    It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Montgomery County Probate Court's web site.  The probate judge is also the Clerk of the Probate Court.  To assist me in managing the court records, the deputy clerks maintain and make available to the public all of the Probate Court records.  We are dedicated to creating an easily accessible Court for the citizens of Montgomery County.

    The Probate Court possesses exclusive jurisdiction over the administration of estates and trusts, appointment of guardians for incompetents and estates of minors, adoptions, the issuance of marriage licenses, name changes, commitment of the mentally ill and various other actions.  The Court also approves settlements in wrongful death actions and minor injury claims.

    Our web site, which is updated daily, offers information on cases filed within our court.  Forms and instructions over many of the subject matter filed within our Court are provided on this website.

    The Montgomery County Probate Court is dedicated to resolving matters and disputes fairly and efficiently.

    We accomplish our mission by: 

    • Offering easy access to the court for prompt problem resolution;
    • Providing quality and innovative services to the public;
    • Ensuring efficient case management by a professional and courteous staff; and
    • Upholding the law and delivering justice in an equitable and just manner.


    Most of our records are public information.  Exceptions to this include the departments of Mental Health and Adoptions.
