How does one challenge a Will for lack of testamentary capacity?

Orphans' Court litigation is the way to challenge a Will. Probate of a Will in Pennsylvania is usually a fairly straightforward process. The Will is filed with the Register of Wills and the Executor is appointed to administer the estate, to pay bills and taxes and eventually to distribute the assets according to the terms of the Will. This is how approximately 99 percent of all probate proceedings happen.

Guardianship of a loved one

Guardianships may be needed when loved ones in Pittsburgh have special needs or become unable to take care of themselves or have illnesses, such as Alzheimer's disease. Family members who have an elderly loved one or a special needs relative must understand how the law works in these matters with help from an attorney experienced in Orphans' Court litigation.

Addressing future care needs of Pennsylvanian Special Needs Loved One

Trusts may be helpful for special needs individuals, regardless of their ages. Often, it is believed that only older people might require residence in a nursing home, but there are conditions and illnesses that make it necessary for younger special needs people to receive this level of care.
