The Justinian Society of Philadelphia will present the CLE luncheon seminar "What Trial Lawyers Should Know About Orphans' Court" with the Honorable Matthew D. Carrafiello, Judge of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas' Orphans' Court Division, on Wednesday, April 30th at Dilworth Paxson, 1500 Market Street, Suite 3500E, Philadelphia, PA.

Summary:

Attorneys who practice in the area of civil litigation in Philadelphia County will most likely find themselves handling matters which fall within the jurisdiction of the Orphans' Court Division of The Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.

On its website, The Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas describes the functions of Orphans' Court as follows:

The Orphans' Court serves to protect the personal and property rights of all persons and entities that may not be otherwise capable of handling their own affairs. The jurisdiction of the Orphans' Court includes matters concerning minors, incapacitated persons, decedents' estates, nonprofit corporations and trusts. Additionally, the Court has the authority to settle any dispute or issue that may arise in connection to the application for a Marriage license through the Philadelphia Marriage License Bureau.

Topics covered in this CLE seminar include:

  • Brief History of Orphans' Court
  • Jurisdiction of Orphans' Court
  • Peculiarities of Orphans' Court
  • Situations in Which the Trial Practitioner Will Most Likely Need Orphan's Court

Honorable Matthew D. Carrafiello, Judge of The Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas' Orphans' Court Division
