Pennsylvania Probate From Out Of State

Last updated on September 1, 2022

Losing a loved one is always hard, but there is a wrinkle that is becoming increasingly common: losing a loved one from afar. If you have family in another state who passes on, you may have a great deal of work to help resolve their affairs. If your loved one was a Pennsylvania resident, you might want to speak with a local attorney who understands the law and what you have to do.

At Family Legal Center, LLC, attorney Laura Cohen has decades of experience helping clients through Pennsylvania probate law. She works with clients from Pittsburgh and across the country who have concerns with probate in the Keystone state. We act as guides and advisors to our clients.

How Does A Local Attorney Help In Probate?

Every state, every district and every judicial jurisdiction does things a little bit differently. The laws about how probate works are slightly different from state to state. From matters of intestacy to possible taxation, the legal differences are stark and mistakes can be costly.

Also, a local attorney who regularly works in Pennsylvania’s probate court understands the unique procedures. Every judge has a preference for how they run their court. Understanding those differences, and having a relationship with the court, can make things easier.

How Family Legal Center, LLC, Gets To Work

Whether you’re in New York, California, West Virginia or North Dakota, you want to know that your loved one’s affairs are getting the attention they deserve. You want your attorney to keep you apprised of developments.

That’s what we do. When you’re not close to the situation, we make it feel like you are right there. We understand the law; we understand your struggles from afar. We help bridge the gap so you can see that your family gets the care it deserves.
