Need to file a Petition for removal of current executor.

Asked over 2 years ago - Philadelphia, PA

Executor named in will renounced in favor of current executor. Current executor is not able to serve - original executor now wants to serve. Can someone tell me where I can find an example of a Petition. Thanks.

    Answered . You may be able to find something on the Philadelphia Register of Wills website, but I believe that this may require more legal assistance. It is not a common situation.

    Good luck.
