Why you need a Will
With a legally valid Will when you pass on, you ensure that your assets are distributed to the people you designate. You also can designate a guardian for any minor children and an executor or personal representative to manage the administration of your estate after your death. Without a valid Will, Pennsylvania dictates distribution.
If your desires change over time, or if you’ve gone through a divorce, you should make a new will or modify it through a codicil. The Wills and Estates Attorneys at Liebmann Family Law work closely with you to ensure your needs are met.
Probating an estate
After your loved one passes, it is emotionally difficult to deal with probating his or her estate. Our experienced Estate Attorneys can guide you through the often confusing probate process that involves:
Proving in Court that your loved one’s Will is valid
Identifying, inventorying and appraising his or her property
Paying debts or taxes
Distributing the property according to the Will
Transferring asset title and ownership to designated beneficiaries

Bucks County Wills and Estates Attorneys answer your questions
Q: Is it necessary for a lawyer to draft my will?
While it may seem straightforward for you to draft your will yourself, personally-drafted wills tend to be incomplete and are, therefore, invalid under state law. The Wills and Estates lawyers at Liebmann Family Law are well versed in Pennsylvania law and can legally draft a will that is valid under state law.
What are the duties and obligation of an executor or personal representative?
Q: If your loved one has named you as executor or personal representative of his or her estate, you must adhere to Pennsylvania law by:
- Giving the proper notices to proper parties
- Collecting the decedent’s property
- Receiving claims against the estate
- Paying valid claims and disputing others
- Distributing estate property according to the will or state law
