(a) Filing in common pleas.--The prothonotary of any court of common pleas shall, on demand of any party in interest, file and docket a certified transcript or extract from the record showing that an orphans' court division has adjudged an amount to be due by a personal representative, and such transcript or extract shall constitute a judgment against the personal representative from the time of its filing with the same effect as if it had been obtained in an action in the trial or civil division of the court of common pleas.  If the amount adjudged to be due by the personal representative shall be increased or decreased on appeal, the prothonotary shall, if the decree of the appellate court is certified to him, change his records accordingly, and if the appellate court has increased the amount, the excess shall constitute a judgment against the personal representative from the time when the records are so changed.

(b) Satisfaction and discharge.--If the orphans' court division shall order the personal representative to be relieved from any such judgment, the prothonotary shall, on demand of any party in interest, enter on his records a certified copy of such order, which shall operate as a satisfaction of the judgment.
