PROBATE HOURS: Office open Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

Probate is the judicial process for transferring the property of a person who has died (called a decedent). The Probate Court appoints legally qualified persons, called personal representatives, to manage and settle the decedent's business affairs, and pass the decedent’s real and personal property to the rightful recipients. Rightful recipients might include heirs, persons named in a valid and current will, and creditors.
