Many clients ask us what probate is and how to get started.

First, be sure to make a careful search for the will and make sure that it
is the most up to date will.  Probating the wrong will is a mistake that

the right will, and that it needs to be probated, then you should become
an educated consumer and know what the probate system means and
how it works.

that an Executor or Administrator follows in the estate of someone
who dies in Pennsylvania (PA).
