Due to the Supreme Court declaration of a judicial emergency, we at Probate Court have had to adjust our procedures to protect everyone’s health and safety while still serving you to the fullest extent possible. Most services which we could previously provide in person and on a “walk-up” basis are now available only online and/or by appointment.

Please visit the links on this website for more information about what and how services can now be delivered. We urge you – before you come to the courthouse – to review the website to determine whether your filing will be accepted in person.

TEMPORARY HOURS OF OPERATION: During the judicial emergency, our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 12 noon and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
