CHAPTER 12
 
 
CERTIFICATION OF RECORD
TO THE ORPHANS' COURT

 

 
 
 
 
   

The PEF Code provides that when a caveat is filed or some other dispute arises before the Register, the matter may be certified, i.e., transferred, to the Orphans' Court at the discretion of the Register or at the discretion of the Court upon motion of a party in interest.

The Philadelphia Orphans' Court will not accept Certification of Record until the Register has heard sufficient testimony to conclude that a disputable and difficult question exists. Certification lies within the discretion of the Orphans' Court, but it is seldom granted upon motion of a party in interest in Philadelphia County.
