the line.
