A secure DROP-OFF BOX is available outside the courthouse doors (under the roof area) to save time of coming inside the building during work-day hours. We will check the box throughout the day. Please use binder clips and/or envelopes to secure that your work is in order.
If you need to just stop by to check your Attorney box or sign for documents (with no envelope), you will still need an appointment. Please follow the floor lines posted in the courthouse main lobby to enter the Register & Recorder office waiting lane [located along the service elevator wall] in the courthouse lobby, and wait for your turn to enter the Register & Recorder office. As you approach our Entrance door, kindly STOP TO WAIT for a staff member to prompt you to enter.
PUBLIC TERMINAL SEARCHING: (title searchers, attorneys & staff and public):
Public terminals are available for public searching in the lobby, please contact the Prothonotary's office to schedule an appointment. No public terminal searching is available in the Register & Recorder Office at this time. You will be able to have access to Register & Recorder records, Prothonotary Civil records, and Tax Services records on the public terminals.
Estate Probates will be available BY APPOINTMENT.
VIRTUAL ESTATES ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME FOR ATTORNEY REPRESENTED ESTATES. Please contact our office to set up a virtual estate appointment at 717.337.9826, or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Please follow these helpful steps to probate in the office:
· Contact the Register of Wills Office to schedule a specific appointment to probate. Tele: 717.337.9826
· Plan to appear in person with only directly-related parties (executor, administrators, non-subscribing witnesses) to minimize the amount of people to be in our office lobby. Those not directly-related to the estate should wait outside the courthouse building.
Thank you in advance for your understanding as we try to format procedures that work for the safety of everyone.
