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!

Mr. Klenk has been easy to work with. I am confident he has given me good advice whenever I have called upon him. He has shown good work ethic and depth of knowledge in preparation of estate, wills, and trusts that I have worked with him on.

Kevin K.

I was referred to Peter after my divorce to put documents together to protect my assets. He suggested a number of documents that would help protect my children and their future. Also, he put together wills, power of attorney and living wills. I initially spoke with him on the phone, he took 30-40 minutes to understand my situation and explain the benefits of having such documents. After a week or two, I met with him in his office and signed the documents. Everything else was remote phone calls and emails. He re-explained these documents and what whom to share. I am in good hands.
