Chester County Register of Wills and Clerk of Orphans’ Court Increase Probate Fees

Posted on Tue Aug 26, 2014, on Probate and Estate Administration

The only constant is change, and that holds especially true for filing fees. Effective immediately, the Chester County Register of Wills and Clerk of Orphans’ Court announced that the Commonwealth’s portion of all initial Petition filing fees will increase from $23.50 to $35.50; a 51% increase.

Compared to other states in which we file estate related Petitions, including New York and New Jersey, these fees are still very reasonable. You will find that at times of budget problems, fees will be raised. This is because a fee is not a “tax,” so by raising a fee the Commonwealth will raise more funds but it has not “increased taxes.”

As I said, the only constant is change.
