Revised Forms for Orphans’ Court and Register of Wills

In an order dated August 9, 2016, (No. 702 Supreme Court Rules Docket), the Supreme Court rescinded and replaced Some of the state-wide forms for use in the Orphans’ Court and Register of Wills, specifically Forms OC-1 through OC-6 and RW-06 through RW-10.   A revised Index to the Appendix of the Pennsylvania Orphans’ Court Rules was attached to the order.

The revisions were made so that the forms reflect the new Orphans’ Court rules that go into effect on September 1, and under the new rules the forms are exclusive, and local rules may not require or allow other forms in their place.  See Pa.O.C. Rule 1.8(a).  The forms themselves can be found on the website of the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts.
