Declaratory Judgment
 
An action for declaratory judgment is commenced by petition and citation. See Phila.O.C. Rule 1.2.P for the contents of the petition.

For declaratory judgment practice in general see Hunter, Judgments. See Remick, §44.03(f) for the types of matters in which the Court will grant a declaratory judgment. See PEPH, Green Book, 2.6 for a sample petition.

On occasion it may be useful to seek a declaratory judgment as to property rights in order to determine tax liabilities. See Remick, §18.08; see also Declaratory Judgments Act, 42 Pa. C.S. §7531 et. seq.
