There is nothing easy about dealing with the death of a loved one, no matter the circumstances behind the loss of life. When, during probate and estate administration, concerns arise over the contents of that loved one's will, it is okay to ask questions. In some cases, it may even be okay to officially challenge the will in a Pennsylvania court. When might going that far be appropriate?
When ending a marriage, the division of property -- both of positive and negative value -- can be a complicated affair. It is not uncommon for some Pennsylvania residents to believe that they should be able to walk away from their marriages with certain positive assets and not be held accountable for their soon-to-be ex's debts.
