Orphans' Court Division Number


When a petition, account or any document is filed for the first time in the Orphans' Court, the Clerk will assign an Orphans' Court number. This number will remain the same on any future filings in that matter (decedent's estate, minor's estate, incapacity proceeding or trust). It is always a different number from the one which may have been previously assigned by the Register of Wills.

This number is easily found in the Orphans' Court Number Index Book in the Clerk's office and should be used on all pleadings for that matter or on the Orphans' Court Online Docket Access system, available through the Court's website http://courts.phila.gov/cpo.html.
