Orphans' Courts

Orphans' Courts have jurisdiction over judicial probate, administration of estates, and conduct of personal representatives. The Orphans' Courts also have concurrent, but not coextensive, jurisdiction with circuit courts to appoint guardians of the persons, and protect the estates, of unemancipated minors. The Orphans' Courts' jurisdiction lies where neither a parent nor testamentary appointee is serving as guardian.*
