C. Jurisdiction

The Register of Wills of Philadelphia is a quasi-judicial officer of the Commonwealth with jurisdiction to grant Letters Testamentary or Letters of Administration for the estates of decedents who were domiciled in Philadelphia. The Register may also grant Letters when a non-resident decedent leaves property with a situs in Philadelphia and resolve certain disputed matters in connection with such estates.
