Montgomery County Orphans’ Court Accepts Probate Electronic Filing

Posted on Wed Aug 27, 2014, on Probate and Estate Administration

Montgomery County Orphans’ Court Local Rule 3.7A states that the Clerk of the Orphans’ Court of Montgomery County shall now accept all legal papers and exhibits either by traditional paper filings or Petitions for Probate and other filings may be made by electronic filing through the Clerk of Orphans’ Court of Montgomery County Electronic Filing System.

Unlike other counties, Montgomery County chose not to change its filing rules so that all filing must be electronic by a certain date. This will be helpful for older practitioners who might need some time to modify their practice to include electronic filing. Over time, though, electronic filing will make the Montgomery County system much more user friendly, speed up the process and reduce costs.

As a Probate Attorney, in the “old days” Petitions for Probate were prepared ahead of time and I would meet the client at the Register of Wills to file the Petition. If the Petition had a typo or if the client brought up additional information while at the Register’s office, it would hold up the process. This new system will allow me to complete and review paperwork with my clients ahead of time. This way I can electronically file the completed and reviewed Petition for Probate and the client can go to the Register at his or her leisure to be sworn in. My presence is no longer needed. This saves me time, and the client money.

Keep up the good work Register of Wills!

Peter is excellent. I had a very complicated situation with my parents' estate planning and potential Medicaid needs. Peter was very knowledgeable in estate planning matters, able to define the best solution for the situation. Additionally, he was congenial and able to communicate effectively to my senior citizen parents the benefits of estate planning. He earned my trust, and more importantly, my parents' trust in a 45 mins consultation period. Highly recommend Peter. He is very easy to work with.
