CHAPTER 1GENERAL FORM OF PETITION1.1GENERAL TYPES OF PETITIONSThere are two petition procedures to begin proceedings in Orphans’ Court Division (the“Orphans’ Court”). Both require filings with the Clerk of the Orphans’ Court (the “Clerk”).One must decide whether a Rule 1.2.A petition, as so designated in the PhiladelphiaOrphans’ Court Rules (the “Rules”), or a petition for citation under Rule 3.5.B, isappropriate.A Rule 1.2.A petition is used when a party wishes court approval of a proposed act.Typically, this would be approval to invade principal held in a restricted account, leave totake discovery, the appointment of a guardian for a minor, or a request for the fixing ofadditional security in order to sell real estate.A Rule 1.2.A petition, when filed, is held by the Clerk for the requisite twenty days underthe Rules. Counsel is required to give notice to and serve a copy of the petition on allinterested parties at the time of filing. The notice must state that an answer may be filed withthe Clerk within twenty days, and that failure to file an answer will result in the matter goingbefore the court as uncontested. See 3.2. A copy of the notice letter must be attached to thepetition as an exhibit. No notice is required of a Rule 1.2.A petition when the consents of allinterested parties are attached to the petition.Counsel should indicate on the cover sheet which is affixed to the petition whether noticeis required and whether the joinders of all parties are attached. If no notice is required or alljoinders are attached, the petition would then be sent by the Clerk directly to the MotionJudge.If a party wishes to compel another party to perform an act, then a petition for citation underRule 3.5.B must be filed, in which the individual is cited to show cause why he should notbe compelled to perform the designated act. A citation is a writ issued out of a court ofcompetent jurisdiction, commanding a person or entity named therein to appear on a daynamed and do something therein mentioned, or show cause why the person or entity shouldnot. The purpose of a citation is to obtain in personam jurisdiction over a person or entity.If a citation is required, counsel should prepare a petition requesting the court to issue acitation. The petition would fall under Rule 1.2.A.(1) as a petition for which no notice isrequired. Once the petition has been approved by the court, the Clerk will prepare the Philadelphia Bar Association and Wachovia Bank, National AssociationGreen Book

1.1GENERAL TYPES OF PETITIONScitation to be served by counsel upon all interested parties along with a copy of the petition.The preliminary decree awarding the citation states that the citation is “Returnable sec. leg.”(meaning “returnable according to law”). The Clerk typically fixes a return date of forty-fivedays from the date the judge signs the preliminary decree. Pursuant to Section 765 of theProbate, Estates and Fiduciaries Code (the “PEF Code”), when no time is specifically fixedby the Orphans’ Court, the citation is effective for six months from the date the judge awardsthe citation. Under the Orphans’ Court Rules, any party cited must be given at least twentydays notice in which to file an answer with the Clerk. Service of the citation and petition maybe made by an adult person, by the Sheriff of the county wherein the citation issued, or bydeputized service by the Sheriff of any county in which service can be had. The citation canalso be served by registered mail, by publication, or written acceptance of service by or onbehalf of the person to whom the citation is directed. After service of the citation and petitionhas been made, the original citation with proof of service must be filed with the Clerk. If theparty to whom a citation has been awarded fails or is unable to serve the citation and petitionwithin the time provided, an alias citation may be requested. In the event the party to whoman alias citation has been awarded fails or is unable to serve the citation and petition withinthe time provided, a pluries citation may be requested. Any subsequent citations requestedare also called pluries citations. Philadelphia Bar Association and Wachovia Bank, National AssociationGreen Book
