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!

I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link for a question regarding a will. While I was expecting only a few minutes, it was a lengthy conversation. He made sure he understood the situation by asking many questions before offering advice. He then went through my options and results of each one. He left it up to me to decide if I wanted to proceed and did not push me toward one or another. His website has very useful information which I definitely researched before I called him. While I decided not to proceed at this time, I feel I had enough information to make that decision. I would not hesitate to hire him should I need to in the future.

Peter recently gave a presentation about Wills & Trusts at my employer, and it was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable and provided valuable information to the group. People were very engaged and asked several questions, all of which Peter thoroughly answered. Personally, my husband and I have selected Peter to help us with our estate planning, and he has been very helpful in providing us with all of the information we need to provide a secure future for our family. Thank you, Peter!
