Family Court Had Jurisdiction to Divide Marital Property Following Death of Spouse

Wife in divorce action died on the same day the decree of divorce was entered, and the family court later issued a final order for the equitable division of marital property. The family court, and not the Orphans’ Court, had jurisdiction to order the executor to sell and transfer assets in accordance with the order for equitable division and to impose sanctions on the executor for failing to comply with that order. Tomasetti v. Suarez, 1004 EDA 2022 (Pa. Super. 2/22/2023), (non-precedential).
