Father Who Filed False Petition Denied Letters of Administration

The decision of the Register of Wills to deny letters of administration to the father of the minor decedent, and grant letters to the mother instead, was affirmed because the father had filed a petition for letters in Beaver County and falsely stated that the minor was a resident in that county even though it was undisputed that the minor had actually resided with her mother in Allegheny County, as shown on the death certificate. Gennaro Estate, 1 Fid.Rep.4th 25 (Allegheny O.C. 2022), aff’d 758 WDA 2022 (PA Super. 2/9/2023).
