The Orphans’ Court Procedural Rules Committee has published proposed new rules for guardianship proceedings, Pa.O.C. Rules 14.1 to 14.14, and new Orphans’ Court Forms G-01 through G-06. These new proposed rules are revisions to the rules that were proposed in December 2016, 46 Pa.B. 7934.
A Republication Report on the rules and their revisions is included with the proposed rules and forms.
An amendment to Pa.O.C. Rule 1.5 is also proposed in order to vacate local guardianship rules once the new statewide rules become effective.
