The Bucks County Register of Wills has bowed to popular demand and the changing electronic (and plastic) world in which we live. As of February 2014, the Bucks County Register of Wills will accept credit cards. This means that when you are filing a Will for probate at the Register of Wills, you no longer need to use your personal funds to cover the cost until you can obtain Letters allowing you to access the deceased’s accounts. By using your credit card, you can now obtain the letters and have your estate planning lawyer access the accounts and free up the funds to cover the cost before the card payment comes due.
This is a great convenience to the Register’s customers and a great relief to many Pennsylvanians who simply do not have the cash available for the Register’s fees.
