Proposed Amendment to Appellate Procedure for Orphans’ Court Appeals

The Appellate Court Procedural Rules Committee has proposed changes to the Rules of Appellate Procedure that would require the notice of appeal in an appeal from the Orphans’ Court to specifically state that it is an Orphans’ Court appeal, which is defined as an appeal under Pa.R.A.P. 342. According to the committee, the amendments are intended to reflect the operation of Pa.R.O.C.P. 4.6, which is similar to Pa.R.Civ.P. 236 and establishes the date of entry of an adjudication or decree in the Orphans’ Court. “Proposed Amendment of Pa.R.A.P. 102 and 904,” 53 Pa.B. 4962 (8/12/2023).
